One thought on “Can Spaying or Neutering Harm My German Shepherd?

    A dog will not feel any pain during the surgery to get him or her neutered or spayed. This is because the veterinarian will administer an anesthetic that will cause the dog to go to sleep throughout the entire procedure. After the procedure, the veterinarian will administer an injection that will prevent the dog from feeling any pain for at least 8 but up to 12 hours. Generally speaking, as long as a German Shepherd has no preexisting behavioral issues, his behavior will slowly calm down over the course of a number of months after being neutered. However, in a few dogs, this process can take several years to have a noticeable effect. This is because when a dog is sterilized, either complete castration (removal of both testicles) or in the case of a female, an ovariohysterectomy is performed, which removes the ovaries and uterus, or a few variation of this. While there are many benefits to neutering your German Shepherd, it’s also very important to acknowledge and understand the risks involved with having your GSD undergo this procedure.
