FWIW for me, who isn't rolling in money, the cheaper option IS the bet for the dogs because I don't want an emergency to catch me short of money because I decided to do the OSS procedure on my female or give my male a vasectomy instead of spay/neuter.
Imagine also how high adoption fees would be if shelters & rescue groups were forced to do OSS/vasectomies instead of the cheaper spay/neuter bdcsuse a few people think that spay/neutering is inhumane or wrong?
Think of me what you like but I will stick with spay/ neutering.
Have to agree.
Unrelated, I hate the sudden emergence of spay snobbery.
Like I've said before here, and I will maintain saying..... As far as I'm concerned spaying, neutering will always be promoted, because average joe don't give a **** about alternatives.
If someone cares, they will look. If they're interested then point them in the right directions. If they just own a dog, then just spay it.
