How Prolong Your Dogs Life

All those who have a dog in their family want to enjoy their faithful companion in good health as long as possible.

It is direct and quite cruel, but castration in the male and sterilization in the female can prevent a lot of illness and accident. In the case of bitches, udder cancer and uterine infections will, among other things, be avoided.
