There are lots of good reasons for neutering your dog – among them, eliminating the chance of ending up with many more dogs. However, there are some side effects of neutering that many owners aren’t aware of. In particular, neutering can triple the risk of obesity – and extra weight can lead to a range of additional issues such as joint disease, arthritis, heart disease, pancreatitis and diabetes.
Clearly, nutrition is vitally important once your dog has been neutered. Royal Canin’s Vet Diet range for neutered dogs caters precisely to the changes in your dog’s hormonal makeup and metabolism. In particular, its low-calorie formula promotes a feeling of fullness while helping your dog maintain optimum weight. It also helps to maintain healthy intestinal flora and keep food moving through the digestive system, and its patented antioxidant complex ensures your dog’s immune system remains strong and healthy.
