Spaying and neutering is one of the most effective ways to reduce the homeless pet population and is safe for puppies as young as 12 weeks of age, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association. Spaying a female dog before the first heat cycle can be beneficial, improving the health of the pet by reducing the risk of certain reproductive cancers and infections.
