Several studies released over the past number of years have documented the adverse affects on the development of both male and female dogs resulting from spay and neuter. The American Veterinary Medical Association official policy now states “Mandatory spay-neuter is a bad idea.”
The AVMA policy statement goes on to say: “… potential health problems associated with spaying and neutering have also been identified, including an increased risk of prostatic cancer in males; increased risks of bone cancer and hip dysplasia in large-breed dogs associated with sterilization before maturity; and increased incidences of obesity, diabetes, urinary tract infections, urinary incontinence, and hypothyroidism.” (Reference: AVMA.org)
