Spaying and Neutering Your Teacup Maltese Puppy or Teacup Puppy
Benefits of spaying and neutering
Neutering a male Teacup Maltese puppy eliminates the possibility of testicular tumors and greatly reduces the chance of prostate problems. Neutering decreases the incidence of perianal tumors and hernias, which are commonly observed in older, unaltered males. Neutered Teacup Maltese males are less likely to try to escape a yard to find a female in season. This reduces the likelihood of them being hit by cars, getting into fights or lost.
Female Teacup Maltese Puppies spayed before their first estrous cycle ("heat") greatly reduces her chance of mammary tumors, ovarian cancer and uterine infection (all of which can be fatal and costly to treat). A spayed female eliminates the neighborhood stray males from camping out on your lawn trying to get at your female Teacup Maltese puppy when she comes into "heat." Giving birth to a litter can be dangerous to your female.
Spaying and neutering before sexual maturity also offers a temperament benefit. Teacup Maltese males neutered early in life tend to be less aggressive and less distracted. Neutered Teacup Maltese males are less likely to scent mark (real problem when they decide to mark inside the house). A spayed female also does not hormonally based swings and will be more focused on you as well. A female with a litter can become very aggressive, even to family members.
Do you know that a single male and female and their offspring can produce thousands of offspring in six years? Think, a Maltese female can have a litter as young as six months and then have one every six months after that. Be a responsible dog owner to prevent this situation.
Cost of spaying or neutering:
The cost of spaying and neutering is far less than you would spend getting a litter of puppies all their shots. It is less than paying for surgery for testicular tumors or treating a uterine infection. The cost of neutering your Teacup Maltese puppy is far less than having to patch up your male who tried to cross a busy street to get at an unspayed female. I have known males to try and cross six lane highways! The cost of spaying or neutering is less than having you carpets cleaned because your dog is marking his territory or your female Teacup Maltese puppy spotted on your nice rug.
My Teacup Maltese puppy will get fat and lazy.
Spay and neutering may diminish your pet's want to roam. Inactivity and poor feeding habits are generally the culprits in your pet's weight gain. Feed a good quality food, give your pet exercise and adjust the food level to your pet's activity level.
My Teacup Maltese puppy's personality will change.
The change will be for the better as explained above.
I am concerned about anesthesia.
This is a common concern. There is always a risk with any procedure that requiring anesthesia. Many vets use monitors to kept track of heart rate and respiration during surgery. Talk to you vet about your concerns. The medical benefits far outweigh the slight risk involved with spaying or neutering. Make sure that your veterinarian has experience with Teacups because they are risky. They are not like larger breeds.
