Do you think cats and dogs should have a liter before being spayed or neutered?


I know everyone thinks there should be no more born than necessary but we are talking about a personal pet we love and have for many years and I have read they are less likely to have tumors if they give birth once. Have you heard this and what do you think?

    OK Becky, yours is the answer I was looking for and glad to hear it since I did get my cat spayed before heat so that is great to hear! I would do whatever it took for an animal I love.

    I see from someone elses answer that this is not so if you spay them before they go onto heat so there is the answer I was looking for. I have one pet for life and if a litter of kittens would make her live longer I would let her. My right.

    Thanks Bob you & Becky had my answer that if I had one fixed before heat & I did so I am very relieved. To the other I would never breed an ill animal. You would not believe the weeks I went thro keeping a kitten alive but I had her fixed 1st

    I think its because they were born to breed & we take that chance from them. They are animals yes but God made them same as he did us with same desires and of course there are a few weirdos in everything! lol It bothers me too though mine's fixe

    Well I am not too sure; I don't have any real facts in my memory to put out right now but even in human females I have read certain things that are more common in women who have not had children. Haven't you?

    I can see a difference of opinion but this is ridiculous. Of course I would not breed a sick or unhealthy cat and that had nothing to do with the question. I had a young one fixed just recently for that very reason. I kept her alive but no kittens.
