WHAT IS SPAY/NEUTER?
Male dogs and cats are neutered by removing their testicles. Female dogs and cats are spayed by removing their reproductive organs. After the operation -- which requires anesthesia -- the pet will stay at your vet for a few hours or a few days. Usually, you'll need to return to the vet since the pet will need stitches removed after a few days. Your veterinarian can fully discuss the procedure and help you to determine the best age at which to sterilize your pet. Why is it good for pets to be spayed and neutered? One of the best reasons is the fact that communities, like those in Southern California, spend millions of dollars to control unwanted animals. Also, dogs and cats live longer, healthier lives when they are sterilized. Get more info at www.SpayUSA.org or call your local vet.

SUGGESTIONS FOR DOG TRAINERS OR L.B. AREA RESCUES?
Justin, We live in the Belmont Shore area and have a small child. Our inside-house dog came from a rescue about four years ago and has always had an aggressive stance with other dogs. He recently snapped at our child when the child came between our dog and a second floor stairway gate. I believe they call this fear or defensive-based aggression. While it pains us to consider placing our dog in a rescue or adoption center, we believe we must either take that route or siimply keep our dog outside. I would like to ask you if you can recommend any adoption centers in the Long Beach area --or-- alternatively any good trainers. My heartfelt hope is that we could re-train our dog. ---G.
