Join Dr. Donna Raditic, DVM, CVA, DACVIM (Nutrition) as she dives into the physiologic changes that occur after spaying and neutering and how to mitigate these changes with nutrition. Spaying and neutering (S/N) dogs and cats are important surgical procedures with numerous health benefits. While many consider the procedure routine, we must discuss the significant physiologic changes that occur that are predisposing pets to obesity. Sex hormones impact caloric requirement, activity level, and have an inhibitory effect on appetite. When we take these sex hormones away, the S/N pet is left hungry but requiring less calories. It is time to discuss this known risk and learn how to correctly alter the nutrition and feeding of the S/N pet.

Donna M. Raditic is a graduate of Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine and a Diplomat of the American College of Veterinary Nutrition. She was a Professor for both the Nutrition and the Integrative Medicine Services at the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine. Currently she is a member of East Coast Think Tank established by Veterinary Nutritional Consultations, Inc. which offers independent information and consulting about companion animal nutrition and pet supplements. With a career that includes being a general practitioner, veterinary nutritionist, academician, and consultant, she offers unique perspectives on the role of nutrition, supplements, and integrative veterinary care for companion animals.
