The Capsule Report

Informing veterinarians continuously for over 36 years.

The Capsule Report is based on a simple premise “that few veterinarians have the time to study all the lengthy articles in veterinary journals, news reports, and newsletters, nor does the busy clinician have the time to attend all the veterinary conferences that the Capsule covers. The Capsule Report selects the articles that are of practical significance to the veterinarian and separates the wheat from the chaff (i.e. the "good stuff" you want and care about), saving you time and money. The Capsule Report also gathers pertinent information from over 40 national, regional, and state meetings and conferences that can be of immediate use to the practitioner.

Effects of Early Neuter

Puberty initiates a release of hor mones that help close the epiphyseal plates on long bones. Absent this sig nal, the long bones grow beyond their intended length and interfere with the normal size and mechanical relationship between bone and joint. This abnormal relationship can lead to a va riety of orthopedic issues, including an increased incidence of cranial cruciate ligament rupture, hip dysplasia and patellar luxation. This author can almost always predict whether a purebred dog was spayed or neutered prior to puberty based on conformational differences.
