The long standing belief of neutering every animal before sexual maturity is a mantra that has potentially lived out its lifespan. Updated research has demonstrated increased health risks while trying to avoid others by performing gonadectomies in different breeds, species and ages. Join us with Reproductive Specialist Dr. Xavier Schneider as he updates us on the controversial topic of neutering.
Xavier graduated as a veterinarian from the University of Queensland and began his veterinary career working in mixed practice in Northern Australia focusing on Equine and Bovine Reproduction. On returning to Brisbane, he completed a rotating internship in Equine surgery, medicine and reproduction at The University of Queensland Equine Specialist Hospital. Xavier is currently undertaking a residency program in Theriogenology (Animal Reproduction) with the American College of Theriogenologists at Queensland Veterinary Specialists and The University of Queensland's School of Veterinary Science. Xavier has a clinical interest in canine, equine and bovine reproduction.
