    I'm having a hard time finding the studies I've seen posted before, so I'm hoping someone can help me out. I know there were two studies done (one with Rotties and one with Goldens) comparing late/early alters in regards to various health issues. I also thought there was one comparing the health of various ages when neutered? Like, prepubescent, adolescent, adult, and old adult? Or have I gone crazy?

    I was discussing my reasons behind wanting to wait to have Abrams neutered until he's done maturing with a coworker and she looked at me like I had two heads when I said there were new studies looking at the health risks/benefits of early/late altering, so I thought I'd show her the studies.
