Getting pet parents to really understand the benefit of allowing growth plates to grow out is PABS goal. For years in this country (US) pet parents have been doing it WRONG. We have always thought that spaying our pet at a young age was right, but it’s not. Please don’t take my word for it, I’m not just trying to sell product. Google it for your self… Google “the negative effects on spaying too young”. Other countries are way ahead of us on the (US) on this Issue. I sell a tremendous amount of PABS systems abroad. The US is GETTING it slowly, but we are beginning to get it. We can add 4 to 5 yrs. to our pets life by waiting or not performing the surgery at all. The dog chastity belt is the only natural pet birth control on the market globally.
