Why does the RSPCA advocate Early-age desexing (EAD)?

The RSPCA advocates that all dogs or cats offered for sale or adoption as companion animals should be desexed prior to transfer of ownership.
The RSPCA practices EAD from the age of 8 weeks when the surgery is simple and recovery is rapid.

Based on the available scientific evidence and extensive RSPCA experience performing EAD, the RSPCA considers EAD to be a safe and effective strategy to prevent unintended litters.
