• i have 2 7 month old lab mixes and they have always gotten along no problem. Recently the started to randomly fight and go at it with each other. Can this be because they both got fixed just recently? Since this has not happened before they got fixed?

    Hi Julie,
    I recommend that you talk to your local veterinarian about this question. There can be many different reasons for this type of behavior. Usually it would not be from getting spayed or neutered. In fact, this is often a treatment for fighting. To properly identify the cause of this will require a detailed medical history from you. This helps to find the issue that is triggering the behavior. Once that is identified, your vet can work with you on a behavior modification plan that is specific to your pets.
