I have a question I was always told that when you get a cat or dog fixed at a young age as they grow they will gain more weight then they would if they were fixed at a leter date. Is this true?

The reason I am asking is because since my uncle is probably moving inwith me and my mother we will have to get her fixed because of loki and eski his 2 dogs. They are both males and are sort of aggressive when it comes to trinity anyways. Trinity is almost 2 years old and i want to keep her at a healthy weight. So if I get her fixed now would I have to ajusted her diet so control her weight?

Personally I think it is all a myth that animals gain when they are fixed. Too much food and not enough exercise cause weight gain. Even if Trinity gains a few pounds by spaying her you will decrease her chance for certain cancers. I think that outweighs any cons to spaying.

Even if my uncles dogs are still acting aggressive towards trinity after this there is nothing more I can do because he is moving in one way or another and me and my mother don't have a choice.
Who's house is it? The other choice would be for the uncle to rehome his dogs.
