In animal fancy and animal husbandry, entire indicates an animal has not been desexed, i.e., spayed or neutered. Animals are desexed for selective breeding purposes. Males may also be neutered in order to make them more tractable or meatier. A specialized vocabulary has arisen for neutered animals of given species. Except where a desexed pet is desirable, entire animals usually fetch much higher prices than castrated ones, mostly because they retain the ability to breed. There are various health effects of the decision to leave an animal intact, or to castrate it. Leaving a female animal intact may lead to such complications as ovarian cysts, uterine infections such as pyometra, and cancer of the reproductive tract. In small animals such as dogs and cats, the ovaries and uterus are removed eliminating the possibility of disease in these organs. By de-sexing or spaying the female, the animal is surgically sterilized and cannot get pregnant; this however, may lead to weight gain in the pet and may not be able to burn as many calories in their daily activities. This can be avoided by reducing the food intake once the female has been surgically sterilized to prevent unnecessary weight gain. In addition to a reduced caloric intake, increasing the animals daily physical activity once recovered from surgery will help reduce the chance of weight gain after being de-sexed.

Examples of entire in a Sentence
Whenever I pursued [ the subject ], either in individual conversation or in questions before the full committee, no one alluded that there were any conversations going on with the Castro regime, one would begin to wonder to what degree State Department was engaged in all this. Certainly, as someone who is going to continue to have a leadership role on the committee on Senate Foreign Relations, it's going to create a doubt in my mind when State Department witnesses come before the committee. Are State Department witnesses either telling us the entire truth, or are State Department witnesses just shunned out of the process by White House ? Either way, it's going to create some real concerns( over) the veracity of what we're hearing in testimony, as we move forward.
