Here are some key reasons for having your pet spayed or neutered.
Female dogs and cats will live a longer, healthier life – Spaying helps prevent pyometra (pus-filled uterus) and breast cancer in female dogs and cats. Breast cancer can be fatal in about 50% of female dogs and 90% of female cats. Spaying before your pets first heat offers the best protection from these diseases.
Major health benefits for your male animal compansion – Preventing unwanted litters are one reason to neuter your male pet but the surgical removal of the testicles can also help prevent testicular cancer. This procedure can be done before six months of age.
Your spayed female will not go into heat – Did you know that female felines usually go into heat 4-5 days every three weeks during breeding season? When this happens they yowl and urinate more frequently in efforts to attract mates. Having your cat spayed will help reduce their urge to do this.
Male dogs won’t need to roam away from home – Male dogs are very persistent when it comes to finding a mate. Having your dog neutered will help with his want to roam and will lower his risks of injury in traffic or in fights with other male dogs.
Much better behaved – Neutered cats and dogs focus more of their attention on their human families and less on making one of their own. Many aggression problems can be avoided by early neutering.
Spaying or neutering is highly cost-effective – If you add up the cost of caring for a litter, the cost of your pet’s spay or neuter is a lot less.
It packs a powerful punch in the fight against pet overpopulation – Sadly, millions of cats and dogs of all breeds and ages are euthanized or suffer as strays. These high numbers are the result of unplanned, unwanted litters that could have and should have been prevented by spaying or neutering.
