Spay & Neuter
Adopting a pet is a huge responsibility. It is up to you to make sure that your pet is safe, happy, and healthy. You should bring your pet to the veterinarian every year. One essential step to owning a cat or dog is having your pet spayed or neutered.
Spay & Neuter
Spaying is the sterilization process for female animals. It is a surgical procedure where a female animal's ovaries and uterus are removed. Neutering will sterilize a pet by removing his testicles. Both procedures are routine surgeries that veterinarians perform all the time. Pets who undergo the procedure often return home the same day.
What Are the Health Benefits of Spaying & Neutering Your Pet?
When you have your pet spayed or neutered, you will eliminate the risk of your pet developing several different forms of cancer. Since cancer in pets is often fatal, spaying or neutering your cat or dog can save its life.
How Can Spaying & Neutering Your Pet Make Your Life Easier?
When your pet has been spayed or neutered, undesirable behaviors and discharges your pet may otherwise display and leave around your home without the procedure, are prevented. This could range from aggression and territorial displays, to menstrual leavings and scent markings. A spayed or neutered pet is often much calmer and better behaved than those who aren’t.
At What Age Should a Pet Be Spayed or Neutered?
The best time to have a pet spayed or neutered is when they are still young. They can have the procedure when they are as young as four months old as long as they are in good health. The longer you wait to have your pet fixed, the riskier it becomes. Anesthesia is dangerous for older pets. Therefore, the younger you have your pet fixed, the safer it will be.
