Why should you spay and neuter your pets?
1. Spaying helps prevent uterine infections and mammary cancer.
Mammary cancer is fatal in about 50% of female dogs and 90% of female cats. A female pet spayed before their first heat will have no chance of developing a mammary tumor.
2. Neutering provides major health benefits for your male pet.
Besides preventing unwanted litters, neutering your male companion before six months of age can prevent painful prostate hyperplasia (enlargment), prostatic cysts, and testicular cancer.
3. Your spayed female won't go into heat.
While cycles can very, female cats usually go into heat for 4-5 days every three weeks during breeding season. In an effort to advertise for potential mates, they'll yowl and urinate more frequently - sometimes all over the house!
4. Your neutered male won't want to run away from home.
An intact male will do just about anything to find a mate! That includes digging his way under a fence and making like Houdini to escape from the house. And once he's free to roam, he risks injury in traffic and fights with other males.
5. Your neutered male will be much better behaved.
Neutered cats and dogs focus their attention on their human families. On the other hand, unneutered cats and dogs may mark their territory by spraying strong-smelling urine all over the house. Many aggression problems can be avoided by early neutering.
6. Spaying or neutering will NOT make your pet gain weight.
Don't use that old excuse! Lack of exercise and overfeeding will cause your pet to pack on the pounds - not spaying or neutering. Your pet will remain fit and trim as long as you continue to provide exercise and monitor food intake.
7. It is highly cost-effective.
The cost of your pet's surgery is a lot less than the cost of having and caring for a litter. It also beats the cost of treatment when your unneutered male escapes and gets into fights with the neighborhood stray!
8. Spaying and neutering your pet is good for the community.
Stray animals pose a real problem in many parts of the country. They can prey on wildlife, cause car accidents, damage the local fauna, and frighten children. Spay and neutering packs a powerful punch in reducing the number of animals on the streets.
9. Spaying and neutering helps fight pet overpopulation.
Every year, millions of cats and dogs of all ages and breeds are euthanized or suffer as strays. These high numbers are the result of unplanned litters that could have been prevented by spaying or neutering.
10. Your spayed and neutered pets will live a longer and healthier life!
