Spay & Neuter Month
Spaying or neutering can help prevent common health issues such as uterine infections and breast cancer for females, and testicular cancer and prostate issues for males. Your loved one will live a longer, healthier life if you make the decision to spay and/or neuter.
- Improves your pet’s health & longevity – On average, neutered and spayed pets have increased lifespan of 3-5 years. Spaying and neutering reduces the risk of serious health issues including uterine infections and breast cancers (females), testicular and prostate cancers (males).
- Helps alleviate unruly behavior – Unneutered dogs and cats are more prone to spraying and urine-marking. Neutering solves 90% of marking issues. Spaying and neutering can also curb behavior issues such as aggression, excessive howling, mounting, and other dominance-related activates. The procedure will not change your pet’s intelligence and ability to learn, but better behavior will make the more desirable companions.
