    Why to Spay and Neuter?

    Benefits for you and your pet:

    Your companion will live a longer, healthier life and you will experience fewer headaches if you get him or her spayed or neutered.

    Spaying and neutering reduces or eliminates:

    • The odds of breast cancer and dangerous uterine infections in females and prostate problems and testicular cancer in males.
    • Frustration in resisting the natural urge to mate. Your pet will be less distracted, more easily trained, and a more contented member of your family.
    • The animal’s need to roam in search of a mate, decreasing the chances that your pet will become lost, get into fights with other animals or be hit by a car.
    • Messy heat cycles in females and attracting unwanted males.
    • Spraying, wailing, marking territory, or making inappropriate sexual approaches toward people or objects.
    • What is Spay and Neuter?
    • A spay is the surgical removal of a female animal’s reproductive organs so she cannot become pregnant.
    • A neuter is the surgical removal of a male animal’s testicles so that he cannot impregnate a female.
    • The surgeries….animals are under general anesthesia so that they do not feel any pain. An animal may experience some discomfort after the surgery, but most veterinarians will provide medication to help ease the soreness.
