These days, it’s more important than ever to spay and neuter your pet. Not only does it help control the animal population but there are numerous health benefits for your pet as well. Here are some of the advantages that come with getting your pet spayed or neutered:  

  • Reduced risk of certain cancers: Spaying and neutering can help reduce the incidence of benign prostatic hyperplasia, testicular cancer, ovarian cancer, and cervical cancer in dogs and cats.  
  • Contraception: Although it may seem obvious, spaying or neutering your pet is the most effective means of preventing unwanted pregnancies. We already have lot’s of pets available for adoption so neutering and spaying is vital to society. 
  • Reduced aggression: Unneutered animals are much more likely to become aggressive, especially when it comes to defending their territory. Neutering can help reduce this kind of behavior and make your pet a better companion. 
  • Improved health: Having your pet spayed or neutered will also reduce its risk for other reproductive diseases such as pyometra, a potentially deadly infection of the uterus.  
  • Better behavior: Neutered animals are generally calmer and less likely to wander or roam away from the house. This can help reduce the risk of your pet getting into dangerous situations or being hit by a car.  

The decision to spay or neuter your pet is an important one that shouldn’t be taken lightly.
