Benefits of Spay/Neuter Surgery
Spays and neuters are beneficial to all pets, whether cats or dogs, male or female. The procedure helps to reduce the number of unwanted litters, which in turn helps prevent shelter overcrowding and stray overpopulation. In addition, with fewer pets coming into shelters, current shelters pets have a better chance at being adopted.
Plus, benefits for your individual pet include:
Reduces the risk of certain cancers including mammary gland tumors, and cervical, ovarian, and uterine cancers in females and testicular cancer in males
Reduces the risk of certain diseases such as prostate problems in males and pyometra in females
Curbs undesirable behaviors in males including urine marking, mounting, and aggression toward other intact males
Eliminates your female’s heat cycles, which are frustrating for her (and you!), and can attract the unwanted attention of intact males
