Benefits of Spaying or Neutering Pets
Spaying your female dog or cat:
*Helps prevent serious medical conditions, such as uterine infections, uterine/ovarian cancer and breast cancer.
*Is far less expensive than the cost of treating an infection, having an emergency C-section, treating cancer or raising a litter of puppies or
Neutering your male dog or cat:
*Helps prevent serious medical conditions, such as testicular cancer and often has a positive effect on your pet's behavior.
*Makes pet less likely to mark his territory or spray urine throughout the house.
*Tends to make pet less aggressive and less likely to roam.
Neutering your pet prior to maturity and spaying your pet prior to her first heat cycle (both at 4-6 months old) offers the best protection against serious health issues and the establishment of negative behaviors.
