Spay and Neuter
Spay and neuter surgeries today are far simpler and less invasive than they have ever been in the past. Veterinarians often release pet patients the day after a surgery, and recovery is often complete within only a few days or a week. Our animal clinic recommends spay or neuter surgery for a variety of reasons, all of them important to pet wellness.
Pets that have been spayed or neutered will generally have less health problems than pets that have not had the procedure. For example, male dogs or cats will tend to have fewer issues with the prostate and a lower incidence of prostate cancer than their non-neutered counterparts. Female dogs and cats that are spayed will have fewer issues with reproductive organs. For example there will be a much lower chance of mammary tumors and uterine infections. Female cats and dogs will also not have to deal with difficult heat cycles.
Having your pets spayed or neutered is also essential for another reason: controlling the pet population. With thousands of pets being euthanized each year because there are not enough homes for them, keeping the pet population under control has become more vital than ever. A spayed or neutered pet will be unable to reproduce. Although many pet owners may feel that it is not a possibility that their pet could be the parent to a litter of kittens or puppies, mistakes are all too common.
Pets that are spayed or neutered enjoy health benefits and behavior benefits. Owners of spayed or neutered pets experience a great deal of relief in knowing their pet is healthy, and in knowing that they have done their part to control the pet population.
