Spay and Neuter: Vital to Pet Wellness

puppy-kitten-spay-neuter.jpgHere at Bee Ridge Veterinary Clinic in Sarasota, we maintain the health of all kinds of pets. Veterinarians perform pet check-ups and surgeries at our animal clinic, but one of the procedures most frequently performed here is spay and neuter surgery. Dr. Tudin and our dedicated veterinary staff always recommend spay and neuter procedures because having the surgery is one of the most vital parts of pet wellness.

Why Our Sarasota Vet Recommends 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.

Veterinarians say that pets who are spayed or neutered are generally better behaved pets overall. Much of the behavior that people may attribute to "puppy" or "kitten" behavior could actually be related to hormonal issues that can easily be resolved during the spay or neuter process. Pets that have more level hormones, rather than pre-spay or neuter hormone surges, will be calmer and more content, which generally leads to improved behavior.

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. 

If a pet escapes from the home just one time, an unwanted litter of dogs or cats could be the result. Spay or neuter surgery is something that we encourage all responsible pet owners to do, since smart pet owners understand that keeping the pet population regulated is important.

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. Contact us today to schedule a spay or neuter procedure at our animal clinic.
