Why it is Important to Spay or Neuter Your Pet

  • Having your dogs and cats spayed or neutered will help them live longer, healthier lives.
  • Eliminate or reduce the incidence of a number of health problems that can be very difficult or expensive to treat. Pyometra (infection of the uterus) is a relatively common disease in un-spayed females that results in emergency surgery to save the pet's life.
  • Spaying eliminates the possibility of uterine or ovarian cancer and greatly reduces the incidence of mammary cancer, particularly when your pet is spayed before her first heat cycle.
  • Neutering eliminates testicular cancer and decreases the incidence of prostate disease.
  • Neutering cats makes them less likely to spray and mark their territory.
  • Reduce the problems with territorial and sexual aggression, inappropriate urination and other undesirable behavior issues.

     

Help stop pet over-population. By making sure your pet can't have puppies or kittens, you can have peace of mind that fewer pets will need to be euthanized in shelters. More than 3 million dogs and cats are euthanized in shelters nationwide every year.
