About Spay and Neuter Surgery

If you’re not breeding your dog or cat, it only makes sense to have him or her fixed to avoid unwanted litters. Fixing your female pet makes it impossible for her to get pregnant. Fixing your male pet prevents him from impregnating a female. You won’t have to worry about surprise litters when you least expect them.

Benefits of Spaying or Neutering Your Pet

There are health and behavioral benefits to fixing your pet.

First, you can spare yourself the pain of enduring undesirable behaviors associated with the heat process, such as your cat howling through the night or urinating indoors. Neutering your male dog eliminates his desire to roam in search of a mate. You won't have to worry about your pup getting lost, hit by a car, or getting hurt fighting with other dogs while he is looking. Neutering your pup can also minimize aggressive tendencies.

Healthwise, fixing your pet helps protect him or her from reproductive infections and tumors that can impair his or her health. This gives your pet a better chance to live a longer, healthier life.

Fixing your pet can also help your local community by reducing the number of homeless pets in animal shelters or on the streets. Pet homelessness is a major problem in many parts of the country, prompting shelters to put down dogs or cats that aren't adopted.
