The Benefits of Spaying and Neutering
Pets who have been spayed or neutered are unable to produce litters. This cuts down on the homeless pet population and can lower euthanasia rates. Eliminating the possibility of reproducing isn’t the only benefit of these procedures, though.
Having your female dog or cat spayed significantly lowers her risk of breast cancer. It also eliminates the risk of uterine and ovarian cancer as well as a painful and life-threatening condition known as Pyometra. In males, neutering diminishes the risk of prostate problems and eliminates the risk of testicular cancer.
Spaying and neutering also lower the risk of diabetes as well as hormone-related health problems. These procedures can reduce or eliminate behaviors like aggression, yowling, howling, marking, and roaming, too.
