Why Spay/Neuter your pets?

Spaying and neutering is good for your pet:

  • Helps dogs and cats live longer, healthier lives.

  • Can eliminate or reduce the incidence of a number of health problems that can be very difficult and expensive to treat.

  • Spaying eliminates the possibility of uterine or ovarian cancer and greatly reduces the incidence of breast cancer, particularly when your pet is spayed before her first estrous cycle.

  • Neutering eliminates testicular cancer and decreases the incidence of prostate disease.

Spaying and neutering is good for you:

  • Makes pets better, more affectionate companions.

  • Neutering makes them less likely to spray and mark territory.

  • Spaying a dog or cat eliminates her heat cycle. Female cats in heat can cry incessantly, show nervous behavior, and attract unwanted male animals.

  • Unsterilized animals often exhibit more behavior and temperament problems.

  • Neutering makes pets less likely to roam, run away, or get into fights.
