Why should I spay or neuter my pet?
Every day, animals die in animal shelters all over the country. There is a serious pet over-population problem in the United States. This is the most obvious reason, but it is not the only one.
A spayed female, is at a much lower risk for developing mammary tumors which can be life threatening. The risk of developing a serious, often fatal uterine infection called “pyometra”, or developing uterine or ovarian cancers is eliminated completely!
In a neutered male, the risk of developing prostate cancers is greatly reduced, and the risk for developing testicular cancers is completely eliminated! Neutering your male dog can reduce many unwanted behaviors such as humping, marking and roaming, and curb some aggressive behavior too, making your life and his easier.
In general, pets that are spayed or neutered, live longer, healthier lives!
