Spay & Neuter

Spay & Neuter for Improved Pet Health

Spay & NeuterIf you do not plan on breeding your dog or cat, we recommend that you spay or neuter your pet.

The best time to do this is around 6 months of age. Spaying or neutering is important because of it:

  • Promotes health and lifespan
    This procedure is very safe and helps prevent cancer of the mammary and testicles, uterine infections, and prostate problems in animals
  • Helps control overpopulation
    Many pets are euthanized simply because there is no room in shelters and no one wants to adopt them; spaying and neutering is the single most important thing you can do to change this situation
  • Reduces many problem behaviors
    Such as urine marking, aggression, and wandering and roaming

An altered pet lives longer, and generally has fewer medical problems and a better temperament if this is done at an early age. Many unwanted animals are euthanized every year, so we encourage you to help reduce pet over-population.
