Benefits of Spaying & Neutering

There are many reason to spay and neauter your pet, here are a few reasons why I feel it is a good idea.

 

Benefits of Neutering: 

  • Reduces or eliminates risk of spraying and marking

  • Less desire to roam, therefore less likely to be injured in fights or auto accidents

  • Risk of testicular cancer is eliminated, and decreases incidence of prostate disease

  • Reduces number of unwanted cats/kittens/dogs/puppies

  • Decreases aggressive behavior, including dog bites

 

 

Benefits of Spaying:

  • No heat cycles, therefore males will not be attracted

  • Less desire to roam

  • Risk of mammary gland tumors, ovarian and/or uterine cancer is reduced or eliminated

  • Reduces number of unwanted cats/kittens/dogs/puppies

With that said, be responsible.  I do not believe in spaying a dog PRIOR to its first heat cycle.  I feel that the female reproductive system should remain INTACT through the female's first heat cycle.  There are many hormones that females need in order to remain balanced.  Once a female is through her first heat, it would be wise to have her spayed soon after to make less worry over an unwanted pregnancy.
