Four Reasons to Spay and Neuter Your Pets

As a pet owner, neutering or spaying your pet is one of the most loving actions you can take. Whether you own a dog, cat or rabbit, consider the advantages of a spay and neuter program at your local animal clinic.

Spay and Neuter to End Pet Homelessness

Humane Society data estimates that animal shelters house six to eight million homeless pets every year. Up to 2.7 million of those helpless animals are euthanized. Spay and neuter your pets as you do your part to reduce pet homelessness.

Protect Your Pet's Health

Your pet is likely to live a longer life if it is spayed or neutered. That surgery, performed in a pet hospital, prevents your pets from roaming into traffic or getting into deadly fights. It also reduces the chances that your female pets will develop uterine cancer or pyrometra, a fatal uterine infection, and that your male pets will develop testicular or prostate cancer. Protect your pet's health when you take it to be fixed.

Reduce Bad Behavior

You definitely do not want your pet marking his territory or peeing all over the house. Fixed cats are 90 percent less likely to urine-mark than unfixed cats, and fixed dogs are less likely to urine-mark too. Make an appointment at our animal clinic to have your pets spayed and neutered to see a shift in focus and improvement in behavior.

Cut Pet Ownership Costs

Perhaps you are uncertain about spaying or neutering your pets because of the expense. Can you afford the medical bills when your pet needs emergency care after a fight with a bigger animal or during cancer treatment? Find a way to spay and neuter your pets at our pet hospital and save money.

Your life is much better because of your pet. Improve the life of your pet too when you have it spayed or neutered. In your opinion, what is the most beneficial part of fixing your pets?
