Benefits of Spaying & Neutering

Many pet owners are reluctant to spay or neuter their animal companions. This is due to a misguided belief that it harms the pet’s quality of life. Extensive research indicates that quite the opposite is true: Spaying and neutering offers many benefits to animals.

Spaying and neutering increases your pet’s chance of a longer and healthier life. Altered dogs enjoy an increased lifespan of up to three years and cats live from three to five years longer. Altered animals have low or no risk of mammary gland tumors and cancer, prostate cancer, perianal tumors, pyometria, or uterine, ovarian, and testicular cancers.

Spaying and neutering helps a dog or cat become a better pet by reducing the urge to roam, while decreasing the risk of contracting diseases or getting hurt as they roam.

Benefits of Spaying Female Dogs & Cats

  • No heat cycles, therefore males will not be attracted
  • Less desire to roam
  • Risk of mammary gland tumors and ovarian or uterine cancer is reduced or eliminated, especially if done before the first heat cycle
  • Reduces number of unwanted animals
  • Helps dogs and cats live longer, healthier lives

Benefits of Neutering Male Dogs & Cats

  • Reduces or eliminates risk of spraying and marking
  • Less desire to roam, minimizing injuries in fights or auto accidents
  • Risk of testicular cancer is eliminated
  • Decreases incidence of prostate disease
  • Reduces number of unwanted animals
  • Decreases aggressive behavior, including dog bites
  • Helps dogs and cats live longer, healthier lives

Your community also benefits because unwanted animals are becoming a real concern. Stray animals can become a public nuisance, soiling and damaging property, frightening people, creating disturbances, causing automobile accidents, and sometimes killing livestock or other pets. In addition, caring for and euthanizing stray and unwanted animals costs taxpayers thousands of dollars every year.

If you are not a professional breeder, we recommend spaying and neutering your pets.
