Why You Need to Spay/Neuter Your Pet

Is your dog or cat spayed/neutered? If you haven’t done it yet, we highly encourage you to come visit us and take care of this procedure. There are a variety of benefits to spay or neuter your animal. The first is obvious, to help control the pet population. But in addition, this procedure will also benefit your pet’s health. Unaltered pets have an increased risk of medical issues such as:”

Male dogs and cats have an increased chance of prostate disease and cancer.

Female dogs have an increased chance of mammary tumors, uterine and ovarian cancers and a uterine infection known as pyometria. Females spayed before the first heat cycle (which occurs at approximately 6 months) significantly reduce the chance of these hormone related diseases.

Male dogs and cats tend to roam more often than those that are unaltered.

Male cats tend to spray and mark their territory causing unwanted odors.

Training can become more difficult in male dogs.


This surgery is quite painless for dogs and cats, and will make them healthier for years to come. Also, you won’t come home to an unexpected litter of kittens! Schedule an appointment today to get your dog or cat spayed or neutered.
