What Are Spay and Neuter?
Spay and neuter procedures are the surgical removal of the reproductive parts of animals. Spaying is the surgical removal of female reproductive parts, such as the ovaries and uterus. Neutering is the surgical removal of male reproductive organs.
Benefits of Spay and Neuter
Spaying or neutering your cat or dog is the best way to prevent unwanted pregnancies and litters. Overpopulation in animal shelters is an issue and getting your pet neutered or spayed can help reduce the overpopulation of unwanted animals.
Other benefits of spaying or neutering your cat or dog include a lower chance of your pet having reproductive related health issues and improved behaviors. Spaying your female pet will avoid unplanned pregnancies. You won't have to experience your pet going into heat, which includes undesirable behaviors such as pacing, yowling, or crying. You also won't have to worry about your female pet getting uterine infections, breast cancer, and other forms of reproductive cancer.
Benefits of having your male pet neutered include no unwanted pregnancies, reduced aggressive behaviors, and the reduction and elimination of certain health issues. You won't have to worry about your pet wandering off trying to find a mate. Undesirable behaviors such as spraying, aggression, and mounting furniture will be reduced or eliminated once your pet is neutered. Health benefits for your pet include reduced rates of prostate cancer and testicular cancer.
