Lake Cable Animal Hospital - Spay/Neuter
Spaying or neutering your dog or cat will vastly improve your pets behavior and keep them close to home.
What does it mean to spay my pet?
Spaying is removing the ovaries and uterus of a female pet.
Why should I spay or neuter my pet?
1. Your female pet will live a longer / healthier life. Spaying helps prevent uterine infections and breast cancer, which is fatal in about 50 percent of dogs and 90 percent of cats. Spaying your pet before her first heat offers the best protection from these diseases.
2. Neutering provides major health benefits for your male. Besides preventing unwinding litters, neutering your male companion prevents testicular cancer, if done before six months of age.
3. Your spayed female won’t go into heat. Female felines usually go into heat four to five days every three weeks during breeding season. In an effort to advertise for their mates, they will yowl and urinate more often – sometimes all over the house!
4. Your neutered male will be much better behaved. Neutered cats and dogs focus their attention on human families. Many aggression problems can be avoided by early neutering.
Spaying and neutering your dogs and cats helps prevent overpopulation. Every year, millions of cats and dogs of all ages and breeds are euthanized or suffer as strays. These high numbers are the result of unplanned litters that could have been prevented by spaying or neutering.
