Spay/Neuter Your Dog

Spaying or neutering is one of the most important things you can do for your pet. There are many health, behavioral and other benefits to having your pet sterilized such as:

  • Health benefits. Spaying females before their first heat greatly reduces their chances of developing mammary, ovarian or uterine cancers and uterine infections. Neutering male pets virtually eliminates the risk of testicular tumors or prostate problems.
  • Preventing unwanted behaviors. Sterilized male dogs are less likely to fight, mark their territory, or show other aggressive behaviors. Pets are also less likely to slip out of the house or yard to find mates.
  • Positive effects on your pet’s personality. Sterilized animals tend to be better socialized and more affectionate. All of their attention will be focused on you, rather than on the urge to breed.
  • Helping control pet overpopulation. The companion animal population grows more rapidly than the human population, so there are not enough good homes.
