Why It's Important to Spay and Neuter Your Pets
There are a number of good reasons to spay or neuter your dogs and cats. Essentially, though, they all boil down to the same ideas: compassion and responsibility. Spaying and neutering are crucial for dog and cat population control. But these procedures serve more good than preventing a larger population of animals than can be adequately cared for. Spaying and neutering also prevent certain infections, tumors, and diseases. Additionally, male dogs and cats are often less aggressive and better behaved after they are neutered. For a healthier, more easygoing pet and fewer animals potentially ending up as strays or subject to euthanasia in overcrowded shelters, spaying and neutering are the right choices.
Dogs are traditionally spayed or neutered when they are between 6 to 9 months old. Kittens undergo these procedures at as young as 8 weeks. We will evaluate your pets to ensure their proper health and readiness prior to performing any procedure. While older pets can also receive these operations, they are at higher risk of complications and infection. For optimal results and lower risk, it’s best to spay and neuter your pets when they are young.
