The Health Benefits of Spaying and Neutering Your Pets

Spaying and neutering your pets can have many health benefits, including reducing your pet's risk of cancer and behavioral problems. The procedures also prevent unwanted litters which reduces the strain on animal shelters.

Spaying may mean longer, healthier lives for your female pets. It can help prevents uterine infections and significantly decrease the incidence of breast tumors. Spaying also stops your female pet from going into heat, which causes her to yowl and urinate while she tries to attract mates.

Neutering stops testicular cancer and prostate problems in male pets. Unneutered dogs and cats are likelier to mark their territory by urinating all over the house. Also, unneutered dogs will go to great lengths to find a mate, including escaping from the home and getting into fights.
