Spay or neuter surgery carries a one-time cost that is a small price to pay for the health of your pet and the prevention of more pets without a home.
Unsterilized animals often exhibit more behavior and temperament problems than do those who have been spayed or neutered.
Female dogs and cats are anesthetized and spayed by surgically removing the uterus and ovaries. Male dogs and cats are neutered by removing their testicles. All pets are discharged on the same day with several days of pain control and about a week of restricted activity.
Spaying eliminates the possibility of uterine or ovarian cancer and greatly reduces the incidence of breast cancer, particularly when your pet is spayed before her first heat cycle.
Neutering eliminates testicular cancer and decreases the incidence of prostate disease.
