Science has proven that a spayed or neutered pet is healthier and happier than one that has not been spayed or neutered.
Benefits of spaying—A female dog or cat that has been spayed has no chance of developing uterine cancer and has a significantly reduced risk of mammary cancer. Spaying also removes any risk of death due to pregnancy or giving birth. Since spaying completely removes a female dog or cats reproductive organs she will no longer have a heat cycle which will remove the messy aspects of owning a breeding female and curb roaming, calling, or breeding behaviors.
Some large breeds of dog are prone to a condition called bloat. For these deep chested dogs we offer a procedure called gastropexy which is performed with the spay procedure to prevent this serious complication.
Benefits of neutering—For a male dog or cat neutering will reduce or remove territorial behaviors, aggression towards other dogs or cats, and wandering or running away. Male cats will be less likely to spray and male dogs will be much less likely to indulge in embarrassing behaviors. Since the testicles are completely removed during the neutering process the risk of testicular cancer is also removed.
