Spay & Neuter
Spaying and neutering has a number of benefits to your pet. Besides reducing the pet overpopulation problem. Research studies have shown that a spayed or neutered pet lives an average of 2 years longer than their unspayed or unneutered counterparts.
Once your dog has gone through a single heat cycle, her chances for developing cancerous mammary masses increase by 98%. Spaying her before her first heat eliminates this possibility.
In layman’s terms, this is an infected uterus. This is a very serious condition that will affect almost all unsprayed females over the age of five. Pyometra can and will result in death if not taken care of immediately – the cure is surgical removal of the infected uterus, which is often 2-3 times more expensive that a routine spay.
C-section for difficult birth
Not all pregnancies end with a happy picture, some females need emergency care while delivering. C-sections can cost thousands of dollars at emergency facilities, and failing to assist the mother can often lead to death of the mother and pups.
95% of dogs hit by cars are unspayed or unneutered. When in heat, a female dog will often run away from her home in search of a mate. In addition, many dogs will get into fights or get injured while breeding.
Most of the deadly viruses cats get are spread through saliva or other bodily fluids.
Spraying and Inappropriate Urination
Unspayed females advertise their condition by urinating in different areas outside of the litterbox, which can include spraying on vertical surfaces to mark their territory.
Female cats in heat burn a lot of calories and often lose weight or develop other metabolic disorders.
Even well-behaved strictly indoor cats will find ways to get out of the house when in heat, putting them at risk for being attacked by other animals or hit by cars.
Neutering Male Dogs and Cats Prevents:
A neutered male does not develop testicular cancer and male dogs are far less prone too developing prostate or rectal cancer if neutered, neutered males do not develop preianal hernias.
Unneutered males (both canine and feline) tend to be more aggressive with other animals and people. Unneutered males are also very prone to urinating or spraying (cats) inappropriately. Thousands of dogs and casts get relinquished to shelters every year for inappropriate behaviors like these.
Disease and Injury
Unneutered males will fight with each other, causing injury and spreading disease(cats). Unneutered males are also far more likely to be hit by a care than neutered males.
