Is Your Pet Spayed or Neutered? Why You Should Make That Appointment Today

Spaying or neutering your pet has a lot of advantages beyond just preventing unwanted pregnancies. When you spay or neuter your pet, you reduce the risk of certain illnesses, diseases, and cancers and curb behavioral problems. If your pet isn’t yet spayed or neutered, take a look at some of the reasons you should call your veterinarian today to make the appointment.

Increase Your Pet’s Lifespan

Spaying your pet can prevent uterine infections and breast cancer. Neutering your pet can prevent testicular cancer. When you spay or neuter your pet, you also reduce their risk of other injuries and diseases they might encounter while trying to find a mate. 

Prevent Fights & Roaming

When a pet isn’t spayed or neutered, they will be less likely to try to escape your home in search of a mate. Some pets can wander for miles, during which time they are at risk of being hit by a car, taken in by a new owner, taken to an animal shelter, or getting into fights with other animals. Spaying or neutering your pet reduces their desire to roam and their risk of injuries and illnesses from other animals.

Avoid Behavioral Problems

Female cats in heat will yowl constantly and urinate all over the house. Female dogs in heat also exhibit behavioral issues and might make messes in the house. Male dogs also mark their territory by urinating inside and outside the house. Neutering your dog can prevent these behavioral problems and also prevent your dog from trying to mount or hump humans, other animals, and inanimate objects. Neutering can also reduce aggression. 

If your pet isn’t yet spayed or neutered, you can extend their lifespan and ensure they live a happy, healthy life by making an appointment for them to get spayed or neutered. Call your veterinarian today to discuss your options.
