The importance of spaying/neutering your pet

With humane societies and shelters overwhelmed with homeless and abandoned animals, spaying and neutering your pets is an important way in which you can become part of the solution to the overpopulation problem.

Benefits of having your pet spayed/neutered:

  • It reduces population of unwanted cats and dogs.
  • Territorial marking in the house, if it occurs, is reduced by half.
  • Episodes of aggression towards other cats/dogs should cease.
  • Roaming (running away from home) is reduced in about 90% of cases.

The health effect of having your pet spayed/neutered are quite significant as well:

  • Spaying eliminates heat cycles in females and ensures that the problems associated with heat cycles are avoided.
  • With neutering, many prostatic diseases are greatly reduced, as is the risk of prostatic cancer.
