Spaying or neutering your pet is an important decision that can have significant benefits for your furry friend’s health and wellbeing. At Dunloggin Veterinary Hospital, we recommend spaying or neutering most pets, and we’re here to explain why.
Spaying or neutering your pet can help prevent certain types of cancers and other health issues. For female pets, spaying can greatly reduce the risk of developing mammary gland tumors, as well as other types of reproductive cancers. For male pets, neutering can help prevent testicular cancer and reduce the risk of prostate problems.
Spaying or neutering your pet can also help prevent certain behavioral issues. For male pets, neutering can help reduce aggression and territorial marking. For female pets, spaying can help prevent yowling and other behavior changes that occur during their heat cycle.
Perhaps most importantly, spaying or neutering your pet can help reduce the number of homeless pets in our community. Every year, thousands of cats and dogs are euthanized in animal shelters across the country because there are simply not enough homes for them. By spaying or neutering your pet, you are helping to prevent unplanned litters and reduce the number of homeless pets in need of loving homes.
