3 Reasons to Spay & Neuter your Pets
Spaying or neutering your pet does far more than simply prevent unwanted puppies and kittens, it provides your pet with some lasting health benefits that will prolong your time together and ensure he or she stays safely at home. Your Derby or Wichita veterinarian can spay or neuter your pet in a single visit; once this is complete, your pet is protected for a lifetime.
Some common forms of cancer begin in the reproductive tract. When a dog or cat is spayed or neutered, those organs are removed, so there is no possibility of developing disease in this area.
Prevent Unwanted Pregnancies
While pets can have successful and worry-free pregnancies, having a litter does increase your pet's risk of illness or injury. You'll also have to find a loving home for quite a few kittens or puppies, depending on your pet's breed. Spaying and neutering prevents unwanted stray animals and takes some of the burden off of our already busy shelters.
From preventing some common diseases to stopping wandering and aggressive behavior, spaying or neutering your pets helps keep them healthy and safely at home. If it is time for your pet to be spayed or neutered, get in touch. Our caring team, both in Wichita or Derby KS, is ready to help you provide your pet with this lasting form of protection.
Stop Wandering and Aggression
A male dog that is not neutered, could be at a higher risk of escaping your yard or home and roaming the streets in search of a female in heat. Dogs can and do travel long distances to find females in heat, and this traveling exposes him to a much higher risk of injury. Your male dog or cat could also be more aggressive to other animals if he is not neutered, and could even mark his territory indoors or on your belongings. Neutering curbs all of these unwanted behaviors and reduces your pet's risk of harm, as well.
