Any veterinarian will almost always tell you that spaying or neutering your pet early on in life is a good idea. But why is that? Here, your animal hospital Derby tells you why this simple procedure has such a big impact on your pet.
It benefits your pet’s health.
Pets who have had the procedure done are at virtually no risk for genital cancer, and other cancers like prostate and breast cancer are far less likely. Urinary tract infections and other more common health problems occur far less often, too. That alone is enough of a reason to have the surgery done!
It improves your pet’s behavior.
Spaying or neutering your pet doesn’t solve every behavior problem, but it tends to make pets behave better. Help curb or eliminate issues like house soiling, urine spraying, aggression, loud vocalizations, escape attempts, chewing, digging, scratching, and more by having the procedure performed.
It helps the homeless pet population.
When your pet is allowed to breed unchecked, it contributes to the already out-of-control homeless pet population. Don’t be a part of the problem—have your pet spayed or neutered early on in life for the greater good.
