Being a responsible animal owner means taking precautions to prevent your pet from contributing to the already overwhelming number of unwanted pets in shelters. It also means doing everything you can to prevent illness and let your companion enjoy a healthy, happy life. Having your pet spayed or neutered eliminates the possibility of reproduction and offers a wide range of health and behavioral benefits. 

Here at Center Veterinary Clinic, we offer spay and neuter services in Novato and encourage these procedures for the majority of our patients.

Benefits of Spaying and Neutering

Having your pet spayed or neutered prevents unwanted litters. It also lowers or even eliminates the risk of certain diseases. Spaying a female companion animal removes the risk of uterine and ovarian cancer, while neutering prevents testicular cancer in males. 

Spaying and neutering also lower the risk of Pyometra, diabetes, and mammary tumors. In addition, these routine procedures commonly reduce or eliminate problematic behaviors, like urine spraying, howling, and roaming in search of a mate. Sometimes, neutering even eases aggression.
