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.
