Benefits of Spay and Neuter

Spaying or neutering your pet eliminates or reduces a wide variety of health problems that can be very difficult and expensive to treat, such as many types of cancer, tumors, and other serious health complications. Spayed and neutered animals no longer feel the need to roam seeking a mate, so they have less chance of being involved in fights or traumatic injuries. Also, infections, abscesses, diseases such as feline leukemia virus and feline AIDS (transmitted by fighting), and other contagious diseases are greatly reduced in altered cats, which helps avoid expensive vet bills while extending their lifespan.

After euthanasia, cancer is the number-one killer of cats and dogs. Yet a one-time surgery can prevent most of these deaths. I can’t tell you how many times devastated owners have said to me, “Nobody ever told me about the health risks of not spaying or neutering my pet.”

Spaying or neutering your cat or dog leads to better health, longer life, peace of mind, and foolproof birth control that lasts a lifetime. The average life span of an altered pet is 40% longer than one that’s not spayed or neutered, and the overall effects of spaying or neutering will positively influence your pet’s behavior. This simple procedure will save you and your pet from unnecessary suffering and unexpected financial burdens. No need to hesitate, ponder, or ask a friend—just do it!

Spaying will 100%  prevent your pets from developing:

  • Ovarian cancer
  • Uterine cancer
  • Uterine infections
  • Uterine torsion and uterine prolapsed
  • False pregnancies
  • Difficult pregnancies
  • Cystic endometrial hyperplasia
  • Chronic endometritis
  • Cystic ovaries and hyperestrogenism

And it will greatly reduce the chance of your pet developing:

  • Vaginal hyperplasia and prolapse
  • Transmissible venereal sarcoma
  • Skin conditions
  • Cervical cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Mastitis

Dogs and cats that are neutered live an average of 40% longer than dogs and cats that aren’t neutered. Statistically, male neutered dogs and cats are just plain healthier. Many of the conditions that develop in unaltered dogs and cats significantly shorten their life span.

Neutering greatly decreases or completely eliminates certain health problems such as:

  • Testicular cancer 100%
  • Testicular torsion100%
  • Rectal cancer
  • Benign prostatic hyperplasia
  • Prostatic abscess
  • Prostatic cancer
  • Epididymitis (infection of the epididymis)100%
  • A perineal hernia (abdominal organs bulging out of rectum)
  • An inguinal hernia with potential organ strangulation
  • Perianal gland adenomas
  • Orchitis (infection of the testicles)100%
