Spay Services for Dogs and Cats
Spaying female cats and dogs comes with many benefits. Millions of unwanted cats and dogs go without homes or are euthanized every year. Having your dog or cat spayed reduces the chance of your pet having an unexpected litter that you become responsible for finding homes for. Additionally, it protects them from potential health problems as they age, including cancers such as uterine, ovarian, and breast cancer. Having your dog or cat spayed before the first heat cycle significantly reduces these risks. A spayed cat or dog will also not show some of the undesirable behaviors associated with the heat cycle.
Neuter Services for Dogs and Cats
Male dogs and cats that are neutered receive similar benefits to spayed females. The procedure will play its role in reducing the contribution to overpopulated puppy and kitten litters. Neutered animals are also less of a risk for health issues such as testicular cancer and prostate disease. Neutering has also been shown to lessen a dog’s desire to roam and can decrease aggressive behavior in some.
