Spaying or neutering your dog or cat provides many health benefits to your pet and also to the whole family — a pets that are spayed or neutered are easier to live with. As you’ve probably seen and heard, female dogs left un-spayed yowl and often urinate just about anywhere when they’re in heat. Male dogs in the grip of the mating urge can be obnoxious, given to roaming and are usually more excitable than their neutered neighbors, often favoring your guests with their unwanted attentions
There are proven wellness reasons for having your dog, cat or other pet spayed or neutered. Female pets who are spayed tend to live longer—spaying helps prevent breast cancer and stave off intrauterine infections. Neutering your male pet before he’s six months helps prevent testicular cancer
Are you planning on having a new pet? Now’s the time to consider whether or not to spay or neuter that new family member. It’s a very common surgical procedure that can increase your pet’s wellness while lessening Phoenix’s stray animal population.
Male pets are often neutered by having their testicles removed, ideally before they’re more than six months old. Besides leaving them unable to reproduce, neutering improves their wellness by reducing the chance they’ll contract testicular cancers. It also lessens the urge to wander from home and curtails wandering and obnoxious breeding behavior. An alternate but much recommended procedure for your male pet is a vasectomy, during which the vans deferens is removed. Hormone production is thus retained, adding to wellness, while the ability to reproduce is neutralized.
