Exactly What are the Benefits?

When you have your female pet spayed or your male pet neutered, you give them benefits they’re unlikely to receive any other way. Your pet receives perks that reduce their chances of becoming lost or injured. This in addition to medical perks that reduce the chances of your pet developing certain illnesses. Consequently, you’ll be increasing your pet’s quality of life as well as your own when disruptive behaviors are curtailed.

The benefits for female pets include:

  • Urine marking is reduced or eliminated altogether.
  • Roaming behavior is reduced or eliminated altogether.
  • The chances of ovarian and uterine cancers are reduced.
  • Incidences of mammary gland tumors are decreased.

The benefits for male pets include:

  • Urine marking is reduced or eliminated altogether.
  • Roaming behavior is reduced or eliminated altogether.
  • Mounting behavior is reduced or eliminated.
  • Any chance of developing testicular cancer is eliminated.
  • The chances of prostate problems are reduced.

What About When? A General Timeline to Keep in Mind

The chances of your pet developing mammary gland tumors are significantly reduced when spaying is done before their first heat cycle. As a loving pet owner, you'll value this perk because mammary gland tumors are often malignant. Additionally, many pets can be spayed or neutered as young as four months old. To give your pet maximum benefits, make sure they have this important procedure done by six months old. Schedule your pet’s visit today, so we can discuss more!
