We want to let you know that spay & neuter surgery is one of those surgeries that improve the health of your pet and reduces various health complications. To help ease your mind about spay & neuter surgery, read the benefits of it.
Medical Benefits That Is Associated with Spay & Neuter Surgery
- A Longer, Healthier Life: As pets get older, a health problem is more likely to arise. Tumors, cancers, and infections are just a few health issues that can impede your pet’s health. By spaying or neutering your animal, the chance of suffering from these problems are significantly reduced or even eliminated, giving your animal a longer and healthier life.
- Stops The Heat Cycle: Heat cycles of pets vary, but when they do go into heat, they will do anything to get the opposite gender their attention. Pets in heat will yowl and urinate more (possibly in the house), which can last days or weeks. Spay & neuter surgery stops the heat cycle and these habits.
- Better Behaved and Less Roaming: It is shown that pets who had spay & neuter surgery are less likely to escape the house and roam away to find a mate. Additionally, pets are reported to behave less aggressively to other pets.
- Cost-Effective: Spay & neuter surgery is much less expensive than having and providing care for a litter and treating an ailment or injury.
In addition to these benefits, spaying or neutering your pet can also help reduce the pet population. Many pets in shelters are waiting for their forever homes, and you give these pets a chance to go to one if you spay or neuter your animal.
