The Benefits of Spay/Neuter

Published:

Last Edited: September 13, 2007, 4:40 am

Spaying and neutering helps dogs and cats live longer and healthier lives.

Spaying or neutering can eliminate or reduce the incidence of a number of health problems that can be very difficult or expensive to treat.

Spaying eliminates the possibility of uterine or ovarian cancer, particularly when your pet is spayed before her first estorous cycle.

Neutering eliminates testicular cancer and reduces the incidence of prostate disease.

Spaying and neutering makes pets better, more affectionate companions.

Neutering cats makes them less likely to spray and mark territory.

Spaying a dog or cat eliminates her heat cycle. Estrus lasts an average of six to 12 days, often twice a year, in dogs and an average of six to seven days, three or more times a year, in cats.

Females in heat can incessantly ,show nervous behavior, and attract unwanted male animals.

Unsterilized animals show more aggressive behavior and temperment problems than do those who have been spayed or neutered.

Spaying and neutering makes animals less likely to bite.

Neutering makes pets less likely to roam the neigborhood, run away or get in fights.

"Females in heat can incessantly ,show nervous behavior, and attract unwanted male animals."

I used to hang out with a woman like that, in heat incessantly.   We stopped being friends because I didn't like having all those unwanted male animals around. :-)

That's funny and so true. There are some women that are in heat incessantly, just like felines or canines..

And they chase after or attract too many unwanted males. I believe that they need to be spayed as well. Ha ha.

Yes, and the males need to be neutered so they don't wander & stay close to home. LOL

I was thinking the same way for a long time about the males needing to be neutered as well.
They chase after the females too much.They are girl crazy. They need to leave the females in peace!
