Why spay or neuter?

In addition to helping reduce pet overpopulation, when you spay or neuter (“fix”), you also protect your pet’s health. This ensures they can enjoy a long and happy life with you and your family:

Neuter (Males)

  • Reduces the risk of territorial marking
  • Decreases undesired behaviors, like dog aggression
  • Eliminates risk of testicular cancer and lowers incidents of prostate disease
  • Reduces the desire to roam, which could result in injury by motorists or other animals

Spay (Females)

  • No heat cycles, which reduces an intact male’s attraction to your lovely girl
  • Reduces the desire to roam
  • Decreases the risk of mammary gland tumors, and ovarian, and uterine cancers—especially if done before the first heat cycle
