Why Spay or Neuter?

For your pet's health, and for your peace of mind.

 

To spay or not to spay, that is the question. 

 

Spaying or neutering your animal helps control the pet population, and in some cases, improves the health of your pet.  Spaying and neutering can help reduce the chance of mammary tumours, ovarian cancer, testicular cancer and prostate cancer.  It can also help reduce undesirable behaviours like aggression, humping and urine marking, and can reduce the desire to roam.  Studies have shown that the majority of pets who get hit by a car were not spayed or neutered and were animals who roam.

And it helps reduce the tragic number of unwanted pets that have to be euthanized every year.  

Age

 

The best time to spay or neuter your animal is usually between 6 -18 months.  Please check with your veterinarian about the ideal time to spay or neuter your pet.
