The decision to spay or neuter your pet is one of the most important decisions you will make as a pet owner. Our veterinarians perform spay and neuter procedures at West Boca Veterinary Center in Boca Raton. Let’s look at why you should spay or neuter your pet.
Reducing the Pet Population
Spaying and neutering help control the pet population to ensure there are enough homes for each animal. Unfortunately, many tax dollars are spent each year on unwanted and abandoned pets that end up in shelters. Many of these animals will eventually become euthanized if there is no place for them to go.
Spayed and neutered pets have less chance of developing certain types of cancers. For example, female pets are less likely to develop uterine cancers or cancer of the reproductive system. Males are also less prone to testicular cancer by having the procedure completed.
Spay and Neuter Improves Behavior
Animals that are not spayed or neutered are more aggressive and prone to marking their territory with urine. Animals that are spayed and neutered have a stronger bond with their owners. Undesired behaviors will be drastically reduced if not eliminated. Your pet is also less likely to stray from home once he or she has the procedure performed.
You will save money by not having to take care of the additional litter. You could also prevent your pets from getting injured since they will not stray from your home.
