Spay-Neuter Clinic

If you’re thinking about spaying or neutering your pet, let me tell you, it’s a big deal! It can affect your furry friend’s health and your wallet, too. Here’s what you need to know:

Health and Longevity: Did you know that spayed or neutered dogs and cats tend to live longer? Altered male dogs live 13.8% longer, and spayed female dogs live 26.3% longer. For cats, it’s even more significant: spayed females live 39% longer, and neutered males live 62% longer. And that’s because they have a reduced risk of certain cancers that can shorten their lifespan.

– Behavioral Benefits: Altered pets are less likely to run away, which means they’re less likely to get into fights, accidents, or infections. For male pets, neutering eliminates the risk of testicular cancer and prevents benign prostatic hyperplasia.

Myth Busting: Some studies have raised concerns about orthopedic conditions and cancers in altered dogs, but these findings mainly apply to giant breeds. It’s important to remember that retrospective studies can’t definitively establish causality, and clinically significant differences are essential to consider.

– Save Lives: By spaying or neutering your pet, you’re doing your bit to prevent the birth of unwanted animals. And it’s an easy way to help homeless pets find a better life. So, let’s do our part and spread the word!
