Spay and Neuter Facts

 

ALL pets not intended for breeding should be surgically spayed/neutered for many important reasons. In addition to improved health and behavior resulting from this surgery, you will be doing your part to reduce unwanted pet population. Millions of unwanted animals are euthanized each year because good homes are limited and most pets simply cannot be adopted out.

OTHER FACTS

Your pet will NOT get fat or lazy because of this surgery.

Diet, exercise and heredity have much more influence on the weight and attitude of your pet.

Surgery is recommended by the time your pet is six months old, but it can be done at any age.

It is much easier on your pet to be spayed before going through a heat cycle due to the smaller size of reproductive tract.

Surgery is performed painlessly while your pet is under general anesthesia. Surgical risk is minimal. Most pets go home the same day. Post-surgical pain is managed with medication.

SPAYING OR NEUTERING YOUR PET IS A CARING AND HUMANE DECISION!
