Spay Neuter FAQs

Why should you spay or neuter YOUR pets?



Spaying your female pets means:

  • No heat cycles, therefore males will not be attracted
  • Less desire to roam
  • Risk of mammary gland tumors, ovarian and/or uterine cancer is reduced or eliminated, especially if done before the first heat cycle
  • Reduced number of unwanted cats/kittens/dogs/puppies
  • Dogs and cats live longer, healthier lives


Neutering your male pet means:

  • Reduced or eliminated risk of spraying and marking
  • Less desire to roam, therefore less likely to be injured in fights or auto accidents
  • Risk of testicular cancer is eliminated, and decreased incidence of prostate disease
  • Reduced number of unwanted cats/kittens/dogs/puppies
  • Decreased aggressive behavior, including dog bites
  • Dogs and cats live longer, healthier lives
