There are many benefits to having your pet spayed or neutered - your pet will be healthier, live longer, be easier to care for, and have fewer behavior issues. Early spaying of female dogs and cats can help protect them from some serious health problems later in life, such as potentially life threatening uterine infections and breast cancer. Neutering your male pet can also lessen their risk of developing benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate gland) and testicular cancer.
Spaying or neutering your pet has no effect on their intelligence or ability to learn, play, work or hunt. In fact, spaying or neutering your pet has shown to have positive effects on their behavior.

When Should I Spay or Neuter My Pet?
Consult us about the most appropriate time to spay or neuter your pet. Factors such as breed, age and physical condition will help determine when it is best to spay or neuter. Keep in mind that, contrary to popular belief, it may NOT be best to wait until your female dog or cat has gone through her first heat cycle.
