SPAY & NEUTER
Whether you are a new or future pet owner, you must understand the importance of spaying and neutering your pet. Spaying a female pet is a veterinary operation that requires little time in the hospital and has long-term health benefits. Male pets can be neutered by removing their reproductive organs, which improves their behavior and prevents them from fleeing. You can be assured that neutering or spaying your pet has no effect on their personality or character.
Female pets who are spayed live longer and healthier lives, protected from uterine infections and breast tumors. It is recommended that your pet be spayed before her first heat, since this will provide better protection from certain infections. The risk of testicular cancer and prostate abnormalities are minimized in male pets who are neutered.
- Female pets can be spayed to prevent them from going into heat. They usually go into heat every three weeks. In order to attract a mate, they howl and urinate more frequently than usual (at times even within the house) while they are in heat.
- Unneutered male pets, unlike neutered pets, are more inclined to try to run out of the house frequently, in clever ways. When they’re outside, they’re more likely to be injured in traffic or get into fights with other animals.
- Male dogs who have been neutered have better behavior. Unneutered male pets, on the other hand, are aggressive and are more prone to mark their territory by urinating inside the house, leaving a strong stench. By neutering your male pets, you may easily solve this problem.
When Must You Spay Or Neuter Your Pet?
For dogs: We recommend neutering them at the age of six months, or before their first heat. Although older dogs can be neutered, they are at a higher risk of postoperative complications, especially if they are overweight or have other health problems.
For Cats: Kittens can be sterilised as early as eight weeks of age. They are usually spayed or neutered before adoption to limit the chances of unplanned pregnancies and urine-spraying behavior.
