There are many responsibilities as a pet owner spanning from food and shelter to the health and wellbeing of your pet. Have you considered neutering or spaying your fur?
Male animals are neutered, while female animals are spayed. When contemplating this the decision, consider:
Approximately 400 million dogs in the world are stray
Neutering or spaying helps to stem the possible increase in the unwanted rise of litters or euthanized due to an uncontrolled rise
Experts report that spaying or neutering your pet helps prevent uterine and breast cancer which affects 50 percent of dogs and 90 percent of cats. If performed before 6 months, a male dogs’ risk of reproductive cancer decreases.
Neutering and spaying may have an impact on the behavior of your pet. Particularly, pet owners report that their pets are less aggressive post-procedure.
However, there is little to no scientific evidence that supports the link between this procedure and mood.
Regardless of your reasoning, it is important to speak with your local trusted vet before making this decision. Like human surgery, this procedure will entail healing time during which you’ll need to pay extra close attention to your pet to monitor their progress.
