The Benefits of Neutering Your Pet


Have you ever felt sad seeing dogs in the pound and getting euthanized? 

Or maybe just randomly see stray dogs on the street and wonder what their story is? 

One of the main reasons there are so many homeless animals is because there hasn't been enough spaying and neutering. When you neuter your dog, you are not only helping to reduce the homeless animal population, but you are also doing something great for your dog's health. 


Benefits of Neutering Your Pets

Reduce the number of animals that are euthanized each year.

There is nothing more heartbreaking than seeing these innocent dogs not only losing the chance of having a great home but also losing a life.  

In the United States alone, it is estimated that three to four million dogs are euthanized each year. Most of these animals are euthanized simply because there aren't enough homes for all of them. 

By spaying or neutering your pet, you can help reduce the number of animals that are euthanized each year. 

It keeps them healthy. 

Neutered pets are much less likely to develop cancer or other health problems. Breast cancer is drastically reduced in female pets who have been spayed or neutered, thanks to this simple yet effective procedure. Meanwhile, prostate cancer is less common in male dogs and cats that have been neutered.

They behave better. 

Pets who have been neutered are generally calmer and less aggressive than unneutered pets. They will no longer be on the lookout for a dog in heat, as their desire to mate has been reduced.  

No unwanted pregnancies or litters of pups or kittens. 

If you have a female pet, the last thing you want is for her to have an unwanted pregnancy. Not only will she have to go through the hassle and stress of giving birth, but you will also be left with a litter of puppies or kittens that you may not be able to find good homes for. 

By spaying your pets, you can avoid all this drama and simply enjoy having a healthy and well-behaved pet.
