Benefits of Spaying/Neutering

  • Spayed/neutered pets live longer.*
  • Spaying females helps prevent uterine infections, which are often fatal, and breast tumors.
  • Neutering a male prevents testicular cancer and reduces the likelihood of prostate and pancreatic cancers.
  • Your pet will be less likely to roam away from home to find a mate.
  • Your male dog may bark less and exhibit less mounting behavior.
  • Neutered male pets are less likely to behave aggressively.
  • Altered pets are less likely to mark their territory by spraying strong-smelling urine in your home.
  • Spaying/neutering helps reduce the number of unwanted dogs and cats in animal shelters.

*An analysis of 2.2 million dogs and 460,000 cats concluded that neutered male dogs lived 18% longer and spayed female dogs lived 23% longer. Spayed female cats in the study lived 39% longer and neutered male cats lived 62% longer.
