Giving Your Pet Valuable Benefits

When you get your female pet spayed and your male pet neutered, you give them valuable benefits they are unlikely to get any other way. The likelihood for certain cancers are dramatically reduced in both males and females, after pet spay and neuter surgery. Behavioral issues, like roaming tendencies, can also reduce the chances of your pet becoming lost or injured.

Benefits your female pet will receive:

  • Reduction in the incidences of mammary gland tumors, ovarian,  and uterine cancers
  • The amount of unwanted litters is reduced, thereby reducing animal overpopulation
  • Urine spraying and roaming behaviors are reduced

Some benefits your male pet receives include:

  • The incidence of prostate disease is reduced.
  • The incidence of testicular cancer is eliminated.
  • Mounting behavior is reduced.
  • Urine spraying and roaming behaviors are reduced.

When to Spay and Neuter Your Pet?

Part of giving pets quality care includes providing comprehensive service. This includes advising our clients on the best time for pet spay and neuter surgery. For certain breeds and types of pets, we may advise you to wait until after your animal companion is fully grown and sexually mature. In others, like cats who go outdoors, we may advise you to get them spayed or neutered as young as four-months old.

Regardless of the decision you make for your animal companion, Lange Animal Hospital will be with you every step of the way. Schedule your pet’s wellness visit today, so we can discuss the best time for pet spay and neuter surgery.
