Neuter Spay Why

Spaying is the term used to describe neutering a female animal, and neutering is the term used to describe the castration of a male animal. A neutered animal is either a male or female pet that has had a surgical procedure, performed by a veterinarian, and can no longer reproduce.

This decision is the responsibility of the pet owner. Spaying or neutering your pet is highly promoted by animal activists, vets and animal shelters. Neuter/spay your pet at an early age. Your dog and cat will live a happier, healthier, and longer life.

When you choose to spay or neuter your pet, you will help reduce pet overpopulation. Spaying or neutering your pet will also improve their health and life expectancy. Your pet could accidently “jump the fence” and you will end up with an unwanted pregnancy which will also lead to expensive veterinarians bills.

You should also consider the mess that comes with the female reproductive cycle. Spayed or neutered female pets will give you that peace of mind and will have less risk of associated health problems. Male dogs that have not been spayed or neutered have more urges to roam and fight indiscriminately.

Some animal shelters have to turn down unwanted pets. They are overpowered by the infinite number of animals arriving daily. Feral animals are a major concern in parts of the country. The local or regional humane societies and rescue groups may be a resource to explore for information on spaying or neutering programs available in your area.

There are US programs that provide low cost or free spay/neuter for pet dogs. US nationwide programs extend this service even more. They are listed by state and area code. By neutering or spaying your pet, you are taking your responsibilities in reducing unwanted breeding.

Dogs that have not been spayed or neutered have urges when the cycle draws near. They become irritable, anxious and may mark inside or outside your home with urine.  They may leave your property in search of breeding and could get killed by predators, other animals or get hit by a motor vehicle. The other scenario is a pregnant pet on your doorstep in a few days.

Pet overpopulation is everyone’s responsibility. Millions of tax dollars are spent in an effort to control unwanted, lost or abandoned pets. A lot of these animals are destroyed when they cannot be placed in homes. There is danger that these stray animals can carry diseases like rabies.

Some wildlife and livestock are killed or injured by these roaming animals that are in search of food. We must all get involved in the plea for helping decrease the excessive population of unwanted dogs.
