Canine & Feline Spay


WHY SPAY?
1.) SPAYING your pet prevents more unwanted puppies and kittens from being born.
2.) SPAYING your pet eliminates estrous or "heat" periods; eliminates frantic pacing and crying by the female while in heat (cats are especially vocal at that time).
3.) SPAYING your pet reduces the risk of developing mammary cancer (breast cancer), ovarian cancer, as well as uterine cancer.
4.) SPAYING your pet reduces the risk of developing a uterine infection called pyometra, which if untreated can be life-threatening.
5.) SPAYING your pet eliminates sexual frustration; decreasing the desire to roam in search of a mate.

MYTHS
1.) SPAYING WILL MAKE MY PET FAT. Spaying your pet will not make her fat or lazy. Too much food and not enough exercise are the main causes of obesity.
2.)SHE SHOULD HAVE ONE LITTER FIRST. It is actually better for her NOT to have a litter or a heat period before being spayed. Cats and dogs can be spayed as early as 8 weeks of age and 2 pounds or more in weight.
3.)SPAYING WILL HURT HER. Spaying is a safe and relatively painless operation done by a licensed veterinarian.
4.) I WILL FIND HOMES FOR MY PUPPIES AND KITTENS. You may be able to place your puppies and kittens but are they good homes? Right now in the United States 15 million animals are being euthanized each year

4.) NEUTERING your pet reduces the risk of developing prostate problems and testicular tumors later in life.
