Spay and neuter: why is it important to “fix” your pet?
Spay/neuter is one of the greatest gifts you can provide your pet, your family and your community. These routine medical procedures not only reduce the number of unwanted animals ending up in the streets, but they may also prevent medical and behavioral problems from developing in a cat or dog, allowing your pet to lead a longer, healthier and happier life.
Spaying or neutering is unlikely to change a pet's temperament, basic personality or levels of playfulness and general activity. However, it can reduce the incidence of some behavioral issues, especially sexual behaviors, such as mounting, howling and the urge to roam. And despite what some believe, pets show no signs of "missing" mating or breeding.
The word "spay" refers to the sterilization of female pets. The term "neuter," while more commonly used to refer to the castration of male pets, can be used to describe the sterilization of either female or male pets through the removal of reproductive organs.
Sterilization directly impacts the number of animals who end up as homeless pets in the street. By getting your pet fixed, together we can Save Them All.
