Is Spaying or Neutering Worth It?

You may think that the only benefit of spaying or neutering your animal is birth control, but it’s much more than that. It is one of the most important decisions you will ever make for your pet.

Humane Reproductive Control

It may come as a surprise to learn that many of the millions of stray dogs and cats in the United States are born to house pets. A staggeringly large amount of those animals are euthanized in shelters every year. The only permanent solution to maintaining the population and reducing the number of euthanized stray animals is to spay or neuter your pets.


Your Pet’s Health

Spaying or neutering does more for your animal than simply preventing pregnancies. There are significant health benefits that come with it. Unfixed animals have a stronger desire to wander — this increases the likelihood of their getting in a fight, their being hit by a car or other life-threatening situations.

Another benefit for spaying or neutering your pet is a decrease in the risk of certain cancers. Many urinary or reproductive system problems are eradicated with a simple, commonplace procedure.

Break Bad Behavior

Save your furniture and floors from smelly, unsightly stains. Unfixed animals are far more aggressive and likely to have a urine-marking problem. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not only male dogs and cats who mark. Unspayed females are also prone to scent marking to attract a mate. It’s best to prevent these negative behaviors quickly, before they become habitual. If your pet is older, fixing them will lessen their aggression, their desire to roam and common dominance behaviors.
