Spay & Neuter

Advantages of Female Sterilization (Spaying):

  • Elimination of being in heat.  No more spotting in the home or attracting males.  It also eliminates animal anxiety and groans/meows of cats caused by their cycle.
  • It completely eliminates the possibility of matings resulting in unwanted puppies/kittens.
  • Eliminates psychological pregnancies that occur in some females after their heat.
  • Prevents uterine infections and ovarian cysts, while reducing the incidence of breast tumors.

Advantages of Sterilization in Males (Neutering):

  • Eliminates animal sex, and the mounting of other animals and humans.
  • Eliminates anxiety and frustration when they detect a female in heat, avoiding in many cases the desire to escape and wander away from home.  Ultimately improving the quality of life of the animal.
  • Reduces or eliminates the aggression toward other males.
  • Reduces (especially in cats) tagging the home with urine.
  • Positively influences prostate diseases and other diseases (some skin conditions , etc.).
  • After the operation the animals are no longer fertile, thus preventing the emergence of unwanted animals likely to be abandoned .
