Benefits of Spaying and Neutering

Benefits of Spaying and Neutering

Spaying and neutering are often used interchangeably because the average pet lover may not understand the difference. Our veterinarian in Cary, NC, however, will tell you that to spay one’s female cat or dog is to perform an ovariohysterectomy. Neutering a male pet, on the other hand, means to castrate such animal. Some diehard animal lovers balk at the notion of a cat or dog being spayed or neutered. “How could anyone force a living being to undergo such unnatural proceedings,” they may wonder or ask out loud.

The truth is that spaying and neutering your pet comes with many benefits that include medical advantages. Read on for three significant perks of letting your pet undergo castration or an ovariohysterectomy below!

Medical Benefits of Spaying or Neutering

Your female cat or dog stands to live longer when you spay her early in life. Meanwhile, neutering substantially reduces the risk of testicular cancer development in male pets.

Behavioral Effects

Spayed females do not go into heat, which means that they are less likely to do things that make you go bananas. Male animals, particularly dogs, are not as fast to run away from home when they have been neutered. 

Spaying and Neutering Leads to Lower Costs

You may not think that you’re saving money by forking out hundreds for surgery now. Your pockets, however, will thank you later when you do not have to spend extra money on food and other necessities to take care of the litter that your pet birthed because he or she had intercourse and conceived. You are also helping the country at large by spaying or neutering your animal as more than three million cats, and dogs roam the streets without homes because of excessive reproduction.
