Neutering & Spaying

  Back

Neutering means desexing and is depending on the sex of your pet. It involves a castration procedure for a male, or a spay procedure for a female.Cause of the desperate plight of homeless animals we strongly recommend neutering cats and dogs, male and female if they reach maturity. The problem and sorrow of stray dogs and cats would be limited tremendously.

Get your pet neutered

Unless you plan to breed from a pedigree cat or dog, it is essential to have your pet neutered at an early age to prevent further breeding. Many owners often say they love their pet so much they would like to let her have just one litter. They often have homes lined up for the kittens or puppies and therefore they justify to themselves that they have done the right thing. They have, however denied good homes to kittens and puppies already born. Most females get worn out nursing their young and pregnancy itself is not without danger. Neutering is however a simple procedure with very little risk to your pet. A neutered animal is healthier, happier and more affectionate and undoubtedly will have a longer life.

There are no undesirable side effects of neutering or spaying. Neutered pets do not become fat and lazy as some people would claim. The positive benefits are that neutered pets whether male or female are content and healthier, more home loving and do not have the tendency to fight. Spaying and neutering are simple, safe and cost effective ways to promote and protect the healthy life of domestic pets.
