Top 5 Reasons to Spay or Neuter Your Pet
You love your pets and want them to live healthy, happy lives. Spaying and neutering them at animal clinics like Regent Avenue Veterinary Clinic can help you. Below are the top 5 reasons for spaying and neutering in Winnipeg.
- Health Benefits – Spaying and neutering helps prevent diseases such as uterine infections and breast or testicular cancer. And, if you worry about your pet’s weight after spaying or neutering, make sure you continue to provide exercise and monitor food intake and your pet will maintain a healthy weight.
- Less roaming and bad behavior – Intact males will do just about anything to find a mate, which can put them in danger, and when females go into heat they yowl and urinate more frequently. Unneutered dogs and cats may mark their territory by spraying urine all over the house, and they may develop aggression problems. Neutered cats and dogs are able focus their attention on their human families instead of on reproducing.
- Cost-effective – While it may seem expensive, the cost of spaying or neutering your pet is a lot lower than the cost of having and caring for a litter. It also beats the cost of treatment when your unneutered male escapes and gets into fights!
- Community benefits – Stray animals can pose a problem in many parts of the country by preying on wildlife, causing car accidents, damaging the local fauna and frightening children. Spaying and neutering in Winnipeg will help reduce the number of animals on the streets.
- Fight overpopulation – Shelter euthanasia is the number one killer of companion animals, as every year millions of cats and dogs of all ages and breeds are euthanized or suffer as strays. These high numbers are the result of unplanned or unwanted litters that could have been prevented by spaying or neutering.
