Why To Spay Or Neuter
There are numerous reasons you should spay or neuter your dog or cat! Let’s talk about health reasons first. Female animals that are spayed CAN’T get uterine cancers, their risk of mammary (breast) cancer is reduced (to almost zero if spayed before her first heat), and they are less prone to urinary tract infections. As early as six months of age, female dogs begin a biannual heat cycle during which they attract every unneutered male dog around. She can also have hormonal or personality changes and leak bloody vaginal discharge throughout your house. Neutered male dogs avoid prostate enlargement and testicular cancers, and are less likely to roam, get into fights, or be injured. And no, your dog won’t get fat because you spay her. – See more at Pet Health Network.
