Spaying and neutering your pets helps prevent the overpopulation of pets. It is highly recommended by the Humane Society to help ease the burden that shelters shoulder caring for homeless animals. You can spay/neuter your pet as early as eight weeks of age.
Neutering your pet can help your pet be happier, healthier, and give them a longer life. Spaying your female pets will also help control behaviors that are associated with the heat cycle. Neutering your male dogs will eliminate the bad habits that come along with your pet’s sexual drives.
Many people think that they should spay/neuter their pets but the cost deters them. Most animal shelters have low cost options that will allow you to do the best you can for your pet. In the long run, spaying/neutering your pet will be cheaper than your pet reproducing and having to handle the offspring.
The best thing to do is to talk to your veterinarian or look up what options are available so that you can do the best thing for you and your pet. For additional information, hit the link below:
