                "Why Should I Spay or Neuter My Pet?"


  ANSWER:     "Spaying or Neutering Your Pet

                                       Can Save its Life

                    and the Lives of Many Other Pets"

Common Terms for "RESPONSIBLE PET GUARDIANSHIP":


"SPAY"   -   "NEUTER"  -  "FIX"  -  "ALTER"  -  "STERILIZE"

"CASTRATE"  -  "OVARIOHYSTERECTOMY" 



SPAYING or NEUTERING YOUR PET:



✔      Will NOT change its personality, but WILL remove the "Call of the Wild" urge


✔      Will reduce the risk of your pet developing cancer


✔      Will reduce the risk of life-threatening infections such as Pyometra


✔      Will reduce the spread of sexually transmitted diseases


✔      Will reduce the spread of contagious viruses which can occur through contact between animals which have not been                properly vaccinated


✔      Will eliminate the risk of your pet becoming injured while mating


✔      Will eliminate unwanted litters which may end up homeless and euthanized


✔     Will eliminate the potential of "Dystocia" during whelping (birthing) which can be fatal to the puppies and to the mother


✔​     Will reduce your pet's urge to roam and ultimately becoming lost, injured, killed by a moving vehicle, or having a fatal               encounter with another pet or wild animal ​​
