Why Spay or Neuter My Pet?

Why spay or neuter pets? Eight million to 10 million pets end up in shelters all over the nation every year. Some are lost, some have been abandoned, and some are homeless.

The best and easy way to avoid adding to that number is to spay and neuter your cats and dogs.

Spaying and neutering doesn’t just cut down on the number of unwanted pets, it also has other substantial benefits for your pet. Studies show it also lowers the risk of certain cancers and reduces a pet’s risk of getting lost by decreasing the tendency to roam.

Regular Animal Check Ups can Detect Problems Early

Just like you, your pet can get heart problems, develop arthritis, other diseases or have a toothache. The best way to prevent such problems or catch them early is to schedule regular animal check ups every year.
