The Benefits of Pet Spay and Neuter

Population Management

Spaying and neutering help control the pet population, reducing the number of unwanted animals and ultimately contributing to a healthier community.

Behavioral Improvements

Neutering male pets can reduce roaming tendencies while spaying female pets can eliminate or decrease the likelihood of heat-related behaviors.

Health Advantages

Spaying and neutering can prevent specific pet health issues like uterine infections and testicular cancer. It also reduces the risk of mammary gland tumors and helps control undesirable reproductive behaviors.

When is it Necessary to Spay or Neuter Your Pet?

Age Considerations

While the optimal age for spaying or neutering can vary based on the pet’s breed and size, many veterinarians recommend performing the procedure around six months. Your Cat & Dog Hospital Of Columbia veterinarian can guide you on the best timing for your pet.

Behavioral Signs

If your pet exhibits undesirable behaviors related to mating instincts, such as aggression, excessive marking, or roaming, it may indicate that spaying or neutering could be beneficial.
