TOP 10 REASONS TO SPAY OR NEUTER YOUR PET
1.  Your female pet will live a longer, healthier life.  Spaying helps prevent uterine infections and breast cancer, which  
is fatal in about 50 percent of dogs and 90 percent of cats. Spaying your pet before her first heat offers the best
protection from these diseases.
   
2.  Neutering provides major health benefits for your male.  Besides preventing unwanted litters, neutering your male
companion prevents testicular cancer, if done before six months of age.
   
3.  Your spayed female won't go into heat.  While cycles can vary, female felines usually go into heat four to five days
every three weeks during breeding season. In an effort to advertise for mates, they'll yowl and urinate more frequently—
sometimes all over the house!
   
4.  Your male dog won't want to roam away from home.  An intact male will do just about anything to find a mate! That
includes digging his way under the fence and making like Houdini to escape from the house. And once he's free to
roam, he risks injury in traffic and fights with other males.
   
5. Your neutered male will be much better behaved.  Neutered cats and dogs focus their attention on their human
families. On the other hand, unneutered dogs and cats may mark their territory by spraying strong-smelling urine all
over the house. Many aggression problems can be avoided by early neutering.
   
6.  Spaying or neutering will NOT make your pet fat.  Don’t use that old excuse! Lack of exercise and overfeeding will
cause your pet to pack on the extra pounds—not neutering. Your pet will remain fit and trim as long as you continue to
provide exercise and monitor food intake.
   
7. It is highly cost-effective.  The cost of your pet's spay/neuter surgery is a lot less than the cost of having and caring
for a litter. It also beats the cost of treatment when your unneutered tom escapes and gets into fights with the
neighborhood stray!
   
8. Spaying and neutering your pet is good for the community. Stray animals pose a real problem in many parts of the
country. They can prey on wildlife, cause car accidents, damage the local fauna and frighten children. Spaying and
neutering packs a powerful punch in reducing the number of animals on the streets.
   
9. Your pet doesn't need to have a litter for your children to learn about the miracle of birth.  Letting your pet produce
offspring you have no intention of keeping is not a good lesson for your children—especially when so many unwanted
animals end up in shelters. There are tons of books and videos available to teach your children about birth in a more
responsible way.
   
10. Spaying and neutering helps fight pet overpopulation.  Every year, millions of cats and dogs of all ages and breeds
are euthanized or suffer as strays. These high numbers are the result of unplanned litters that could have been
prevented by spaying or neutering.
