Spay & Neuter Your Pets
At the Greenfield Veterinary Clinic, we are proud to provide spay and neutering services to all of our patients. It is not only about stopping overpopulation, but it is also best for your pet’s overall health.
The Medical Benefits
Getting your pet spayed or neutered provides health benefits. Not only do the medical procedures performed by a veterinarian help with pet overpopulation, but they also give animals a longer, healthier life.
Female pets face complications in reproducing. Having your pet spayed eliminates issues with pregnancy and delivery. The removal of their ovaries and uterus means that they will not face reproductive cancers. It also keeps them from developing uterine infections. Neutering a male pet reduces the threat of future prostate disease.
The Behavioral Benefits
When female animals go into heat, their behavior is less than ideal. However, when you spay them, the need to mark their territory goes away. Unwanted tendencies in male pets are avoidable by neutering them. It eliminates the need to mount, mark with urination, aggression, roaming, and other hormonal behavior.
However, in both cases, it depends on the age of sterilization. It is best to have the procedure done early. It is safe to spay and neuter puppies around six months old. In cats, it is best around eight weeks old. In both cases, spaying and neutering gives your pet a long, high-quality life. It also protects the community from the pet overpopulation.
