Spaying & Neutering is very important for your pets health. It decreases many problematic behaviors.
Female Dogs go through a reproductive cycle well known as heat every six months. They produce a bloody discharge and often become short-tempered and anxious during this time.
Female Cats go through a reproductive cycle every 3 to 4 weeks during Spring and Fall.T hey can become quite vocal during this time and will also start exhibiting odd behaviors.
Unaltered male dogs can be prone to mark their territory with urine and even have more aggressive tendencies.
Spaying a female BEFORE her first heat cycle is important. It lowers her chances of developing mammary cancer and her chance of pyometra and uterine infections.
Neutering a male dog before 6 months reduces his chance of prostate gland disease and testicular cancers or infections.
If those weren’t reasons enough to spay and neuter remember in North America Six to Eight MILLION unwanted dogs and cats are euthanized each year. This is because there simply are not enough homes per pet. Help end the tragic homeless pet cycle, spay and neuter your pets.
Remember in Los Angeles County it is the law to have your pets spayed and neutered by 4 months of age!
