What Are the Health Benefits of Spaying and Neutering Pets?

Spaying and neutering are common procedures recommended by veterinarians to ensure the health and well-being of pets. Spaying involves removing the female reproductive organs, and neutering involves removing the male’s testicles to prevent the production of reproductive hormones and eliminate the possibility of reproducing. Along with avoiding the financial burden and stress of an unwanted litter, spaying and neutering has numerous health benefits for cats and dogs. Here’s a closer look at the health benefits of spaying and neutering pets.

Reduced Cancer Risk

For females, the risk of uterine and ovarian cancer is completely eliminated by spaying. The risk of breast cancer is also dramatically reduced—when spaying takes place before the first heat cycle, the risk is almost entirely eliminated. For males, the risk of testicular cancer is eliminated through neutering, and the risk of prostate cancer is significantly lowered.

No Risk of Pregnancy

Pregnancy is physically hard on pets and may present several complications, including preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, and mastitis. Even without complications, your pet will need extra veterinary visits and lots of care and attention at home if she becomes pregnant.

Cleaner Home for Your Pets

Spaying and neutering can help you create a more sanitary home for you and your pet. Male cats and dogs who are neutered are not as prone to spraying and marking their territory, so you are less likely to have stinky messes to clean up around the house. For female cats and dogs, the heat cycle can come with frequent carpet stains when the pet is in heat.

When you bring home a new pet, one of your first tasks should be to schedule a veterinary exam, which may include a discussion about spaying and neutering your pet. These routine procedures are incredibly safe and can help you establish a lifetime of better health for your furry companion.
