Spaying and neutering your pets is one of the most beneficial things you can do for your pet's health and longevity. Letting your animals go unaltered can lead to risky behaviors and unwanted litters that need homes. At North Hills Animal Hospital in Sherwood, AR, we're here to help you with spay & neuter services. Instead of searching for a "veterinarian near me" on the search engines, call us so we can help you and your pets.
Stop Unwanted Behavior in Its Tracks
Unaltered pets engage in aggressive behaviors that can make living with them difficult. Pets do not typically distinguish indoors from outdoors when their reproductive hormones have taken over their personalities and training. Female cats in heat are noisy and urinate more frequently while male cats and dogs will mark their territory with urine. Male dogs are prone to mounting behaviors and may be more aggressive with humans and other animals. Male pets are more likely to roam away from home in search of a mate. Spay and neuter your pets as early as possible to prevent these potentially harmful behaviors.
Spay and Neuter Prevents Health Problems
Unaltered pets have a higher risk of suffering from bacterial infections. Unaltered pets also have a higher risk of cancer. Females animals can get mammary tumors, which have a 50/50 chance of being benign or malignant in dogs and a 90% malignancy rate in cats. Pyometra, also known as a uterine infection, is a life-threatening condition that may require emergency medical attention. Unaltered male dogs are prone to testicular cancer and prostate issues. While these conditions are rarer in male cats, the risk is still present.
Spaying and Neutering Saves Money
A simple and inexpensive procedure early on in your pet's life might prevent your pet from needing emergency surgery later on. Intact pets are far more likely to suffer sex organ related health problems. Pets that have not been spayed or neutered also engage in more dangerous behavior which could lead to injury or illness. Spaying and neutering your pets helps ensure a safe and happy life for them.
