Spaying & Neutering


We all know that spaying (for females) and neutering (for males) prevents unwanted litters. But did you know that it is an important element of your pet’s long-term health care? Yep, research shows that spaying and neutering decrease your furry friend’s chances of getting uterine infections, breast cancer, and testicular cancer.

And it minimizes bad behavior! Your spayed female won’t go into heat, which means you can minimize yowling and spraying. And your neutered male is less likely to roam away from home, mark his territory, bark excessively, or show forms of aggression.

Don’t forget about rabbits when it comes to spaying and neutering–they reproduce even faster than cats or dogs. Neutering your male rabbit can reduce behavior problems such as lunging, mounting, spraying and boxing. And your spayed female rabbit is less likely to get uterine, ovarian or mammary cancer.
