Spay and Neutering
Did you know according to several historical accounts, humans have been spaying or neutering pets and other animals as far back as 284 B.C.? In modern times, these procedures help prevent overpopulation that overwhelms rescues all over the world. They also have several health benefits for pets such as reduced risk of cancers, infections and aggressive behaviours.
Will spaying and neutering make my pet fat?
Not at all. This is a common myth among pet owners. The truth is lack of exercise and a poor diet are the main factors that lead to a pet gaining excess weight.
What is the difference between spaying and neutering a pet?
Spaying is the removal of the female reproductive organs while neutering is the removal of the male reproductive organs. Both procedures will permanently stop your pet from reproducing their own offspring.
