Besides vaccinations, spaying and neutering your pet is one of the best things that you can do to keep them healthy!
Spaying and neutering have many health benefits. Statistically, spayed and neutered pets live longer. Spaying and neutering reduces the need to roam so they are less likely to get hit by cars and get in fights with other animals. Spayed and neutered pets are also less likely to contract certain forms of cancer. In addition, in intact females, there is also a deadly infection called pyometra that occurs in unspayed females. Unneutered males also commonly have a lot of behavioral problems and as they age are more prone to testicular cancer and prostate problems.
