There are three important reasons we highly recommend spaying or neutering your pet. The primary reason is to help your pet live longer. Spaying eliminates the risk of ovarian cancer, uterine cancer, and pyometras (a life threating infection of the uterus) Spaying also decreases the risk of mammary tumors. Neuter eliminates testicular cancer and decrease the risk of future prostate problems. Secondly, there are some behavior reasons to consider spaying and neuter.
