Are you wondering whether or not to take your male cat or dog for a neuter? Wonder no more. Our veterinarian here at Lakeview Pet Hospital in Oklahoma City tells why neutering is incredibly beneficial for your pet.
Neuter Health Benefits
During a neuter surgery, the veterinarian removes the male’s testicles. As a result, the number one health benefit is that your cat or dog is forever protected from testicular cancer. Neutering also reduces the likelihood of some prostate problems.
A neutered cat or dog is like a different animal – for the better! Your male is more likely turn into a homebody and much less likely to seek a willing female partner. Plus, his curtailed roaming behaviors save him from potential injury from crossing streets and getting into fights with other animals.
Male cat spraying and male dog marking are two obnoxious behaviors that wreak havoc in a household with odors and stains. These behaviors are drastically reduced or eliminated after our veterinary performs neuter surgery.
Embarrassed by a pet that tries to mount everything in sight? This behavior is also decreased after surgery.
Un-neutered pets can be aggressive with other animals and humans. Once your pet’s hormones are removed, these dangerous behaviors lessen and your pet’s personality is likely to change to be much more agreeable.
A neutered male pet is automatically a cost-saving dog or cat. The health benefits prevent future visits to the veterinary for cancer and other issues. The behavior benefits prevent actions that can also result in future veterinarian bills.
Benefit the Greater Good
Animal shelters are overrun and rescue groups beyond capacity because of so many unwanted pets. Neutering your pet plays a big part in stopping the number of unplanned litters and homeless pets.
