Spaying or neutering your pet is the process of removing the reproductive organs, and if you haven’t given that a thought as yet, check these quick aspects.
Spaying is safe
Spaying is done under general anesthesia and is among the most common surgeries performed on animals. Most pets handle the surgery and its post-operative care very well, and the risks are very limited. Once the neutering or spaying is done, vet’s advice is particularly important for the initial few days, during which you may need to visit the hospital.
Why consider neutering?
Simply because overpopulation of pets has led to abuse, increased abuses and more shelters filled with unwanted pets. Most young animals at the shelter is put to sleep due to space constraints and lack of homes, and the best way to avoid the gruesome conditions is to neuter as many pets as possible.
Spaying effects on the pet
Neutering your pet also has some great benefits like reduced chances of uterine, testicle and breast cancer. Also, it has been found that the process helps in addressing behavioral and aggressive tendencies to some extent in a majority of cases. Apart from health benefits, you can also stop those pet escapades that are common for the needs of mating.
Neutering and spaying are effective ways to deal with pet population, and every case makes a difference to the cause. As for the costs, this is like a limited and onetime expense, which is way lesser than what pet parents spend on a nursing mother and her puppies or kittens.
