Why Should You Schedule Neutering Surgery?
Many times, our animal patients benefit from neutering. Both spaying and neutering can offer a wide range of benefits to the pet population. In short, there are far more animals than there are homes for them. Neutering surgery gives you, a pet owner, the ability to minimize this. In addition, there are other benefits to this procedure including:
- There’s less aggression in your pet. Your pet’s aggressive behavior may improve significantly as a result of this procedure.
- Your pet is less likely to roam. Your pet is less likely to leave home or become injured as a result of roaming.
- There’s less risk of disease. Specifically, the risk of testicular cancer is eliminated. This can help your pet to live a longer life.
If you’ve wondered if you should pursue this type of procedure for your pet, contact us and talk about it with our team.
When Should Your Pet Be Neutered?
We recommend to you when you should have your pet neutered. Various factors play a role in this including your pet’s overall health. Studies indicate that you can have your pet neutered when their testicles drop, but not sooner than this. We usually recommend this between the ages of 6 and 9 months. Again, every patient is different. Our vet can provide you with more information about the best time to neuter your pet based on its specific health and age. We’re happy to provide your pet with an examination to get started.
