Why Spay and Neuter?

Curb unwanted behaviors

Intact dogs are more prone to urine-marking than neutered dogs. Although urine-marking is usually associated with male dogs, females may do it too. Spaying or neutering your dog should reduce urine-marking and may even stop it altogether.

For cats, the urge to spray is extremely strong in those not altered, so the simplest solution is to alter by 5 months old before the problem arises. Neutering solves 90% of all marking issues, even in cats who have been doing it for a while. It can also minimize howling, the urge to roam and fighting with other males.

Other behavioral problems that may be alleviated by spay/neuter include:

Certain types of aggressive behavior.
Roaming, especially when females are in heat.
Excessive barking and mounting activity.
In-heat behaviors such as yowling/vocalizing, rolling and demanding behaviors.

The reduced lifespan of unaltered pets can, in part, be attributed to an increased urge to roam. Such roaming can expose them to fights with other animals, resulting in injuries and infections, trauma from vehicle strikes and other accidental mishaps.
