Having your dog or cat spayed or neutered is one of the kindest and most responsible things you can do as a pet parent. In addition to ensuring that your pet will not contribute to the already overwhelming population of unwanted pets, these simple procedures prevent or drastically reduce the likelihood of many common health problems. They can also curb certain problematic behaviors and make sharing your home with a feline or canine companion less stressful. At Madera Veterinary Hospital, we perform spays and neuters in Tucson for puppies and kittens as well as adult dogs and cats.

Spay & Neuter Benefits

Preventing your dog or cat from adding to the unwanted pet population is a huge benefit of having them spayed or neutered. There are also a number of health benefits. Spaying eliminates the risk of uterine and ovarian cancer and significantly lowers the risk of breast cancer in female pets. In male dogs and cats, neutering eliminates the risk of testicular cancer and lowers the risk of prostate problems.

In addition, spaying or neutering is known to reduce or eliminate certain problematic behaviors, such as howling, roaming, spraying, and aggression. The idea that spaying and neutering make pets lazy and overweight is a myth. There are plenty of spayed and neutered pets who are just as fit and active as their unaltered counterparts.
