Benefits of Dog Neutering and Cat Neutering
Like spaying, neutering your male pets also promotes better health and longer lives. Dog neutering and cat neutering helps prevent testicular cancer and even some prostate issues. In addition, dogs and cats that have not been neutered are more likely to be hurt in traffic accidents and fights. This is because unneutered pets will go to great lengths to find a mate, escaping their homes in order to roam. Some pet owners also find that neutered pets are better behaved. They are less likely to mark their territory and mount other dogs, people, and objects. Dog neutering and cat neutering can also help ward off aggression problems if done early enough.
When to Spay or Neuter
Keep your pets in good health by spaying and neutering them as soon as possible. Dog spaying and neutering are typically done at six to nine months depending on the breed, but it can be performed as early as eight weeks if the puppy is in good health. Cat spaying and neutering procedures are usually recommended before the cat reaches five months old and can be done as early as eight weeks.
