Why Spay & Neuter is Essential
Spayed female pets face a reduced risk of certain cancers, will not go into heat and attract unwanted attention from male pets, and can live a longer life. An unsprayed female dog who is in heat can be a real nuisance for the whole family. Neutered male pets will be more affectionate, less aggressive, and less likely to get testicular cancer. They can live longer as a result of neutering services as well. Without neutering, male pets can be distant and may be aggressive with other pets or with family members. Protect your family's and your pet's health by scheduling this routine procedure with our Glendale veterinary practice!
Spaying and neutering your pets is a responsible practice for all pet owners. It sets a good example for children while reducing the amount of stray pets in your community. Strays can be physically destructive and may become violent if provoked. They pose a community hazard, and the easiest way to make your community safer is to spay or neuter your pets.
Our patients often ask when they should schedule an appointment for spaying or neutering cats and dogs. As a general rule, we recommend that you spay or neuter pets at the age of six months to have the most health benefits. Pets who are older than 6 months can be spayed/neutered; however, younger pets should wait until the 6 month mark to have the surgery.
