Spay and Neuter

Do Right by Your Pet and Community: Spay & Neuter Surgery

It might seem cruel to take away your pet's natural ability to mate and procreate. However, pet spay and neuter surgeries actually do them, and the local Chagrin Falls pet community, a world of good. Firstly, it helps cut down on the problem of animal overpopulation. Too many unwanted dogs and cats overflow shelters and are subsequently put down. More sterilized pets means we can better control the population and ensure only responsible breeding is done. Secondly, pets who undergo sterilization have a greater chance at a long and fulfilling life as they avoid the risk of many medical maladies. Finally, their behavior changes give you peace of mind and help keep them out of harm's way.

Medical and Behavioral Benefits

Spaying or neutering your pet increases quality of life. Medical benefits give them lasting health, while behavioral changes cause them (and you!) less anxiety so they can focus more on their relationship with you. Keep in mind that while behavioral changes do take place in many animals, it is not always guaranteed as it depends on your pet's individual personality and characteristics.

The following benefits apply to your sterilized pet:

Females:

* Less inclination to roam for a mate
* No heat cycles, which cause frustration and bleeding in dogs
* Possible reduction of urine marking or spraying
* Prevention of uterine infection and cancers
* Minimizes risk of mammary tumors

Males:

* Less inclination to roam for a mate
* Subdued aggression
* Possible reduction of urine marking and mounting
* Prevention of prostate problems and testicular cancer
