Spaying / Neutering Your Pet

Posted by petsavenuevet on April 6, 2015 in Pet Healthcare | No Comments

Spaying or neutering our pets is an important decision that pet owners have to make. Read our latest article to find out more about these procedures and how they can benefit our pets. Also, learn the truth behind some common myths regarding spaying and neutering.

 

Spaying or neutering our pets is undoubtedly a major decision for us as petowners. However, it is a decision that can improve our pets’ quality of life in the long run. Desexing our furry companions not only prevents unwanted litters, it also reduces undesirable behaviors and lowers the risk of various types of cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

Myth #1: De-sexing will make my pet fat.

There is no concrete evidence that proves this. Lack of exercise and the wrong diet will cause your pet to pack on extra pounds. Ensure that your pet gets enough exercise and monitor its food intake to keep it fit and trim.

Myth #2: My family should experience the miracle of birth.

It is an exciting experience to witness the birth of a litter of kittens or puppies. But that will quickly be replaced by the overwhelming responsibilities of feeding and caring for the new bom and their mother. Furthermore, it may be difficult to find good homes for the babies.

Myth #3: My pet has to go through a painful and dangerous surgery.

Spays and neuters are routine surgeries performed by qualified vets and the risk of complications is low.

Please speak to your vet if you have any doubts that need to be clarified or if you require more information about the procedures
