Spay and neuter procedures help protect Calgary’s pets in a number of ways. There are many benefits to having your pet spayed or neutered:
Spaying and neutering help control the pet population and reduce the number of stray animals.
Spaying your dog before her first heat cycle can decrease her risk of mammary cancer, but waiting for her to go through three cycles increases the risk by 2/3.
Male dogs tend to roam if they’re intact because they’re looking for a mate. This increases the risk of exposure to disease, being struck by a car, lost, or stolen.
With these factors in mind, the team at Auburn Bay Veterinary Clinic encourages you to consider spaying or neutering your pet. Spay and neuter procedures usually take just a day but can help extend your pet’s life.
What Is the Difference between Spaying and Neutering?
Spaying sterilizes a female pet so she cannot become pregnant. Neutering sterilizes a male pet so he cannot make females pregnant.
