As an animal owner, you undoubtedly know that having your pet spayed or neutered is widely regarded as one of the most responsible decisions you can possibly make. Despite this, though, you may not be fully aware of just how important these simple procedures are. While preventing pregnancy in companion animals is the primary purpose, spaying and neutering provide several other benefits for pets and their owners.

At Capital Blvd Animal Hospital & Pet Inn, we offer spaying and neutering in Raleigh and would be glad to perform this life-improving (and potentially life-saving!) procedure on your pet.

The Benefits of Spaying & Neutering

Spaying and neutering prevent unwanted litters, which helps keep homeless dogs and cats out of shelters and off the streets. These procedures can also lower your pet’s risk of developing a variety of health issues. They lower the risk of endocrine disorders, such as diabetes. Spaying a female animal eliminates the risk of ovarian and uterine cancer as well as a painful and potentially deadly condition known as Pyometra. It also significantly lowers the risk of breast tumors and cancer.

In males, neutering eliminates the risk of testicular cancer. It significantly lowers the likelihood of prostate issues, too.

In addition, spaying and neutering can curb troublesome behaviors, such as territorial marking, whining, howling, yowling, aggression, and roaming.
