As an animal owner, you probably already know that choosing to have your dog or cat spayed or neutered is a responsible decision. You may not, however, realize just how beneficial these simple and effective procedures are. In addition to doing your part to prevent unwanted litters and keep pets out of already overflowing shelters, having your companion spayed or neutered drastically lowers the incidence of certain health problems. The risk of some diseases is eliminated completely when a pet is desexed. Plus, spaying and neutering are both known to curb some problematic behaviors.

At West Lake Animal Hospital, we provide spay and neuter in Taylorsville and the surrounding areas and would be happy to perform this life-improving (and potentially life-saving!) procedure on your companion.

The Benefits of Spaying and Neutering

Spaying and neutering prevent pets from reproducing, but the benefits don’t stop there. In female animals, spaying significantly lowers the incidence of mammary gland tumors and eliminates the risk of ovarian and uterine cancer as well as Pyometra.
Having your male pet neutered decreases the risk of prostate cancer and completely eliminates the risk of testicular cancer.

Spaying and neutering can also reduce problematic behaviors, including spraying/marking, howling, roaming, humping, and aggression. These procedures lower the risk of diseases related to hormone imbalance as well as endocrine disorders.
