Spaying and neutering your pets is a critical step in ensuring that they maintain good health and become well-behaved members of your family and your community. Reproductive behavior causes animals to roam the neighborhood, looking for mates, and can be the cause of fighting between animals. This behavior also puts animals in the way of traffic and severe injuries from auto accidents. When you spay and neuter your dog, you not only take an important measure for his health, you also take action to reduce the burden of animal control problems in your community. A vet in Park City can provide information on the many benefits of spaying and neutering for your pet.
When you spay or neuter your cat, you prevent the birth of unwanted kittens that may not be able to find a home and must be euthanized by your community agency. Spaying and neutering can also reduce the behavioral habits that put your pet into dangerous circumstances, and it can also help to prevent diseases of the reproductive organs that can be expensive to treat. In this way, spay and neuter surgery helps to reduce overall veterinary expenses for your pet. In addition, when you spay or neuter your dog, you can reduce behavioral problems, such as aggression and mounting, which can help make your pet a better companion for you and your family.
Spaying is done on female animals and involves removal of the ovaries and uterus. Neutering is the procedure that is done on male animals to remove the testicles, so that the animal can no longer reproduce. These surgeries are relatively simple procedures and require only a short recovery period. The animal is anesthetized for the surgery, and medication for pain and to prevent infection is provided for fast healing. Your Park City vet can answer any concerns you have about spaying and neutering your pet.
