What are the benefits to spaying and neutering?

Your pet can live a longer healthier life.

Spaying helps prevent uterine infections and breast tumors, which are malignant or cancerous in about 50 percent of dogs and 90 percent of cats. Spaying your pet before her first heat offers the best protection from these diseases.
Neutering your male companion prevents testicular cancer and some prostate problems.

Pediatric spay and neuter is widely supported.

Numerous studies have found that pediatric spay and neuter surgeries are safe and lead to effective control of accidental or indiscriminate breeding
