Extractions: Spaying or neutering provides many health benefits and behavior benefits in addition to helping to reduce the overpopulation of pets. Surgically altering animals to control reproduction goes by many names, "neutering" and "spaying" being the two most common terms. Neutering involves the removal of both testicles from the male, and therefore the removal of sperm-producing tissues. Spaying involves the removal of the uterus and both ovaries from the female. Spayed females conceive and will not go through heat cycles after surgery. Why should I spay or neuter my pet? A great deal of attention should be paid to controlling unwanted pregnancies in our pets. Although everyone thinks puppies and kittens are cute, there are just too many of them. If we were to take care of all the homeless pets in this country, every man, woman and child would have to own seven pets, that's 28 pets for a family of four. Obviously, this is impossible. Unfortunately, many of these unwanted puppies and kittens end up abandoned and eventually die of starvation, suffer injuries and death from car accidents or are euthanized animal control facilities. Those who survive can be public health hazards, carrying diseases to other animals and even to people. Health benefits: In addition to preventing the birth of unwanted animals, spaying and neutering will help your pets live longer, healthier lives. There are many health benefits associated with these surgeries. Males, after neutering, have a reduction in the size of the prostate gland, which greatly decreases their risk of bacterial infections and prostate in later years. Males should be altered about one year of age in order to obtain the most health benefits.
