If you are looking for dog neutering or cat neutering, our team at Lakeville Animal Hospital in Lakeville, MA, are here to help with a “veterinarian near me.”
Why Should I Neuter My Pet?
One of the biggest benefits of neutering your pet is that they aren’t producing puppies or kittens that end up in animal shelters. Most shelters are at or over capacity, which leaves many strays and unwanted pets to be euthanized. Neutering your pet is a great way to prevent this.
While doing your part to fight overpopulation is a great benefit, there’s more to it. One other benefit is that pets who have been neutered have a much lower chance of developing certain conditions and diseases, such as testicular cancer. This means that you can keep your pet alive and healthy for longer.
You can also enjoy the benefit of not having to deal with mating behaviors. It’s no secret that male pets can be some incredible escape artists when they’re looking for a mate. Unfortunately, this puts them in danger, as they are not thinking straight and might run into traffic. In addition to preventing this, you won’t have to deal with your pet “marking his territory.”
Are There Any Risks?
There is always some risk with procedures, but neutering is one of the most common pet procedures performed. Neutering might also be linked to weight gain in pets, but you can work with a veterinarian on our team to help prevent this.
Where Do I Go to Have My Pet Neutered?
A veterinarian on our veterinary team can provide spaying and neutering procedures to help keep your pet healthy and safe. We can also provide you with preventative care, such as vaccinations and routine pet wellness exams, to help support your pet.
