As Part Of The Battle Against Pet Overpopulation, ..

 


As part of the battle against pet overpopulation, sterilisation is routinely performed on shelter puppies and kittens before they get adopted.

Many pet owners think their female pet needs to experience the joy of motherhood at least once or that their male pet will feel less masculine if he’s neutered, but animals simply do not think that way.

Financial constraints, fear of anesthesia and lack of understanding of the benefits on sterilisation, may seem valid, but the reasons to spay or neuter far outweigh the risks of not doing so. Older pets who are spayed or neutered can avoid various cancers and infections.

If you’re still not convinced that spaying or neutering your pet can lead to a happier, healthier, longer life, consider these benefits:

* Spaying your female pet drastically slashes her risk of mammary cancer.

* Neutering your male pet eliminates his risk of testicular cancer.

* Spaying and neutering limits pet overpopulation.

* Spaying your female pet prevents heat cycles.

* Neutering your male pet reduces inappropriate behaviors, including fighting.

Spaying and neutering is more *cost-effective* than skipping the surgery. A uterine infection that requires emergency surgery to save your female pet’s life easily can cost several thousand ringgits, while a simple tomcat neuter costs much less than products needed to eliminate urine odors after your home has been well-marked by your territorial male cat.
