Why You Should Spay/Neuter Your Pet

Why You Should Spay-Neuter Your Pet

The decision to spay or neuter your pet is important for owners. It can be the single best decision you make for your pet’s long-term welfare, according to Irving Animal Services.

Getting your pet spayed or neutered can:

  • Improve your pet's health: Pets who live in the states with the highest rates of spaying/neutering also live the longest.
  • Reduce unruly behavior: Spaying or neutering your dog can reduce urine-marking and may stop it altogether.
  • Reduce the cost of pet care: When you factor in the long-term costs potentially incurred by an unaltered pet, the savings afforded by spay/neuter are clear, especially with the availability of low-cost spay/neuter clinics that partner with Irving Animal Services.
  • Reduce the number of homeless pets euthanized in animal shelters.
