Getting Your Pet Spayed or Neutered in Everett

Getting-Your-Pet-Spayed-or-Neutered-1

As pet owners in Everett, spaying or neutering our cats and dogs is one of the best steps we can take. You’ve likely heard some variation of this throughout the years, but why exactly is it so true?

We’ll see if we can’t convince some of the skeptics out there. Who knows, you might just end up scheduling an appointment with your veterinarian after you learn all the benefits!

 

 Spaying & Neutering Saves Lives

Okay, this first one is a bit of a bummer but you probably knew it was coming. There are tens of millions of cats and dogs in the United States, and only so many homes willing to take another pet in. Millions more are euthanized at shelters across the country (including here in Washington) every year. This problem is one we’ve struggled with for about as long as anyone can remember, too. A litter of kittens often meant joy for the children of the family, and stress for the adults. With an average litter size of 3-5, it’s unlikely that any family can handle an annual surprise from their housecat. This is where spay and neuter services here in Everett come in. You can have your kitty (and only that cat) without having to figure out what to do with a basket full of kittens.

 

And It Might Save Your Pet’s Life Too!

At the end of the day, the information that often convinces pet owners of the importance of this procedure is the list of health benefits for their furry friend. Unsurprisingly, a spay or neuter will help prevent the types of cancer that target the reproductive organs, including breast tumors, testicular cancer and many prostate problems. Plus, the sooner the better is usually true. If you’ve adopted a kitten or puppy, try to avoid listening to old wives’ tales about when to get them spayed or neutered. It’s best to have that conversation with your veterinarian to hear the actual facts.
