WHY SPAY AND NEUTER YOUR PET? Because your pet will be healthier and live longer!
- reduced risk of mammary cancer
- unspayed females can develop a life threatening uterine infection called pyometra
- male dogs can develop prostate problems and testicular cancers if not neutered
- spraying in common in intact male cats
- roaming and destructive behavior to find a mate
SPAYING AND NEUTERING WILL NOT
- change your pet’s personality
- make them fat and lazy. Too much food and not enough exercise is the culprit!
Pets are often not spayed or neutered so children can witness the “miracle of birth” or people believe there is money to be made in breeding purebred dogs and cats.
Up to 25% of dogs in shelters are purebred and to responsibly breed purebred dogs costs thousands of dollars in pre-breeding health screening, in addition to the costs of caring for the mom and pups. Canadian Federation of Humane Society statistics show that roughly 15% of dogs and 45% of cats that are admitted to shelters are euthanized.
Having just one litter contributes to these statistics by adding to pet overpopulation.
At Calgary Pet Wellness, we treat your pets like the valued family members they are.
