The Importance of Spaying and Neutering Your Rio Rancho Pets

Taking the time to spay and neuter Rio Rancho pets is one of the easiest ways to make sure that you have a happy and healthy furry friend.

Spaying and Neutering Rio Rancho Pets: An Overview

The surgical procedure of spaying and neutering removes an animal’s reproductive organs.  This makes male animals unable to impregnate females and female animals to become pregnant. These surgeries are relatively low-risk procedures, with animals typically recovering fully within just two weeks.

Why Is It Important to Spay and Neuter Pets?

Spaying and neutering your pet accomplishes so much more than just preventing them from having babies. Here are three benefits of this surgical procedure:

#1: Potential Positive Behavior Changes

Removing an animal’s sexual organs has the potential to reduce or eliminate impolite behaviors such as urinating on your favorite potted plant, jumping the fence to become better acquainted with the neighbor’s female dog, or getting better acquainted with your neighbor’s leg, for that matter. Getting rid of the extremely potent smell of your male cat’s urine won’t change his behavior, but you’ll sure smile a lot more.

#2: Eliminate Certain Health Complications

Spaying or neutering your pet reduces or completely eliminates the risk of a variety of life-threatening health problems. These include uterine infections, testicular cancer, mammary tumors, and prostate enlargement.

#3: Reduced Animal Overpopulation

By spaying or neutering your animal, you are doing your part in decreasing the overpopulation of animal shelters. With thousands of homeless dogs and cats already alive and ready to find a home, spaying or neutering is the best way to prevent more innocent animals from being euthanized from lack of appropriate homes.
