Altering: It's Good for Your Pet Neutered pets tend to live longer than unneutered pets.
Neutered pets have no chance or drastically reduced chances of suffering from a great many health problems. These health problems can be costly and difficult to treat.
Spayed females do not suffer from uterine or ovarian cancer and are highly unlikely to suffer from breast cancer, especially if spayed before her first estrus (or heat) cycle.
In male animals, neutering drastically reduces the chances of prostate difficulties (including cancer).
Altering: It's Good for You:
Neutered dogs are less likely to mark their territory.
A spayed female doesn't have estrus (or heat cycles). The estrus cycle happens about twice a year for dogs. It can last for 12 or more days and often results in a distracted, nervous female--who may cry or howl--and numerous unwanted male visitors.
Neutered dogs are less likely to bite. While neutering isn't a cure-all for all behavior problems, in combination with training it can mean drastic changes in a pet's behavior--almost always for the better.
Male dogs who are neutered are much less likely to run away or get into fights.
Altering: It's Good for the Community
Animal control agencies in nearly every community cost the taxpayers (us)
millions of dollars every year. They do a good job but it's just not enough.
With many millions of homeless animals, we are seeing an annual rise in dog
bites and attacks, torn open garbage containers, feces in public and private
areas, and angry, frightened citizens who do not understand the misery of these
unwanted pets. Additionally, homeless animals disturb the ecological balance by
scaring away or killing birds and wildlife.
