Craig Road Animal Hospital’s Hospital Administrator Mike Falconer introduces the Las Vegas animal hospital’s low cost spay and neuter special pricing, along with some thoughts on why you’d want to be your pet “fixed”!
There are both medical and behavioral reasons to have your dog or cat spayed or neutered.
Spayed and neutered pets are less apt to roam; decreasing the risk fights or traumas such as being hit by a car. Cats that are spayed and neutered are also less prone to urine marking behavior.
Spaying a female dog or cat decreases the risk of breast cancer, especially if done before the first heat cycle. Other health benefits of spaying include avoiding uterine cancer, and preventing a life-threatening infection called pyometra.
Neutering male dogs has the benefit of eliminating testicular cancer, reducing prostatic disease, decreasing aggression, as well as decreasing behavior problems such as urine marking and roaming.
