During surgical sterilization, a veterinarian removes specific reproductive organs. The ovaries, fallopian tubes, and uterus of a female dog or cat are removed during an ovariohysterectomy, also known as a “spay.” This stops her from reproducing and terminates her heat cycle and breeding instinct. During orchiectomy, also known as “neutering,” the testes of a male dog or cat are removed. As a result, he is unable to reproduce, and male breeding activities are reduced or eliminated.
Every year, thousands of unwanted dogs and cats, including puppies and kittens, are euthanized. The good news is that responsible pet owners can assist. By having your dog or cat sterilized, you can help prevent the birth of unwanted puppies and kittens. Spaying and neutering can help prevent unwanted litters, protect against major health problems, and can alleviate many of the behavioral issues associated with the mating instinct.
The ovaries of a female dog or cat are removed, which eliminates heat cycles and minimizes unwanted behaviors that may irritate the owner. When the testes are removed from male dogs and cats, the breeding instinct is reduced, making them less likely to roam and more content to stay at home.
Female dogs and cats that are spayed when they are young can avoid serious health problems later in life, such as uterine infections and breast cancer. By neutering your male pet, you can lower his risk of developing benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate gland) and testicular cancer.
