Why should we spay or neuter our pet?

If you have a pet, one of the most important decisions you have to make is whether to spay or neuter your dog or cat.

Neutering is technically the removal of a dog's or cat's ovaries and uterus, and the removal of a dog's or cat's testicles.

It is a procedure performed by veterinarians under anaesthesia that requires minimal hospitalisation and provides lifelong health benefits for your pet.

3 reasons why you should neuter your pet:

  1. Your pet will live longer and healthier by preventing many pathologies 2.
  2. Your pet's behaviour will improve. Urine marks, fights, runaways or night-time meowing, among others, will disappear.
  3. Animal abandonment is prevented by the disappearance of unwanted litters.

What diseases can be prevented by sterilisation?

The main diseases that can be prevented by sterilisation are the following:

  • In females, sterilisation can prevent pathologies such as hormonal disorders, metritis or inflammation of the uterus, tumours of the uterus, ovaries and breasts, cysts or psychological pregnancies.
  • In males, it prevents unwanted growth of the prostate (making defecation or accidental urine leakage difficult), prostate cancer or testicular cancer.
