February is National Spay/Neuter Awareness Month. It’s a month where we remind all pet owners that unless you are planning to become a responsible dog breeder, the best option is to spay/neuter your pet.
To shed some light on the subject, we created an infographic that shares all of the benefits that come from caring for your pet through a spay or neuter.
Spaying or Neutering Your Pet
Having pets spayed or neutered helps cut down on the amount of animals that go into shelters each year.
There are also benefits of getting your pet fixed. Neutered male dogs live on average 18% longer and spayed females live 23% longer.
Spaying helps prevent uterine infections and breast cancer.
Spaying or neutering also deters aggressive behavior, excessive barking and marking.
