There are many articles on the internet about spaying/neutering your dog and other pets. Should I spay or neuter my dog? After you research the subject, discuss it with your vet so you can make a decision about whether or not to spay or neuter and when.
Some Spay-Neuter Resources
Here are some helpful articles to read before you chat with your vet:
- ASPCA – Top 10 Reasons to Spay or Neuter Your Pet
- Humane Society – Spay or Neuter Your Pet?
- Paws – Spay/Neuter
- American Veterinary Medical Association – Spay/Neuter Reasons
If you decide to spay or neuter your pet but do not know where to go to have it done (or you don’t have a vet), the ASPCA has a database of spay and neuter locations throughout the United States: Low-Cost Spay-Neuter Program Database
In the end…
Spaying and neutering helps fight pet overpopulation. Every year, millions of cats and dogs of all ages and breeds are euthanized or suffer as strays. These high numbers are the result of unplanned litters that could have been prevented by spaying or neutering. [See “ASPCA Top 10 Reasons” link above]
