Here Are The Benefits Of Spaying / Neutering Your Pups

It is essential for most fur ball Mommies and Daddies to seriously consider spaying and neutering their pups. Desexing your pup can have numerous benefits to your fur ball, you, and those around you.

Here are some of them.

Spaying female pups helps improve their overall health by decreasing the risk of mammary gland tumors and ovarian or uterine cancer. Due to the elimination of their heat cycles, male fur balls will not be attracted to them or your home, and your pup will feel less desire to roam around.

Meanwhile, male pups will also receive health benefits from being neutered. For one, the risk of testicular cancer is completely removed by neutering and the chances of prostate diseases are reduced. In addition, a neutered fur ball will be less likely to exhibit aggressive behavior. He will also feel less inclined to roam around and will likely not spray or mark.

Overall, desexing your pups will reduce companion animal overpopulation, preventing unwanted puppies from being given away to shelters that will likely be forced to euthanize or ignore them. Stray or unwanted animals have become a concern in many communities as well, as they may frighten people around them, cause disturbances, or make a mess of greenery and public areas.

Plus, you have to pay for them! The American Veterinary Medical Association claims that the handling costs of unwanted animals reaches over a billion dollars per year, with the fund being supplied by taxpayers and private humanitarian agencies.

At the end of the day, even if your only focus is your own pup’s health, spaying and neutering helps fur balls live longer, healthier lives – it increases their life for an average of one to three years. There’s no way that isn’t an awesome benefit! Please like and share this to inform others of the benefits of desexing pups.
