At Camden Pet Hospital, we understand the importance of spaying and neutering puppies and kittens to help them live a long, healthy life.
Spaying or neutering your pet reduces common problems, such as:
- Pyometras, or uterine infections, which are potentially life-threatening conditions that are very expensive to treat. They are 100% preventable if your pet is spayed.
- Malignant mammary tumors that can spread to other areas of the body. Spaying your pet prior to their first heat cycle significantly reduces the likelihood of tumors forming.
- Overpopulation which, sadly, can lead to euthanasia.
- Testicular cancer and certain infections, such as prostatitis, that can lead to malignant or benign swelling of the prostate.
- Unwanted behavioral problems, such as aggression, territorial marking, and wandering.
