What Does it Mean to Spay or Neuter?
Spaying is the process of removing a female animal's ovaries and uterus. This procedure serves to eliminate bleeding, discomfort from heat periods, and whimpering. It also reduces anxious behavior and prevents ovarian cancer.
Neutering is the process of removing a male animal's testes. This procedure serves to reduce aggressive and anxious behavior and prevents testicular cancer. Studies show that spayed and neutered pets live 18 to 23 percent longer than those who are not.
