Pet Health, Population Control & More: The Importance of Spaying and Neutering, Ewa, Hawaii

The benefits of spaying and neutering cats and dogs cannot be emphasized enough. It's not only one of the most important things you can do for your pet in regards to health; spaying and neutering also help with population control. Each year, millions of healthy, lovable cats and dogs are euthanized because shelters simply do not have the room to accommodate them.

Rather than contributing to the problem, have your animals spayed and neutered by the pet health experts at Waipahu Waikele Pet Hospital in Waipahu, HI. Learn why their staff urges you to schedule the procedure if you haven’t done so already:

  • Longer Life: Spayed and neutered pets live longer, healthier lives. Spaying protects female cats and dogs from breast cancer and uterine infections. Neutering prevents testicular cancer and gland problems in males if done before animals are six months old.
  • Eliminates Pregnancy Complications and Roaming Urges: Spaying and neutering prevent pregnancy-related complications in females and eliminates the roaming urge in males. Roaming puts male animals at risk of disease, fights with other animals, and vehicle-related injuries or death.
  • No More Stress: Dogs and cats in heat often feel distressed and uncomfortable. Spaying and neutering allow animals to stay happy and calm.
  • Cost-Effective: As a highly cost-effective service, spaying and neutering prevent you from paying for heat-related injuries and complications and prevents the expensive and time consuming task of caring for a litter.

In addition to these benefits, spaying and neutering are the only way to keep the dog and cat population down. Rather than bringing more animals in desperate need of homes into the world, do your part to fight overpopulation.
