Love your bodily companion? spay or sterilize - pets


Ozzie, my four-month old Rottweiler peered up at me with his big brown eyes, as I briefly left him for a very chief surgical procedure. As much as it broke my heart to drop off my "baby" at the local humane society, I know it was the dependable thing to do.

What Ozzie doesn't know is that today is the first day of the rest of his life. He is being neutered.

Being a rescue volunteer, I've acquired a fairly large brood of dogs into my breed circle. Having adopted six boys and two girls of the canine species, I've come to accomplished agreement of the import of spaying and neutering our furry companions.

Persons who come in call with me and my animals will ask, "how can you spay and spay these delightful animals? You could breed them and make a profit. "

When I meet these folks, I tend to get a hardly testy and develop into a bit wordy with an account to the manifold reasons after my alternative as a dependable pet owner:

  • (All animals are beautiful, but but for an characteristic has the time, funding or capital to "breed" puppies, it is not a good idea to authorize one's animals to churn out offspring that may end up in a "puppy mill" environment. (For more in sequence on "Puppy Mills," go to www. puppymillrescue. com)
  • Spaying or neutering is a equally low-cost modus operandi if done at your local shelter or Humane Citizens Spay or Sterilize Clinic. Furthermore, spaying and neutering has least risks and is one of the most common, brute surgical procedures.
  • (For the concentrate on of your local Humane Society, click here: www. napcc. aspca. org )
  • A spayed or neutered bodily behaves better. While unsterilized males tend to roam in examination of a mate, they risk injury or death due to passage and fight incidents. They also tend to mark territory with urine, and can be quite uncomfortable when they choose to mount matter and human legs when excited. Unsterilized females will also roam, have bloody discharge, will yowl and urinate more often all through heat cycles; and have a tendancy to tear or chew their way out of an enclosure. Neutered or spayed dogs and cats focus primarily on their human counterparts and do not exhibit actions patterns as mentioned above.
  • My main analyze for spaying or neutering: Spayed or Neutered animals live longer, recovered lives. ". . . By neutering a male cat or dog ahead of six months of age prevents testicular blight and prostate disease. Spaying a female cat or dog helps avert pyometra and breast cancer. . . " (Facts from ASPCA "Why Spay or Neuter?" Flyer) Additionally, spaying or neutering your animals can prolong their lives by an be an average of of two to three years.
  • Responsibility. Millions of animals needlessly be ill with and die every year. Why? Each one loves cuddly puppies and cute kittens, but when these once-adorable babies grow up, offspring and adults, alike may lose appeal in caring for them. Usually, these animals end up in shelters where they may be euthanized - or worse, get "put out" where they end up as strays. Strays, unfortunately, may die from starvation, disease, climate exposure or being hit by traffic.
  • When I was younger, I used to watch Bob Barker's "The Price is Right" on television. At the end of each and every show, I honestly bring to mind Mr. Barker reiterating, "Help be in command of the pet population, have your pets spayed or neutered today. " What a profound and conscientious announcement that is. You see, if you do your part by portion be in command of the pet population, you may just save a life. Do you love your beast companion(s)? I do.
