When you adopt a new pet, choosing to get the animal spayed or neutered at an animal vet clinic is one of the best health care decisions you can make. Every year, countless animals end up wandering the streets without a safe place to call home. Unfortunately, many are locked up in the humane society and euthanized before they can be adopted by a loving family. Failure to spay or neuter your pet at an animal vet clinic can contribute to the overpopulation of animals that is plaguing our country.
In addition to helping control animal overpopulation, spaying and neutering can also help lengthen the life span of your pet and improve your animal's quality of life. For example, spaying your female pet can help prevent breast cancer and uterine infections, and neutering your male pet can protect against testicular cancer. In addition, spaying and neutering can help eliminate the hormonal fluctuations that can lead to behavioral issues. You can save yourself a lot of frustration and irritation by spaying or neutering your pet before the bad behavior begins.
Finally, spaying and neutering an animal at a veterinary hospital is extremely cost-effective. Taking care of a litter of puppies or kittens can become very time consuming and expensive. In the end, it is much cheaper to have a veterinarian perform a spay or neuter surgery.
Our veterinarians and staff at Eagle Animal Hospital encourage you to get your pets spayed or neutered. Our Chester Springs spay and neuter procedures can help control the animal population and can also help keep your pet healthy for many years to come. We have been performing these routine procedures for many years and are always happy to provide our pet owners with information about each operation and the care that will be necessary for several days following surgery.
