Being a responsible pet parent means making the right decisions when it comes to ensuring your furry friend’s long-term health and happiness.

In addition to feeding them a high-quality diet and bringing them in for routine wellness exams, having your pet spayed or neutered is an essential step in keeping them healthy. 

Spaying and neutering are routine surgical procedures that prevent reproduction, but they do so much more than just that. These operations also reduce pets’ risk of certain health problems and can even curb problematic behaviors. At Westside Veterinary Hospital, we perform spaying and neutering for pets in Marietta and the surrounding areas, and we recommend these procedures for most of our patients.

Why You Should Have Your Pet Spayed or Neutered

In addition to eliminating the risk of unwanted litters, spaying and neutering prevent health problems affecting the reproductive organs, including testicular cancer, uterine tumors and cancers, and Pyometra. Spaying also lowers the risk of mammary tumors and cancer, while neutering reduces the risk of prostate cancer. Hormone and endocrine disorders, including diabetes, are less prevalent in spayed/neutered pets, too. 

Having your pet spayed or neutered may also stop or significantly decrease behaviors like roaming in search of a mate, howling, yowling, and spraying. These procedures can ease aggression, as well.
