Both procedures have their upsides. Spaying adds years to your little friend’s life and neutering will curb those raging hormones that are often at the root of most fits of naughtiness. Consider spaying or neutering your little friend a bit of an attitude adjustment as well. Your male dog won’t heed the call of the wild in pursuit of some tail. Your pretty kitty won’t drive you or your neighbors crazy with its incessant wailing when she is in heat, which, by the way, happens once a month and lasts anywhere from 3 to 5 days. In both instances, the animal’s instincts to mark territory and other aggressive behavior is curbed significantly.
Not to mention both procedures are wholly affordable. In an effort to curb the growing number of strays, government-funded programs have been established throughout the country. To give you an idea of what could happen if strays are not kept in check by spaying, an estimated 420,000 kittens can stem from one cat and her offspring in a seven year period. Talk about exponential growth.
Not only will you be combating overpopulation by having your pets spayed or neutered, you will also be saving on the expenses associated with caring for a litter. If you are interested in having the procedure performed on your little friend, Vegas residents can turn to the Las Vegas Humane Society or Heaven Can Wait Society for low cost surgery. As Bob Barker of “Price Is Right” fame would say, “Help control the pet population. Have your pet spayed or neutered.”
