Why You Should Spay and Neuter Pets

Millions of unwanted pets are put down every year. You can be a responsible pet owner by having your cat or dog spayed/neutered. Please consider doing your part to help the community of Indianapolis. Spay and neuter procedures prevent unwanted births and may also reduce many behavioral problems associated with the instinct to mate.

After your pet is spayed, their heat cycles are eliminated. After your pet is neutered, their breeding instinct is minimized. This makes them much more calm, less likely to roam, and content with staying home.

There are some serious health problems you can help protect your female pet from by spaying early. Breast cancer and uterine infections are two of them. Neutering your male dog or cat can lower the risk of developing an enlarged prostate gland and testicular cancer.
