Complications That Can Arise if You Do Not Spay or Neuter Your Pets

Many pet owners wrestle with the decision of whether or not they should spay or neuter their pets. Some pet owners may feel that these procedures are not kind, while others fear that these procedures will alter their pet's personality. However, the decision not to spay or neuter your pet may produce negative complications that pet owners should be aware of. If you are looking for affordable spay and neuter services in Laguna Niguel, Spay & Neuter Orange County is ready to assist you.

What to Expect If You Opt-Out

Statistics support the fact that pets that have been spayed or neutered live longer than their unaltered counterparts. This may be due to certain behaviors that most pets exhibit when they are in heat. Pets who are in heat tend to roam and get into fights with other animals. Animals that roam may be hit by cars or suffer injuries due to fighting with other animals.

Certain diseases are also more prevalent among pets that have not been spayed or neutered. Cats, in particular, are prone to a potentially fatal uterine infection called pyometra. Unaltered pets are also more likely to develop other uterine and mammary gland issues as well as cancers of the reproductive system. It should also be noted that un-neutered male pets have a higher risk of developing testicular and prostate cancer.

Less Serious Consequences

It's a well-known fact that pets who haven't been spayed or neutered are more prone to urinating inside. Having your pet altered usually reduces these tendencies, and in some cases, eliminates these behaviors. Neutering has also been shown to curb aggressive behavior, making your pet easier to train. Spaying and neutering also prevent unwanted litters from being born.
