Benefits of Spaying and Neutering

  • Population control - Spaying and neutering your pet can help prevent unwanted pet pregnancies and keep the pet population in Winter Garden at a minimum. This will help ensure that each pet has a proper home and a place to go.

  • Keep animals out of shelters - Spaying and neutering can help keep pets out of shelters, thus preventing pets from being euthanized.

  • Disease prevention - In addition to the population control benefits, spaying or neutering your pet can help your pet avoid certain diseases. Pets that are spayed or neutered before they reach sexual maturity are less likely to contract diseases like breast cancer and testicular cancer.

  • Spayed and neutered pets live longer - Spaying and neutering your pet can actually increase your pet's lifespan, because your pet is less likely to contract the diseases mentioned above.

  • Neutered pets are less likely to wander from home - Some adult male pets go looking for adult females when they reach a certain age. Pets that have been neutered are less likely to go searching for other animals, and therefore are less likely to leave home on their own.

  • Neutered pets have less aggression - Pets who have been neutered will be less aggressive. This can make your pet a better family animal, which could be especially important if there are young children living in your house.

  • Spayed and neutered pets behave better - Pets in heat or who are searching for mates may yowl and spray urine in their territory, even inside your house.

When to Spay and Neuter with our Winter Garden Veterinarian

The best time to spay or neuter your pet is before your pet reaches approximately six months old. When you bring your new pet into our animal hospital for a visit with our veterinarian, they will be able to determine the best time to complete your pet's procedure. However, your pet can be spayed or neutered at any time, even if your pet is older. Your pet may not get all the disease prevention benefits if he or she is spayed at an older age, but your pet will still be protected from unwanted pregnancies.
