Why is it important that I neuter my pet?

There are many medical and behavioral benefits to having your pet neutered. Eliminates your pets desire to seek out a female, thereby reducing the risks involved with a free roaming animal (car accidents, etc.) Reduces aggression against other animals. Reduces the risk of prostate problems and testicular tumors later in life. A male dog sensing a female is in heat nearby can break down doors and jump fences in his desire to mate. Lets your pet relax and enjoy being part of the family.
Neuter will make my pet fat… Too much food and not enough exercise are the main causes of obesity.
Neutering will take away the “guard dog” instincts… Neutering does not reduce his ability as either a guard or watch dog. He will still be as protective of his territory as he was before the surgery.
Neuter will hurt him… Neutering is a safe and relatively painless operation done by a licensed veterinarian. Your pet will appreciate the freedom from sexual frustration.  But I can find homes for the puppies or kittens… You may be able to place your puppies or kittens, but are they all good homes? Remember each time you place one of your puppies or kittens, somewhere else an animal is being killed because there was no room for him/ her. Right now in the United States 15 million animals are being euthanized each year.
