Benefits of Spaying and Neutering Dogs

Spaying and neutering your dog helps reduce the number of dogs entering and euthanized in shelters.

Health Benefits of Spay/Neuter

Spaying a female animal will:

Eliminate complications associated with mating, pregnancy and birth

Completely eliminate the risk of uterine or ovarian cancer

Almost completely eliminate the risk of a life-threatening infection of the uterus called pyometra, which requires emergency surgery

Greatly reduce the risk of breast cancer, especially if she is spayed before her first heat

Neutering a male animal will:

Reduce the risk for injury or death that could occur when dogs escape in search of a mate or fight with other animals

Greatly reduce the risk of prostate infections in male dogs.

Eliminate the risk of testicular cancer

Provide other heath benefits, like reduced risk of benign perianal tumors

Behavior Benefits of Spay/Neuter

Spaying a female animal will:

Eliminate spotting when a dog is in heat

Eliminate the attraction of persistent males looking for a mate

Reduce sexual frustration and stress

Neutering a male animal will:

Reduce or eliminate irritability

Reduce or eliminate annoying behavior like urine marking, spraying and mounting

Reduce the tendency for him to escape and roam in search of a mate

Reduce fighting with other males

Reduce sexual frustration and stress

Financial Benefits of Spay/Neuter

The cost of spay/neuter surgery is less than the cost of having, caring for, and re-homing a litter of puppies.

Caring for a dog with cancer in the reproductive system or pyometra can easily cost thousands of dollars—five to ten times as much as a routine spay or neuter surgery.

Many counties and cities in the Sacramento area require people with unaltered dogs to pay higher license renewal fees.
