Spay or Neuter Services

Did you know over 1.5 million cats and dogs are euthanized each year due to overpopulation and overcrowded shelters? Sadly, there are just not enough homes available for all the dogs and cats out there who need one. Thankfully, that number has been steadily decreasing since 2011 and Companion Animal Medical Centre would love to see the numbers continue to go down.

Spaying your female pet or neutering your male pet does more than help to control pet overpopulation, it can greatly improve the life of both you and your pets. 

Additional health benefits of sterilization include a longer lifespan, reduced risk of mammary gland and prostrate issues, protection from testicular and uterine cancer, no heat cycles or roaming behavior, and less aggressive behavior by both males and females.

Spay or Neuter Your Dog or Cat

If you do not plan to breed your dog or cat, the responsible thing to do is spay or neuter your pet.  Along with all the noted benefits, you also won’t have to worry about unexpected babies entering your family! Puppies and kittens may be adorable, but they’re also expensive and require a lot of extra care, especially when they were a surprise! 

9 Reasons to Spay or Neuter Your Cat or Dog

  1. Your female pet will live longer and healthier life and will avoid potential health risks like uterine cancer.
  2. Male pets experience major benefits from neutering such as being protected from testicular cancer and a lower risk of prostrate issues.
  3. You no longer have to worry about your female cat going into heat, and you’ll never be surprised by an unexpected litter of kittens.
  4. Your pets will be as handsome as ever. Spaying or neutering causing weight gain is a myth! 
  5. Both male dogs and cats are less likely to stray from their home and wander.
  6. Male pets behave much better after neutering. It can be especially helpful for anxious or aggressive males.
  7. Highly cost-effective compared to caring for several little bundles of furry joy!
  8. It is better for our community as a whole. 
  9. It helps prevent overpopulation and euthanasia of dogs and cats without homes.  
  • Having your female cat or dog spayed reduces their risk of developing breast tumors, which are malignant or cancerous in 50% of dogs and 90% of cats. 
  • Neutering your male cat prevents unwanted behavior such as urine marking, roaming, fighting, and aggression.
  • Pets are much safer when they're at home. Spaying or neutering helps prevent roaming behavior, making it far more likely your pets  will stick close to home and be easier to locate in the unfortunate event they're lost.
  • Kittens as young as 8 weeks old can be safely neutered or spayed, completely preventing your female cat from ever going into heat or your male cat from urine spraying.
  • Having your pet spayed or neutered is much more cost effective than taking care of an unexpected litter of kittens.
  • The number of both cats and dogs euthanized each year has been decreasing in part to spay and neuter campaigns. We'd love to see this continue!
  • Your pets will be as sleek as ever! The idea that having your pet spayed or neutered will make them overweight is a myth.
