National Spay Day

  bigstockphoto_High_Five_596095Today is the last Tuesday of February, which means that today is National Spay Day! Many of    you  probably already have your furry friends spayed or neutered, but if you don’t, you’ll want to  know about  all of the benefits of getting your pet fixed. Of course, one of the biggest reasons is  to  control the  homeless pet population. There are millions of homeless pets that live in the  United  States. By spaying  or neutering your pet, you are doing your part to reduce this number.  There are  also many health  factors that should be considered. Dogs and cats that are spayed  and neutered  have a better chance of  living longer lives.  Animals that are fixed have a reduced  risk of  developing certain types of  reproductive cancers such as uterine and mammary gland  cancer, as  well as a reduced risk of  developing pyrometra (an infection of the uterus). Animals  that are  intact have a higher risk of injury due to their tendency towards aggression, due to  mating habits  or due to territorial behaviors. There are so many more great reasons to  spay/neuter your pet. To  learn more, visit the link below.  If you still have questions, please  call us at 813-259-9698, and you can speak to our knowledgeable staff!
