Spaying Your Female Pet

The ideal age for removal of the ovaries and uterus is 4-6 months of age.

  • Eliminates the risk of ovarian and uterine cancer.
  • Eliminates unwanted pregnancies.
  • If spayed before the first heat cycle, your pet has less than 1 percent chance of developing mammary cancer. If spayed after one heat cycle, your pet has an 8% chance of developing mammary cancer. If spayed after two heat cycles, the risk increases to 26%. After two years, no protective benefit exist.
  • Pets with diabetes or epilepsy should be spayed to prevent hormonal changes that may interfere with medication.

Common Myths:

Spaying your pet does not:

  • Cause laziness or hyperactivity.
  • Reduce it’s instinct to protect your family & home.
  • Cause immature behaviors.
  • Postpone or delay normal behavioral maturity.
  • Alter it’s personality in any manner.
