There are many myths surrounding spaying and neutering pets. Test your knowledge!
Myth: My female should have one litter before is spayed.
Fact: There is not information that supports this statement. In fact, spaying your female at a young age can prevent infections of the uterus which may be fatal. Spaying also reduces the risk of mammary cancer, not to mention it eliminates unwanted males from bothering your pet.
Myth: I want my child to witness the miracle of birth.
Fact: Most frequently a female animal will go to a quiet place by herself to have babies or does so at night. It is more important to teach your children about being a responsible pet owner.
Myth: Spaying or neutering my pet will negatively affect its behavior.
Fact: You will see changes in behavior… positive changes! Males are less likely to fight, and they don’t learn the behavior of marking their territory.
Myth: My pet will become lazy and fat after being neutered or spayed.
Fact: The reason pets get fat is usually because they are over fed and under exercised.
