World Spay Day is a coming!
Do you still need to spay or neuter your pooch? Unless you're hoping to expand your family, there's no better time than today to spay/neuter! On top of keeping your family the size that it currently is, there are several health benefits to getting the procedure done.
For one, spaying before your dog's first heat can help prolong their life span, according to ASPCA. How so? Well, spaying can stop breast tumors and even uterine infections from occurring!
Neutering can cut down the urge to roam, according to SpayUSA.com. You may even your dog's behavior improve after the neutering procedure, adds the ASPCA, as un-neutered animals are known to spray. It can even cut down on aggression, according to PetMD.
Of course, this does not mean spaying/neutering is without risks. Always talk with your veterinarian before putting your pooch through the procedure.
And don't forget, World Spay Day is happening on February 23! For more information on this spay-awareness day, visit http://www.humanesociety.org/issues/spay_day/?referrer=https://www.goo
