Benefits of Spay/Neuter

Pediatric, or Early Spay/Neuter, refers to spaying or neutering pets at a much earlier age than the old six to nine month standard. With today's anesthetics, advanced monitoring equipment, and surgical techniques, not only are these procedures safe in young puppies and kittens, the risk of complication is lower and the recovery period shorter than in mature pets. Concerns about adverse effects have now been proven unfounded. The American Veterinary Medical Association, the Humane Society of the United States, the Association of Spay/Neuter Veterinarians, are among those that support early spay/neuter.

The reasons for spaying and neutering are compelling:

-Pet overpopulation and the resulting mass euthanasia and neglect.

-It avoids heat cycles, unwelcome visitors, fighting, accidental pregnancies, unwanted puppies and kittens, inconvenience, and expense.

-Males and their owners are spared roaming and fighting, and the resulting injuries, spread of disease, and expenses.

-Better-behaved pets - Neutered and spayed pets rarely spray or mark, roam and fight. 85% of bites involve un-altered male dogs.

-Healthier pets - Neutered males don't develop testicular cancer or prostate problems common in intact dogs. Females spayed before their first heat cycle have 96.4% less mammary cancer, a common cause of death. They have no risk of uterine infection, uterine cancer or the many complications associated with pregnancy, queening, whelping or raising a litter.

Pediatric spay neuter:

-It is safer, recovery time is much faster with pediatric patients. Complications occur less often. It is easer on the pet - anesthesia time is shorter and recovery takes only a few hours.

-HSSA veterinarians have performed thousands of pediatric spay and neuter procedures.

-It completely eliminates the possibility of accidental litters. We daily hear the infamous "I didn't know she'd go in heat so soon," and "she just got out for a few minutes." This list is endless.

Essentially, the bottom line is: early spay and neuter protocols mean fewer unwanted and homeless pets.
