Why Spay and Neuter?

Whether the cat is an indoor cat, a free-roaming cat or a community cat, getting them spayed or neutered is the right thing to do. Not only does it help control feline overpopulation, but it’s one of the best things you can do for your cat’s overall health and well-being. Read on to discover the many benefits of spaying and neutering cats.

The Benefits of Spaying and Neutering:

Did you know one unspayed cat can have up to 3 litters of kittens per year? Spay/neuter can help prevent unwanted litters, shelter overcrowding and, most importantly, lives lost due to euthanasia. 

Neutered male cats are less likely to spray urine and mark their territory and fight with other cats. Spayed female cats won’t go into heat, which will help eliminate yowling and calling on male suitors.

Spayed and neutered cats are generally better behaved. They’re less likely to bite or display aggressive behavior with humans, other cats and animals.

Cats that like to escape and roam away from home often are on the hunt for a mate. By getting your cat spayed or neutered, they’re less likely to have the urge to roam.

Getting your female cat spayed can greatly reduce her risk of cervical cancer and eliminate risk of ovarian cancer. Also, when cats don’t have the urge to fight over mates and territory, they’re less likely to come in contact with certain viruses or suffer from fighting injuries.

Spayed and neutered cats tend to live longer compared to cats that aren’t. Why? All the reasons above! 

Give your cat or your community cat an extra paw up on life. Schedule an appointment with your vet or find a spay/neuter clinic in Greater Cincinnati or Dayton.
