Spayday! Spayday! Spayday!
It’s Ruger’s big day today. She’s getting spayed! Yay! She’ll be healthier, happier and cleaner, and she won’t have puppies, which creates more unwanted animals that society needs to deal with.
Healthier. Sterilized female animals have fewer mammary tumours and uterine infections and males have less testicular cancer and prostate enlargement.
Happier. Sterilized animals are less likely to bite and fight people and animals, hump your leg and little kids, or bark persistently.
Cleaner. Sterilized animals won’t leave menstrual blood or urine in your home.
There are many myths around sterilization. Pets get fat and lazy because their people feed them too much. You will have a healthier pet if it’s spayed early rather than after her first heat. Children who want to watch the miracle of birth can do that on youtube. For men - your pet is the one being sterilized, not you and your still a man after it’s done. Your pet’s offspring won’t be any more special than those available through rescue organizations and humane societies.
Please do the right thing - spay or neuter your dog - cats too!
