Spayed and Neutered Pets live a healthier and longer life!
At Riverside Veterinary Clinic, we believe in the importance of spaying and neutering puppies and kittens to provide them with a long and healthy life.
Spaying or neutering your pet will reduce common problems such as:
- Pyometra or uterine infection, is a potentially life-threatening condition which can cost a lot to treat. Occurrence is %100 preventable if your pet is spayed.
- Over one half of all mammary tumors are malignant and can spread to other areas of the body. Early spaying, prior to your pet beginning its heat cycles, significantly reduces the incidence of tumor formation.
- Testicular cancer can be eliminated and prostatitis can be greatly reduced with early neutering.
- Unwanted behavioral problems such as dominance aggression, marking territory and wandering can be avoided with early spaying/neutering.
