Spay It Forward: The Benefits of Spaying and Neutering (With Spanish Subtitles)



'Spay' It Forward: How Spaying and Neutering Save Pets' Lives

Same Pet Personality – and Better Behavior

ASPCAcat

Sterilization surgery can also have positive behavioral effects. For example, the end of testosterone production means that males are less likely to mark their presence with urine and to leave home in search of female animals, which can be dangerous.

They may also have fewer conflicts with other male dogs, as well as less interest in sexually mounting dogs, people, or objects. Some studies also suggest that neutering can decrease aggression toward other male dogs.

Despite myths to the contrary, spaying and neutering have no effect on an animal’s personality, weight, or interest in playing, working, or being friendly. In terms of disposition, the same animal that goes in comes out.

A Simple Surgery

Although these are surgical procedures, their necessity across the country has created an urgency to make them simply, quick, and affordable. If you have pets in need of spay and neuter services – or know someone who does – contact your local veterinarian or shelter. (While the recommended age for spay/neuter procedures is between 6 and 9 months, puppies as young as 8 weeks old can be neutered as long as they’re healthy.)

ASPCAdogMany shelters do these procedures in their facilities, and some have mobile units where you can drop off and pick up your animal at a convenient location.

Even if your shelter doesn’t offer medical procedures to the public, they can refer you to a local agency that does, typically for a low cost. You can also find affordable spay and neuter services through sites like Spay USA and our own ASPCA Spay/Neuter Database, created through our partnership with PetSmart Charities.

As always, the best way to stop a problem is to prevent it from happening in the first place. So however you go about it, protect your pets by having them spayed or neutered, and encourage your friends and family to do the same.

Jed Rogers, DVM, is the senior vice president of Animal Health Services at the ASPCA.
