Today’s widespread animal overpopulation is a direct effect of the failure of many pet owners to spay or neuter their pets. With myths such as behavioral changes and health complications resulting from the procedure circulating, it can be difficult to tell if spaying/neutering is the right choice for Fido or Fluffy. In order to save millions of homeless animals’ lives, as well as keep your animal in the best health possible, these myths should be put to rest once and for all.
It is a popular misconception that spaying or neutering your pet can negatively affect their health or even alter their personality. “In addition to helping to reduce pet overpopulation, spaying or neutering your pet reduces and can even eliminate the risk of hormone-associated cancer and diseases,” said Dr. Bethany Schilling, clinical instructor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. “It may also reduce or eliminate unwanted behavioral problems associated with sex hormones.”
