  • At what age can I have my pet spayed or neutered?

These include decreasing the risk of mammary tumors, decreasing the risk of prostate cancer, eliminating the risk of cystic ovaries and uterine infections, eliminating the risk of testicular and ovarian cancer, helping prevent spraying and marking, reducing the desire to roam, and also decreasing the surplus of unwanted puppies and kittens.
