Pet Care Ft Myers | Spaying & Neutering

Fort Myers humane societies, animal rescue groups, animal shelters, veterinarians, and informed pet owners are nearly unanimous in their support for the early spaying and neutering of dogs and cats. Local animal shelters are overwhelmed with excessive overpopulation throughout the animal rescue system, both government and private organizations are struggling with overcrowding in their facilities and diminishing budgets.

The ideal age for spaying and neutering is 3 to 5 months?

The #1 cause of death among companion animals is euthanasia.

Dogs are 15 times more prolific and cats are 45 times more prolific than humans.

Neutered dogs live 1 to 3 years longer on average and cats live 3 to 5 years longer.

80% of all fights and animals hit by cars are intact male dogs.

Spayed females do not have heat cycles, therefore males will not be attracted.

Intact female dogs over 6 years of age have a 66% chance of developing pyometra (infected uterus).

Intact male dogs over 6 years of age have a 60% chance of developing prostititis.

Risk of mammary gland tumours, ovarian and/or uterine cancer is reduced or eliminated, especially if done before the first heat cycle.
