Thousands of unwanted dogs are put to sleep every year in the Washoe County area. Spaying and neutering your dog will not only help control the increase of the dog population in the area but it will also reduce the risk of serious diseases in your dog.
In addition to saving lives, spaying and neutering can also drastically improve your dog’s health and life expectancy. Spaying your dog reduces the risk of uterine and ovarian cancer and greatly reduces the risk of breast cancer. Neutering a male reduces the risk of both prostate enlargement and prostate cancer. Neutering also will make your pet calmer and in most cases less aggressive.
As a pet owner, having your dog spayed or neutered is a responsibility. It’s good for your dog, you, and the community.
