The benefits of spaying or neutering include:
- Reduced risk of developing cancer.
- Less likelihood of running off in search of a mate.
- Lowered levels of aggression, leading to better odds of finding and keeping a home.
- Reduced numbers of unwanted pets.
- Reduced spraying/marking behaviors.
- Prevention of going into heat, bleeding, and yowling.
- Improved health and increased life span.
