What is spay/ neuter?
Both spay and neuter procedures are common surgeries that are performed by your veterinarian while your pet is under anesthesia. Animals are spayed (female) and neutered (male) by surgically removing their reproductive organs. Depending on your pet’s age, size, and health, full recovery takes anywhere from a few hours to a few days.
Spaying and neutering has both health and behavioral advantages for your pet. It lowers the risk of developing several types of cancers and your pet will be calmer and less prone to unwanted behaviors.
Spaying and neutering is also a pro-active solution to the community problem of pet overpopulation. By preventing litters, you are doing your part to reduce the number of homeless pets on Maui.
Spaying and Neutering benefits you.
The cost of your pet’s spay or neuter surgery is less than the cost of having and caring for a litter. Your pet will feel less compelled to roam, fight and mark its territory. Not only that, but your pet will be less distracted by trying to mate, and more attentive to their human families.
Spaying and neutering does more than improve your quality of life and the life of your pet. It improves your community and saves lives.
The Truth About Spay/Neuter
Contrary to what you may have heard there is no downside to spaying and neutering your pet! Here are some common misconceptions about this humane procedure:
Myth: My pet should have at least one litter before being spayed.
Myth: Neutering my pet will make him less of a male.
Myth: Spaying or neutering will make my pet fat and lazy.
Myth: I don't need to neuter my male because he isn't the one having litters.
