A spaying and neutering procedure entails a surgery that prevents your male and female pets from reproducing. The testicles of the male animal are detached during a neuter surgery. The ovaries and uterus, also known as the reproductive tract, are detached from a female animal during a spaying surgery.
There are countless benefits to spaying and neutering your pet, which is why this practice is so highly recommended. Here are the many benefits of this procedure:
Both cats and dogs can receive spaying or neutering procedures. According to the ASPCA, cats and dogs can receive this procedure at the eight-week mark. Pets are often under anesthesia during a spay and neuter surgery and thus do not feel any pain.
