WHY DO WE REQUIRE YOUR PUPPY BE SPAYED/NEUTERED?

 

There are many benefits to spaying/neutering your dog. Altering your pet will increase his/her chance of a longer and healthier life. It will increase his life an average of 1 to 3 years. Altered animals have a very low to no risk of mammary gland tumor/cancer, prostate cancer, perianal tumors, pyometia, uterine, overian and testicular cancers.

*Surveys indicate that as many as 85% of dogs hit by a car are unaltered*!!!!
