- Female pets that have been spayed eliminate the risk for pyometra (a dangerous life threatening infection found in the uterus) and other cancers found in the reproductive system.
- Male pets that have been neutered avoid testicular cancer and it has been shown that their risk of prostate cancer is greatly reduced.

Which in turn decreases the risk of being struck by a car, fighting with other animals, and being stolen.
Unaltered pets are much more assertive and prone to urine marking than altered pets. Although it is most often common in male pets, females can do it too. Spaying/Neutering your pets decreases the urge to urine mark and may stop it altogether.
Studies have shown that majority of dog bite incidents are because the pets are unaltered.
ALL PETS IN SHELTERS CAME FROM UNALTERED PETS
As silly as that statement sounds, it is true! Spaying/Neutering pets decreases the number of unwanted pets being euthanize in shelters everyday. Refer to the chart below as an example how quickly two unaltered pets can multiply within a small time frame.
