There are a number of myths associated with Spaying and Neutering and today we will be countering some of these myths, and hence without further ado, let’s take a look at some of them.
It’s better to have one litter before spaying a female pet:
Medical evidence indicates the opposite to hold true, many vets hence sterilize cats as young as eight weeks old. Research shows female pets spayed before their first heat are particularly healthier.
It’s a miracle of birth:
Yes that might hold true, but that is quickly overshadowed by the fact that millions of animals are euthanized in pet shelters and hence it is much better to spay and neuter your pet.
My Pets A Purebred:
Evidence suggests that there are at least 1 in every 4 purebreds bought to animal shelters on a daily basis, and hence you must realize the fact that there are just too many cats and dogs roaming around mother earth, and not all of them share the possibility of getting a nice home and a loving family.
My Dog should be protective
Raging hormones have nothing to do with a dog being protective; in fact dog’s protective instincts by and large come from his genetics and his upbringing amongst other things, and more often than not it is a naturally instinct.
I don’t want my Dog or cat to feel less of a male
These is a flawed perception as dogs don’t have an identity crisis or feel any sort of emotional trauma, and for the most part he will still be happy wagging his tail and playing around.
Neutering and spaying is expensive:
No it can be quite affordable as well, if you want low cost spaying and neutering and reside in Houston Texas I suggest you go to Pet Vet Animal Hospital. In fact many shelters now include the cost in their adoption fee.
Each of The Puppies And Kittens Will Find Good Homes
More often than not this is wishful thinking , and let’s suppose that you manage to find good homes for your puppies and kittens , what will happen is they will keep multiplying, till someone gets careless, and personally speaking you can’t really account for how the other people will treat the said puppy or kitten. Hence I feel that neutering and spaying are possibly the best thing you can do for your pet.
