Veterinary Care in Oahu Involves Spaying and Neutering Pets

Responsible pet owners know that in order to improve the lives and the health of their pets, they need to have them spayed and/or neutered. This is important, because there are just too many unwanted cats and dogs out there, and they usually end up in shelters, where they either wait for months and months to be adopted, or are euthanized to make room for more stray animals. When pet owners have their pets spayed and neutered, they are taking responsibility for their pets, and not adding to the unwanted pet population.

Veterinary Oahu care should always begin with spaying and neutering pets, unless of course this has already been done before acquiring the pets. There are several reasons why this is important, including:

Female pets live longer, healthier lives. Without being spayed, they can develop a number of health problems, including uterine infections and breast cancer, which is fatal in about 90% of cats that have it and 50% of dogs that have it.

Male pets that are neutered are less likely to develop testicular cancer. To prevent this disease, neutering must be done before the animal is six months old.

Pets will be less likely to roam when they have been spayed and neutered. This is going to protect them from many things, including traffic, other animals, and the humans that are not-so-nice to them.

Neutered males are better behaved. They don’t tend to be as aggressive if they are neutered when they are puppies, and they don’t take up other bad habits un-neutered males do, such as marking territory in the home.

Spaying, neutering, and other veterinary care in Oahu can be taken care of by the professionals at The Honolulu Pet Clinic. The expert vets can explain the process of spaying and neutering, and can give more information about the many benefits of having this done for pets. They will do everything they can to make sure pets and their owners are comfortable, and that pet owners understand all of the after-care procedures that need to be done in order to ensure that their pets heal from the surgery quickly.
