Did you know that the benefits of spaying and neutering your cat or dog go way beyond helping to control the pet over-population problem?
It’s true. Spaying and neutering can prevent unwanted health issues and also help you avoid behavioral issues with your pet.

In fact, it’s better for her to not go into heat at all.
