Reasons to Neuter Female Pets
- Behavior Control – Female pets experience weird behavior during their seasonal calls. If they are not pregnant, they respond to these active calls and seek male partners. Spaying ensures this behavior does not happen.
- Population control – Female cats neutered before the puberty helps control feline population in the region. Queens can give birth to a much as 3 litters in a year.
- Unwanted Male Attention – Females into season will attract male pets creating a nuisance environment. Caterwauling or fighting can be avoided through spaying.
- Welfare issues – Large number of puppies and kittens cannot be given proper attention. They cannot enjoy a good standard of living. Moreover, they suffer from infectious diseases. The adoption chances decrease subsequently as well.
- Health issues – Unneutered female cats are prone to womb infection (pyometra) and mammary tumors. These infections are passed onto kittens also. Puppies are also prone to infectious diseases in the early days. Ovarian diseases are prevented much more effectively after spaying.
- Genetic Disease Control – Spaying ensures the defective genes are not carried over to the successive generations. Genetic control can also be monitored better.
- Wildlife issues – Female cats mother to kittens are likely to hunt more to feed its offspring. Spaying prevents such hunting characteristics. The same goes for female dogs as well.
Also known as desexing or sterilizing, spaying refers to the surgical removal of internal reproductive organs of a female dog. In this operation, the ovaries, uterine horns and Fallopian tubes are removed. Basically, those parts of female reproduction system responsible for fetus development, egg production, embryo and hormone secretion are removed.Other vital organs related to the anatomy are not harmed during the surgery. Ovarian related diseases such as ovarian cancer, uterine cancer, bacterial infection, metritis, mucometra, Pyometron, endomtritis or polycystic ovaries can be prevented. The health benefits are significant to ignore.
It is a similar spaying procedure performed on cats aimed at removing their reproductive organs. Here too, the veterinarians perform surgery to remove Fallopian tubes, ovaries, uterine horns and a part of cat’s uterine body. This prevents egg production and fetal development. Female hormone Estrogen production organs are removed which further lowers the behavioral issues associated with the hormone. Cat behavioral traits such as calling males, roaming, fighting are also resolved.
Post surgery the spayed pets must be allowed to recover in isolation. Dietary requirements must be matched as per normal routine. Prevent excessive movement as this may cause stress on organs. Also avoid bathing the pet for at least 10 days after surgery. Napa Valley Animal Hospital performs pet spaying surgeries after full health consultation.
