The Pet Shop strongly believes in promoting responsible pet ownership. A big part of that is encouraging new puppy or kitten parents to have their pet spayed or neutered as soon as he/she is old enough. This helps keep your pet healthy and safe and prevents unplanned and unwanted litters. Dogs and cats live longer. In females reduces the risk of ovarian cancer or other problems. In males helps prevent testicular and prostate cancer. It also helps curb undesirable behavior in males such as mounting, aggression towards people or other animals and helps eliminate the urge to “mark” indoor territory.
