Behavioral Benefits of Spaying and Neutering
Spaying and neutering can help companion animals live longer, healthier lives, and it can also make them better pets. With less urge to roam, spayed and neutered pets are more manageable and less likely to bolt or run off.
Removing an animal’s reproductive abilities reduces or eliminates hormone-related behavioral issues, such as aggression and mounting people or other animals. Neutering males helps reduce spraying and marking territory. When pets are not distracted by hormonal urges, it is easier to get their attention and they are more responsive and easier to train.
