Health Benefits of Spay/Neuter
The serious and expensive possibility that your pet will develop cancer, tumors, or infections of the reproductive organs is completely eliminated because these organs are removed.
Females: Dogs come into heat approximately twice each year. Cats can come into heat every few weeks. During this heat cycle your dog can become pregnant. Spaying your female eliminates the possibility of pregnancy and the dangers associated with giving birth because those organs are removed. If you spay your pet before the first heat cycle the chance that it will develop mammary tumors is drastically reduced (mammary tumors appear in dogs approx. 50% of unspayed dogs and only 1% in spayed dogs.
Males: Neutering males eliminates many health problems as your pet ages, including prostate enlargement (occurs in approx. 60% of unneutered dogs), prostate tumors and infections, tumors of the testacies, penile and anal area and perinea hernias.
If you love animals consider that spaying and neutering also helps to prevent the euthanasia of other animals by reducing the number of litters born. Puppies and kittens that YOU breed take away homes from other deserving animals. And if you can’t find homes for all of your litter, they end up here at the shelter.
Please be responsible and spay or neuter your pet today!
What is a Microchip?
A microchip is a small electronic device, about the size of a grain of rice that emits a radio signal when a scanner is passed over it. Each microchip contains a unique ID number. The microchip is injected under the skin of your pet between the shoulder blades. The process is similar to receiving a vaccination and only takes a few seconds.
After the chip is implanted, the ID number is registered along with your contact information and emergency contacts information. If your animal becomes lost, it can be scanned to determine the unique ID your animal has been assigned. This person can then call the Microchip hotline and report the number. The hotline person will then contact you or the emergency contact, this information is not given out to the public. And now you can be reunited with your pet.
Though collars and tags are very important, dogs often are lost because they have slipped out of their collars or the tags have fallen off. Microchips provide a way for your animal to always carry permanent identification.
