The health benefits for your pets being spayed or neutered cannot be overstated, according to Dr. Jordan Kobilca of Door County Veterinary Hospital and Luxemburg Pet Clinic. Dr. Jordan says the cost of the procedure is well worth the investment.
Dr. Jordan says typically dogs and cats should be neutered between the age of five months and a year depending on their size. According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, spaying helps prevent uterine infections and breast tumors, which are malignant or cancerous in about 50 percent of dogs and 90 percent of cats.
