So Why Snip?
BENEFITS OF SPAYING AND NEUTERING
One of the most important health decisions you’ll make for your pet is whether to spay or neuter. Choosing to have your pet “fixed” can be the single best decision you make for his or her long term welfare.
Spaying refers to the removal of the ovaries and uterus of a female pet. It’s a veterinary procedure that is commonly performed and offers lifelong health benefits. Spaying lowers a pet's risk of developing breast cancer, which is fatal in 90% of cats and in 50% of dogs. It also prevents life-threatening uterine infections. Neutering is the removal of the testicles in a male pet, which will markedly improve your male dog or cat’s behavior and keep him close to home. The risk of testicular disease is eliminated and prostate diseases are dramatically decreased. Your pet’s quality of life is improved with this simple surgery.
Your spayed or neutered pets are less likely to roam, therefore they are less likely to run away, become injured or end up lost. Spaying and neutering can also prevent fights between pets and between others. Fights can result in deep wounds, infection and injury to you or your pet. Neutered males tend to be less aggressive towards both animals and people, especially if neutered at an early age. Best of all, your beloved dog or cat’s life can be extended with this simple procedure. It is the best choice for their long term health and happiness.
Approximately 36,000 homeless or surrendered animals enter our county’s shelter (Miami-Dade Animal Services) every year. Not even half those animals are adopted. Tragically, nearly 20,000 healthy sweet pets who would have made great companions are euthanized because there are not enough adopting homes in South Florida. This fact often surprises people. These are not just the offspring of homeless street animals — these are the puppies and kittens of cherished family pets and even purebreds. Spay/neuter is the most effective method of birth control for dogs and cats, and helps tremendously in lowering the number of animals euthanized annually in our community.
Spaying and neutering your pets is good for your pet, good for you, and good for the community. For all these reasons, we established Project PetSnip. It is important to us to help your pet, you, and our community.
