Benefits of spaying a cat
Spaying a cat is a smart choice as a caring and responsible pet owner, as it can help them live longer, healthier lives. This is because spaying greatly reduces the risk of breast tumors and uterine infections. Spayed female cats will also not go into heat, which means less urinating and “yowling” during this time.
There are several myths about spaying a cat. First, spaying does not cause pets to gain weight. Diet and lifestyle affect weight. Monitoring food intake and ensuring your pet gets enough activity every day can prevent weight gain. Second, spaying doesn’t fix behavioral issues. It is important to work with a trainer if you are having difficulties with your pet’s behavior. Third, spaying does not increase their risk of cancer. It does, in fact, reduce it. As stated above, there are many medical benefits to spaying a cat in addition to just reducing the chance of pregnancy and unwanted kittens.
