Cat & Dog Spay and Neuter in Edgewater Chicago, IL
It might seem cruel to take away your pet’s natural ability to mate and procreate. However, pet spay and neuter surgeries actually do them, and the local Edgewater pet community, a world of good. Firstly, it helps cut down on the problem of animal overpopulation. Too many unwanted dogs and cats overflow shelters and are subsequently put down. More sterilized pets means we can better control the population and ensure only responsible breeding is done. Secondly, pets who undergo sterilization have a greater chance at a long and fulfilling life as they avoid the risk of many medical maladies. Finally, their behavior changes give you peace of mind and help keep them out of harm’s way.
