Spay & Neuter in Anchorage
Spay and Neuter
Let the team at Chester Valley Veterinary Hospital spay & neuter your pets. This has many benefits for your individual pet, and for the overall population of pets. The health benefits include, decreased breast cancer, decreased prostate and testicular cancer, and prevention of pyometra (severe infection of the uterus). The behavioral benefits are vast and can include less aggression, fighting, roaming, anxiety, and more. The reproductive organs in wild canines/wolves have yearly cycles. Our domesticated canines have been bred to have more frequent cycles for greater production, and therefore, more profit. This increase may be part of why our domesticated canines have more health related concerns if they are not spayed or neutered. Euthanasia, due to overpopulation, has occurred at a high rate for years and continue every day. In addition to overpopulation concerns, environmental effects are also apparent. The production, packaging, and transportation of pet food and products is taxing on the environment. This overuse of natural resources simply spares the life of a pet at the cost of a wild animal and/or habitat. Some of these pets are being fed and maintained to live a life in a cage. We all love our pets and should be able to enjoy them in our lives. Please consider spaying and neutering.
