When should I have my dog or cat altered? Will this change my pet's personality?

Posted in Small Animal

Spaying or neutering for cats and dogs is recommended at six months of age. This seems to be the best time to prevent future reproductive organ related health problems such as uterine, ovarian, and mammary infections and cancers, prostatic disease and testicular disease and cancer. Neutering will help prevent a pet's desire to roam (looking for a mate) and may also decrease aggressive tendencies, but will not change your pet in any other way.
