Eliminates the risk of ovarian and uterine cancer, and greatly reduces risk of mammary tumors.


Eliminates the risk of testicular cancer and decreases the chances for prostate cancer.


Eliminates the risk of Pyometra, a sometimes fatal infection of the uterus.


Reduces and sometimes eliminates certain forms of aggression and can often make your pet more affectionate.


Reduces the tendency of males to roam and fight, which reduces the risk of them getting lost, injured or spreading disease.


Eliminates annoying heat cycles, when animals often act abnormal. Bleeding during heat cycles occurs twice a year in dogs and can last 6-12 days. In cats, the bleeding can last 6-7 days and cats can go through heat 3 or more times a year.


Less unwanted animals ending up in the shelter, where they are often put to sleep due to overpopulation and lack of space.
