Neutering offers several health and behavioral benefits.

Neutering for Dogs and Cats in Pepperell

Neutering is the common term used to describe castration, a surgical procedure in which both of a pet’s testicles are removed. This is done to prevent dogs and cats from reproducing. In addition to preventing them from contributing to the overwhelming pet overpopulation problem, having your dog or cat neutered offers several health and behavioral benefits. 

We recommend neutering for most of our patients here at Preventive Veterinary Medicine Clinic. If you would like to have your cat or dog neutered in Pepperell, we are here for you and encourage you to contact us as soon as possible to schedule an appointment.

Advantages of Having Your Pet Neutered

Having your pet neutered ensures that they won’t reproduce. Doing so also eliminates the urge to reproduce. This means that neutered males are much less likely to roam in pursuit of a mate, howl, yowl, or display territorial behavior. Neutering also eases some forms of aggression and makes an animal less likely to have separation anxiety or fearful elimination. 
Removing the testicles eliminates the risk of testicular cancer, which is one of the most common types of cancer in unneutered animals. It also lowers the risk of prostate infections and enlargement. Neutering reduces the risk of illnesses related to hormones, as well. Neutered animals tend to live happier and healthier lives than their unaltered counterparts.
