Because your pet’s health and needs matter, you may consider dental health and a neuter procedure for your pet. Today we will discuss the many benefits of considering neutering and dental health procedures for your pet, and how a vet clinic can make these procedures easier on all of you.
Why Neutering Your Pet is a Good Option
There are many benefits of neutering your pet. According to the American Pets Products Association, between 2015-2016, 86% of dogs and 90% of cats were spayed or neutered thanks to the decision of their owners. One of the many reasons why neutering is so beneficial is because of overpopulation of pet animals and nowhere for them to call home. A fertile dog has an average of two litters a year, while one unswayed female car has about 4,948 kittens in 7 years. Spaying and neutering your pet is really the only 100% effective form of birth control amongst cats and dogs.
You should always consider neutering for your pet because it has been known to lower their chances of aggression toward other animals. The process is quite simple for an experienced veterinarian and you should consider doing so at the right time. Kittens and puppies are typically spayed or neutered when they reach two months old, as cats and dogs as young as five months old are usually able to have babies.
Dental Care for Your Pet
You should also consider the proper dental care for your pet to keep them happy and healthy. Oral disease is one of the most diagnosed issues among pets in America. You take care of your own teeth but, for your pets, they are typically “out of sight, out of mind.” However, just as with humans, dental disease can wreak havoc on an entire body, affecting the other organs in the body and causing serious problems in the future of your pet’s life.
Did you know that, by 3 years of age, about 80% of dogs and 70% of cats have periodontal disease already? About 90% of the surface of your pet’s teeth can be reached just by brushing alone. Remember to care for your pet in all aspects. The teeth are an integral part of your puppy or kitty’s health and should never be avoided.
