As cute as these pregnant animals may seem, it’s important to consider the option of sterilizing your pet. Doing so not only helps combat the pet homelessness crisis, as millions of healthy dogs and cats are put down each year due to a lack of available homes, but also provides numerous health and behavioral benefits.

Spaying and neutering your pets have numerous health and behavior benefits. By spaying your female pet, you can help ensure she leads a longer, healthier life. This procedure prevents uterine infections and significantly reduces the likelihood of developing malignant breast tumors in dogs (by 50%) and cats (by 90%) if done before the first heat. On the other hand, neutering your male pet helps prevent testicular cancer and prostate issues.

Next, let’s discuss the behavioral benefits of spaying and neutering your pets. By spaying your female pet, she will no longer go into heat. For example, feline females typically go into heat every three weeks for four to five days during the breeding season. During this time, they may yowl and urinate more frequently, sometimes even inside the house, in their efforts to attract mates.

On the other hand, neutering your male pet can reduce his likelihood of roaming from home. An unneutered male may be driven to find a mate, even if it means escaping and putting himself in danger from traffic or fights with other animals. Furthermore, neutered pets are less likely to mark their territory by spraying urine inside the house. Neutering may also decrease humping behavior towards other dogs, people, or objects and can prevent certain forms of aggression.

If you’re considering becoming a pet parent, it’s important to prepare your home for your new furry friend. Shauna Spooner, a vet nurse at PDSA, advises creating a calm environment for your pet’s arrival. New places can be frightening for pets, so a calming plug-in diffuser or a peaceful setting can help them feel less stressed. Spooner suggests, «Think about how your pet might feel in a new environment and try to make their transition as smooth as possible.»

«Give them an area that is theirs,» advises the vet nurse. «It’s important to make sure they have somewhere they can go to be alone if they need to.» She suggests setting up a den with a familiar blanket or toy to provide comfort for your pet.
«Even if a pet has been previously house trained, having a few accidents in their new environment is to be expected,» she says. «Don’t get angry with them as this will make them feel confused and even more worried.»

«If you plan to give your new pet freedom to explore your home some or all of the time, introduce them to it slowly,» says Spooner. «Your pet will need time to relax and settle in, so limit them to one or two rooms at a time. Take it slowly and give them time to get used to everything.»
Pets thrive on routine, so establishing a schedule as soon as possible is important. «The sooner you do this, the sooner your pet will settle in,» says Spooner. «Try to feed them around the same time every day and keep to a regular exercise regime.»
Finally, keep your pet indoors, especially at the beginning. According to Spooner, «With cats, for example, you will need to keep them indoors for around six weeks to give them a chance to settle in and get used to the house.»
