PET CARE CORNER | THE WORLD 6 reasons to spay or neuter pets now Upon adopting a companion animal, one of the fi rst decisions pet parents should make, advise veterinarians and animal welfare experts, is to spay or neuter their new friend. Homeless animals are a global problem. Overpopulation continues to plague dogs and cats, and there are as many as 300,000 homeless animals euthanized in animal shelters every year, says The Humane Society of the United States. While many would be quick to assume these are puppies and kittens of “street” animals, the society notes that euthanized animals are often the offspring of family pets — even pure breeds. Spaying females and neutering males is the most effective method of birth control for these popular pets. Preventing unwanted offspring might be the main reason many pet owners spay or neuter their pets. But there are many additional reasons that make spaying and neutering a good decision. 1. The ASPCA says spaying helps prevent uterine infections and breast tumors that are malignant in roughly 50 percent of dogs and 90 percent of cats. Spaying before a cat’s first heat is ideal. 2. USA Today reports that neutered male dogs live 18 percent longer than dogs that were not neutered, while spayed female dogs live 23 percent longer than those that are not spayed. Neutering reduces the instinct to roam and get into trouble, which may contribute to the longer life expectancy. 3. Neutering can help prevent testicular cancer in male pets. 4. Spayed females will not go into heat. During heat, which can occur four to five days at a time every three weeks during mating season, females may yowl and urinate around the house. 5. WebMD says non-neutered male dogs and cats may mark their territory with urine and can be more aggressive during mating seasons. Neutering can help calm the animals. 6. HSUS states that neutering and spaying is the best way to prevent overpopulation and improves the chances that shelter pets will be adopted. Contrary to popular belief, spaying and neutering pets will not cause weight gain. As long as pet parents continue to provide exercise and control their pets’ diets, pets will remain fit and in good health. It’s best to discuss neutering and spaying with a veterinarian to deterine the best time for pets to undergo the procedure. Many cats and dogs can be successfully neutered and spayed at Explore the reasons to purchase pet insurance When it comes to their pets, many pet owners will go to great lengths to ensure the comfort, happiness and health of their animal companions. Advances in veterinary care have helped pets live longer and healthier lives than ever before. An Associated Press survey found that 41 percent of pet owners are extremely or somewhat worried they could not afford the medical bills if their pets became ill. According to the American Pet Products Association, pet owners spend between $220 and $250 per year on average on routine well vet visits for their cats and dogs. But unforseen surgeries and emergencies can set pet owners back several thousand dollars. Some emergencies are far more costly than others. Veterinary Pet Insurance says the average cost for a vet to extract a dog’s tooth is $829. But repairing torn cartilage can cost nearly $2,700. Individuals with elderly pets or breeds prone to genetic disorders may be wise to look into pet insurance to defray some of their vet costs. Keep in mind that pet insurers are allowed to refuse coverage for preexisting conditions and can set annual limits and lifetime payout limits. Here are some reasons why pet insurance can be a worthwhile investment. • Pet insurance typically allows policy holders to choose their own veterinarians. Such policies do not typically mandate that pets be taken to particular doctors to have their costs covered. • Pet insurance allows pet owners to make decisions based on the best interest of the pet and not on their financial situations. • Insurance offers peace of mind because many plans reimburse up to 80 percent after deductibles are met. Some plans even offer multipet discounts. Pet insurance is a relatively new, but growing industry. Veterinary Pet Insurance issued their first policy in 1982. Consumers can now shop around and find the best options for their needs. Pet insurance is an option for pet owners who want to provide for their companion animals. Such insurance can be a sound financial decision that gives pet owners peace of mind. MAX Max came to us when his human's circumstances changed, and Max had no one to care for him. He is a very happy guy, with lots of puppy energy. He's very eager to learn, and is looking for someone to help him learn his manners in a fun, positive way! He already has a beautiful sit, and has learned to hand target ("touch"). We don't have any information about his past interactions with other dogs, cats, or children. If you are looking for a fun dog, one you can learn and grow with, Max could be the guy for you! His adoption fee includes a 6-week Good Manners training class. 1589 VT Rte 14S • East Montpelier • 476-3811 Tues.-Fri. 1pm-5pm, Sat. 10am-4pm GROOMING/PET STORE Pet Boutique & Spa 69 So.
