There are 5 key benefits of spaying or neutering your dog:
Both spaying and neutering involve the surgical sterilization of an animal under general anesthesia.
Technically known as an ovariohysterectomy, spaying removes a female's reproductive organs - the ovaries, and generally the uterus. This means your female cat or dog will be unable to produce litters.
Neutering, or orchiectomy, removes the testicles and is considered a simpler surgery than a spay for your male dog or cat. This means your pet will be unable to reproduce.
Healthy cats and dogs can be spayed or neutered at any age, but the standard age to spay or neuter a kitten is about 5 to 6 months. Puppies are usually neutered at 6 to 9 months.
