These coupons offer reduced pricing on spay/neuter surgeries for dogs, cats and young male pigs.
WHY SPAY AND NEUTER
There are many medical and behavioral benefits in having your dog or cat spayed/neutered:
1. EASIER FOR YOU
• Usually stops tomcats from “spraying” foul smelling urine.
• Reduces the annoying and embarrassing urge of male dogs to “mount” people’s legs.
• Reduced dog license fees will quickly cover the cost of the operation.
• Eliminates the frantic pacing and crying while in heat.
2. HEALTHIER FOR YOUR PET
• Eliminates the problems and risks of pregnancy and birth.
• Without the urge to seek out females your pet runs fewer risks associated with free roaming animals. (Hit by cars, fighting etc.)
• Reduces the risk of prostate problems and testicular tumors in males later in life.
• Reduces the possibility of mammary tumors, breast and uterine cancer in females.
3. REDUCES THE OVERPOPULATION PROBLEM
• One male running loose for just a few hours can impregnate many females, adding to the serious problem of unwanted puppies and kittens.
• Rids you of the worry of what to do with the unplanned litters of puppies and kittens.
4. ELIMINATES SEXUAL FRUSTRATION
• A frustrated male can break down doors and jump fences in his desire to mate.
• A spayed or neutered pet is a more relaxed and loyal member of your family.
• Neutering will take away the “guard dog” instincts. NOT TRUE
Neutering a dog does not reduce his ability as a guard dog. He will still be as protective of his territory as he was before the surgery.
• Neutering will make him fat. NOT TRUE
Neutering does not make your pet fat or lazy. Too much food and not enough exercise Is the main cause of obesity.
• Neutering will hurt him. NOT TRUE
Neutering is a safe and relatively painless operation done by a licensed veterinarian. Your pet will appreciate the freedom from sexual frustration.
• She should have one litter first. NOT TRUE
It is actually healthier for her NOT to have a litter or heat period before being spayed.
• I will find homes for my puppies or kittens. NOT TRUE
You may be able to place your puppies or kittens, but are they all “good” homes?
Remember, each time you place one from your litter, somewhere else an animal is being killed because there was no home for him.
Have a pot bellied pig? Tails can help you with your male piglet too!
Why neuter your pot bellied pig? Far beyond the need to control the overpopulation and the cruelty and abuse that overpopulation causes, are the health and living condition problems caused by not altering these animals.
Un-neutered male pigs become sexually active at about two months old and you do NOT want an un-neutered male pig as a pet! Believe us. They will want to hump everything in site, they have a bad musk type odor and can be quite aggressive towards both the female pigs and humans.
Neutered males have a lower chance of developing prostate infections. They won't develop testicular cancers. They will no longer have that musk smell.
Males can be neutered as early as one month old. But it is best to wait until they have a little weight on them. 8 to 12 weeks is the usual time or when the piglet weighs in at about 10 to 12 lbs.
We can make the choice to be part of the problem or part of the solution. Let's ALL try to be "part of the solution".
