Pet sterilisation

At what point should you get your cat or dog spade or neutered? Well, it all depends on whether or you’re ready to have kittens/puppies. If you’re not ready, having new offspring can be a real burden: you need to find homes for them and then there’s always the logistical issue of their tearing around your house. Generally, vets advise you to get your animal spayed/neutered at one year old. Some owners of male pets, however, insist that neutering their pets changes their (the pet’s) disposition - probably something to do with less testosterone flowing through their body. Generally, neutering is far less complex than spaying. But either way, if you’re not ready to handle the responsibility and extra chores of having little offspring around your home, you should not delay in sterilizing your pet.
