“It is better to have one litter first”

Now that you know about the benefits of spaying and neutering – and the consequences of delaying surgery – why wait? Talk to your vet about having your pet spayed or neutered as early as when the last initial vaccinations are given, and pass this valuable information along to your local animal shelter and friends and family.
