When we bring dogs into our lives, we know that things will never be the same. Caring for a pet is a huge responsibility, but they repay all that hard work tenfold with their love and devotion. That’s why we buy them the best food on the market, take them to get all their shots, and even go on long winter walks with them when we’d rather be inside under the covers.
Is there anything you wouldn’t do to help your favorite pup live a longer, happier, healthier life? Probably not. But here’s something you might not know. As it turns out, spaying and neutering your dogs will help them live the long lives they deserve.
Studies show that spaying and neutering can actually help our canine companions live longer.
According to a 2013 report, male dogs live 18% longer when they’re neutered.
And spayed female dogs live a whopping 25% longer!
Spaying and neutering your best buds will help them in so many ways. These practices also curb the fact that 2.7 million loving animals have to be put down every year in the U.S.
These simple procedures make life so much easier for our friends!
