Spay & Neuter = Love

Posted by siyerwin on Wednesday, April 25, 2007 at 9:25 PM

The spay and neuter solution is one of the most misunderstood concepts in cat and dog care. Just last Saturday, a couple of PARC visitors inquiring about adopting a kitten was surprised when we broached the idea of neutering the dog they currently have. They seemed to think that it's a matter of regret for a dog to lose its ability to reproduce. There are a lot of reasons why this is a wrong perception.

Nica of Cats' Lair summed it up pretty well with the following Spay/Neuter spiel:

--------------------------------

TO ALL CAT- AND DOG-LOVERS: DO THE RESPONSIBLE THING!!! SPAY/NEUTER YOUR BELOVED PET!!!

Taking good care of your pet and loving it does not end with vaccinations and healthy food. It includes spaying (for females) and neutering (for males).

DO YOU...

+ Want your cat (and dog) to become fluffier, heavier, and sweeter towards people and other pets?

+ Like your cat to stop disappearing for days and weeks, while you are worried sick whether it is still alive, or worse, road-kill?

+ Wish your cat (and dog) would live 10 years or more, with lesser risks of catching diseases or developing life-threatening cancers?

+ Hope to keep the number of your cats (and the smell of cat poo & pee in your house) under control?

Nowadays, there's just NO EXCUSE not to have your pet spayed/neutered when there's so many stray animals out there suffering from disease, hunger and the cruelty of people or being run over by cars. So many unwanted animals are in dire need of homes and it doesn't make sense to add to their suffering.

With a little effort and sacrifice, you can have the necessary surgery done. If you can afford vet care and pet food, then it follows you can also afford having your cat fixed. But if you are having financial difficulty, there are some organizations that can help you do the right thing for your cat (and dog).

PAWS: 475-1688 & 482-7695 and look for TIN.
- Location: Near Ateneo, Katipunan, Quezon City
- Rates: Male cat- P700, Female cat- P1,000; Male dog- P1,000, Female dog- P1,500*


* Rates apply only to native cats. Purebreds are charged a bit higher, but still not as expensive as those in vet clinics.

CARA: 0920-9126624, NANCY (President). Please say you got her number from Liza Umayam of PAWS.
- Location: Sta. Mesa, Manila, but surgeries can be performed in Mandaluyong, depending on schedule of vet.
- Rates: available upon inquiry. **


**Only native cats are qualified to avail of the low-cost rates. CARA does not spay/neuter purebreds.

Makati City Pound: 817-3271 and look for DR. MANALASTAS.
- Location: Near Makati fire station & PNP headquarters, Malugay Street, San Antonio Village
- Rates: Male cat- P400, Female cat- P600***


***Owner must be a registered resident of Makati (bring Community Taxpayer's Certificate) . Additional requirements may be asked from you, including proof that you cannot afford regular vet rates.


---> Hint: You may ask for discounts from your vets if you want multiple cats and dogs spayed/neutered. Vets can be very accomodating to their valued "suki" clients.


--------------------------------


Bottomline: You should not feel sorry for your cats and dogs when they get spayed/neutered. It's probably the best show of love for them because it's an essential requirement to a well-adapted, healthy and well-socialized cat or dog.

Do it also for the stray animals in your community. The animal welfare organizations mentioned above are willing to work with you. Call them up and ask about the Trap-Spay/Neuter-Release program.

    I really should get Doggy spayed sometime this year. Is it possible to know the procedure so I'll know what she'll go through?

    yes, not just for healthier pets, but for HAPPIER pets! completely eliminates the stress of females going through periods of heat, & males wont have to go crazy when they smell females in heat. cats wont have to be stressed trying to break out of your home during mating season

    finally got all my furkids spayed/neutered, they are much happier (& healthier) babies! :)

    hehehe. celine, i'm not really that aware of what actually goes on during the operation. but i guess doggy will be anesthetize and will be asleep during the procedure. vets in practice in mandaluyong comes highly recommended but you can also have it done at PARC.

    hi! my cat just gave birth yesterday to 5 kittens and i just want to ask how long should i wait before i take her to the vet to have her spayed? i'm planning to take her and my other cat at PAWS so if its not too much to ask about their vet's sked or should i ask them for an appointment? and about my 5 kitties, as much as i would want to keep them, i'm also planning on finding them a good home. i really hope PAWS can help me, but i'll make sure that i will not give them up until they're healthy enough to survive. thanks!

    Hi, Jeng! It would be best to call PARC to set an appointment for your cats' spay/neuter. The no. to call is 4751688. Please ask for Doc Jeff, Doc Ami or Jho and ask them your question regarding your mommy cat.

    We would appreciate it very much if you try and work a little harder to find homes for the kittens with the help of your network of friends and family. The shelter is currently housing more than 140 cats and kittens that we're trying to re-home. We'd be lucky to have one adoption per week.

    It would be best to have your kittens fixed first before you give them to other homes. Kittens can go through the operation after their 6th month. This will save its future guardian from the problem you're having now. PAWS is willing to work with you regarding this.

    Thanks, Jeng, for taking care of your cats and looking out for their future. Please don't hesitate to get in touch for any of your questions.

Please do not leave your email or contact numbers in the comments. Email me directly at sherwin @ mefindhome.org if you have concerns or questions. This blog is increasingly attracting breeders/pet sellers trying to advertise their business through the comments and I don't want that. The blog seems to also be becoming a bulletin board of sorts for people who wish to abandon their pets. Blogger.com allows no way to edit your comments so there I have no other option but to delete comments that I deem inappropriate in this regard. I apologize for the inconvenience. Again, if you have any questions/concerns, better to email me at sherwin @ mefindhome.org than to comment here. Thank you very much!
