For a complete health program, Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinic of New Braunfels highly recommends spaying or neutering your pet. As animal lovers, we’re conscious of booming stray populations and crowded animal shelters, which spaying or neutering can help positively combat.

In a spay or neuter procedure, the hormone-producing organs that can potentially lead to cancer development are removed, thereby eliminating the risk of that organ’s cancer development entirely. Additional (and important) benefits of spaying or neutering your pet include:

In female pets:

  • No unwanted pregnancies
  • No heat cycle
  • Less tendency to roam in search of a mate
  • A lower risk for breast cancer, ovarian cancer, and uterine cancer (females)

In male pets:

  • Less likelihood of spraying/marking in the house
  • Less tendency to roam in search of a mate
  • Less risk of becoming aggressive
  • A lower risk for testicular cancer and prostate cancer
  • Also less likely to engage in mounting behaviors


It’s important to understand that the pros of spaying or neutering far outweigh the cons. Our team is committed to dispelling the common medical misconceptions about spaying or neutering procedures, including:

  • Weight gain. Some claim that pets gain weight after being spayed or neutered, but there is little evidence to support this. As long as a pet has an active lifestyle and an appropriate diet, weight gain should not occur.
  • Personality change. While the procedure can affect certain (often undesired) behavior, your pet will remain as their usual lovable self following the surgery.
  • Expensive. We’d posit that there are more cost-effective spaying or neutering services available today than ever before! If cost is a concern, please let us know.
