Pet overpopulation is a crucial problem in the United States today. An ovariohysterectomy, or spay of a cat is necessary for greater health and happiness of your loved one. This imperative operation also reduces a number of behavioral problems that may occur during the many cycles of attempted wooing in your cats' existence.

It has been calculated that one cat and her offspring could produce up to 420,000 kittens in a 7 year period. Allowing a cat to have even one litter of kittens simply adds to this number.
Spaying your beloved cat vastly reduces the risk of her contracting several life threatening diseases of the reproductive tract. Un-spayed cats have a 90% greater chance of contracting destructive cancers of the mammary glands, ovaries, and the uterus. Older un-spayed female cats are at great risk of getting pyometra, a malignant infection which manifests in the womb that can be fatal if not treated properly. Also on the average, sterilized cats live two to three years longer than un-spayed cats.
