Why Spay/Neuter?

Search anywhere on the web about spaying and neutering and you’ll find the reasons and statistics on why it’s so vitally important.  Remember as a Pit Bull owner you want to help them be an ambassador of the breed.  One of the best things you can do to ensure that is make sure they’re spayed/neutered.


  • Live longer, healthier lives.
  • Usually more docile which results in easier training.
  • Spaying greatly reduces the risk if breast cancer and eliminates the threat of uterine and ovarian cancer. 
  • Spaying eliminates the heat cycle and everything associated with it.
  • Spaying helps rid the incessant crying, howling, and nervous behavior. 
  • Neutering prevents testicular cancer and prostate problems.  
  • Neutering can also help reduce other serious health problems like hernias and anal tumors.
  • Neutering at a younger age reduces dominance or aggression related behavior issues. (possession, food guarding, territory marking, dog aggression, and “humping”.) 
  • Neutering relieves that urge to search for a female in heat.  
  • Neutering can also help prevent that urge to roam which can result in getting lost, injured, or killed.
