Spaying and neutering may not seem important, but it is. For one, it's healthier for your pets, and It's a fool proof way to prevent unwanted litters thus contributing to the pet overpopulation. According to the ASPCA these are the health benefits of spaying and neutering your pets:
Your female pet will live a longer, healthier life. Spaying helps prevent uterine infections and breast tumors, which are malignant or cancerous in about 50 percent of dogs and 90 percent of cats. Spaying your pet before her first heat offers the best protection from these diseases.
Neutering your male companion prevents testicular cancer and some prostate problems.
