What is Spay/Neuter?

 A spay is the surgical removal of a female’s reproductive organs so that she can no longer become pregnant. A neuter is the surgical removal of a male animal’s testicles so that he cannot impregnate a female.The surgeries are performed by a veterinarian while animals are under general anesthesia so that they do not feel pain. When someone says an animal is “fixed” or “altered” that means the animal has been spayed or neutered.
