What do the terms ‘Spaying’ and ‘Neutering’ mean?
Spay (females) and neuter (males) are surgical procedures performed by a vet to prevent animals from reproducing.
Spaying consists of removing the uterus and ovaries. Neutering involves removal of the testicles.
“Sterilization”, “fixing” or “altering” are terms also used.
