Question: Does neutering a dog make it less protective and a cat more mousier?

Answer: Spaying or neutering your dog or cat does not make the animal passive. It does make it less motivated by heat cycles and less likely to roam from home. It also protects animals from certain cancers and health issues. And it makes a huge impact on reducing pet overpopulation. So in these regards, it make your pets a better companion and neighbor. Neuter Now offers low cost sterilization at veterinary clinics islandwide. Visit hawaiianhumane.org for a list of providers and to order a certificate by mail.
