It must be fed and exercised, and it must be given love, attention, and protection. There’s another responsibility that not all pet owners think about, however: spaying or neutering, or “fixing.” What does “fixing” a pet mean? Simply put, it means a quick, cheap surgery that will prevent a pet from ever becoming a mother or father. This surgery solves problems that pet owners know about, and some that they might not have considered before. In fact, all pet owners should be required to have their pets fixed because failure to do so overburdens shelters, causes pain and suffering to unwanted pets, and increases the health risks of pets and owners alike.
