There are numerous reasons to spay or neuter your pit bull. Spayed females are less at risk for mammary gland tumors, ovarian cancer and uterine cancer. Neutered males have a decreased chance of getting prostate disease, and no chance of getting testicular cancer. Your dog won't try to escape the yard to mate, aggressive male dogs will become calmer. Dogs that have been spayed or neutered live longer, healthier lives. And most importantly, when you spay or neuter your pit bull you know that you won't be contributing to the serious pit bull overpopulation problem that we have in Georgia, where an average of 150 pit bulls are killed every week in the Atlanta area alone.
