Recession Impacts Spaying & Neutering Animals

It's a problem facing our community -- too many unwanted animals. One reason for it -- some pet owners aren't getting their cats and dogs fixed because of the cost.

All three animal hospitals in Beaufort County are cutting prices to get pets spayed and neutered. For the rest of February the cost of the procedure will be reduced -- all you have to do is call your local veterinarian and make an appointment.

Vets hope the reduced prices will help cut-down on unwanted animals, a problem that's taking a toll on the community since taxpayers get stuck with the bill for things like animal shelters.

Vets say once neutered -- male animals tend to be more relaxed and less aggressive. Plus, the procedure cuts down on diseases like cancer.
