How many days until World Spay Day?


World Spay Day is celebrated every year on February 25. In 1995, World Spay Day was initiated by Doris's Animal Federation after Doris noticed the mortality rate of dogs and cats in crowded shelters are estimated at 14 to 17 million animals per year. Since its establishment, World Spay Day has gradually gained popularity and become a global campaign.

Animals are born with a pre-determined sex that confirms whether it is male or female, however humans have discovered this ability to alter the nature of animals. Both spawning and spawning usually mean removing the reproductive organs from an animal, leaving its ability to reproduce disabled. Normally, the primary goals of life are reproduction and feeding, but feeding becomes a priority when reproductive potential is lost. When the reproductive organs are removed from the animal, the corresponding hormones will not be produced inside the body, and the place where food and shelter is available will be the home for the animal. Therefore, the labor capacity can be increased for the animal if it is discarded or disabled. Despite the public's probable views regarding spanking or coaxing, the practice has been around for hundreds of years for the benefit of mankind.

Spaying is commonly used to refer to the removal of the reproductive (sex) organs of a female animal. When a female is killed, the usual term is changed in some animals such as chickens and ferrets to Poulard and Ma respectively. Spaying has a number of advantages such as increased affection for the owner throughout the year, a very small chance of getting breast lumps and absolutely no risk of related problems during pregnancy. In addition, the risk of pyometra and ovarian cancer is zero after a transplant. However, female dogs that are laid eggs often show signs of urinary incontinence, where they urinate without knowing. In addition, etching can affect female dogs with hypothyroidism. However, science and technology have revealed methods to overcome those problems. Although there are some problems that can result from egg whisking, owners tend to perform animal beatings to achieve a healthier and more active animal than in the previous period. There are many methods to perform spaying, in addition to surgical excision, such as hormones and vaccines.
