I feel like I need to get my girls spayed because I've heard so many scary things about mammary tumors. But, what are the real benefits to getting them spayed besides that? This is, of course, realizing that the main purpose is to prevent them from having babies. I just have two girls and I really don't plan to bring a male into the mix. I'd like to work with a rescue eventually, but not yet. I'm happy with the two I have. That being said, is spaying still worth it? And what are the other risks? I've heard horror stories from neuters and I know that's a lot less invasive than a spay. Please let me know of your experiences.
