Ian Somerhalder's Adopted Pooch Gets Spayed
“Pls send some positive vibes for my little girl, Nietzsche who goes under the knife to be Spayed in a few minutes!STOP OVERPOPULATION-SPAY AND NEUTER Thank you!”
According to the ASPCA, Nietzsche’s spaying means a healthier life for her. The organization says that spaying prevents a female dog of getting breast cancer or uterine infections, of which 50% of cases are fatal. The thought that spaying can cause excessive weight gain in a dog has been proven a myth. And of course, spaying and neutering directly reduces pet overpopulation. Unplanned litters from unaltered pets can contribute to strays suffering on the streets or animals suffering (long- or short-term) in animal shelters.
Many cities across the country offer low- or no-cost spay & neutering. To find a program near you, check this locator on the ASPCA’s website.
Thank you, Ian Somerhalder, for being a responsible pet parent, and best wishes to Nietzsche!
