As in human beings, a female cat or dog can be infertile. Intact females are not spayed. Sterility in intact females, also known as infertility, occurs when female dogs or cats cannot reproduce for one reason or another. While some of these pets can produce eggs, others cannot. Although there are many things that can cause sterility in intact females, some of the most common causes are uterine cysts, uterine infections and thyroid insufficiency. Other conditions that may cause sterility in dogs and cats include chromosomal abnormalities and ovarian abnormalities.
When adding a dog or cat to your family you want to make sure your pet is happy, healthy and protected. During its lifetime your pet is exposed to many illnesses and diseases and some breeds are affected by a congenital disease which is a condition existing at birth. At these moments when your pet is ill or maybe needs surgery, you want to be protected for the unexpected and high veterinarian costs.
