Spaying and neutering can not be logically compared to venomoiding a snake. Spaying and neutering DOES in fact have useful benefits for the animal, and is not done just for convenience or to control behavior problems. Intact animals are capable of developing various cancers of their reproductive organs, which in neutered animals is either not possible or the chance is greatly reduced. Female dogs can also develop an infected uterus, a potentially life threatening illness, but if spayed this will never be a risk.

Venomoiding is done so a person can own a venomous snake without REALLY owning a venomous snake, which seems a little absurd. If you want a snake that you can handle without the threat of death, there are hundreds of beautiful non-venomous snakes available on today's market. There is no need to mutilate one of God's creatures for your own benefit. And unlike spaying and neutering, there is absolutely NO benefit to the snake when its venom glands are removed.
