Important Reasons to Spay or Neuter Your Pet

For countless pet owners, spaying and neutering is a routine procedure, but few realize the numerous benefits it can bring your pet. Here are some reasons to spay or neuter your animal:

  • Decrease the desire for pets to roam and seek mates
  • Decrease pet overpopulation and pet euthanasia
  • Decrease the risk of mammary gland tumors
  • Eliminate heat cycles, bleeding, and calling for a mate
  • Eliminate or reduce marking or spraying
  • Reducing the risk of ovarian and uterine cancers
  • Reducing the risk of prostate cancer and testicular cancer

Our Spaying & Neutering Process

Spaying and neutering are surgical procedures that prevent your animal from reproducing and are primarily done for pets who are at least six months old. We will perform pretreatment exams to ensure your pet is in a healthy condition and ready for surgery. We will run a thorough animal blood test and physical examination to confirm that no underlying issues exist that could create complications with the procedure. We can also utilize digital x-rays and perform an ultrasound if necessary. After we've concluded your pet is a viable candidate for this procedure, we will begin the process.

Spaying is a procedure performed on female animals involving surgically removing the uterus and ovaries to permanently halt the possibility of pregnancy. Neutering is performed on males and involves removing the testicles to eliminate fertility.

Animal spaying and neutering are sensitive procedures that require our expert care, but they can be completed in just a few hours and do not require an overnight hospital stay. Your pet may experience some discomfort for the following few days after the procedure; we can provide tips to keep them relaxed and prescribe pain medications if

The following few days after the procedure, your pet may experience increased discomfort. If your pet's incision has opened or you've noticed excessive swelling, redness, or discharge, contact our office immediately. Here are some tips that should be followed to ease your pet's recovery:

  • Make sure to examine the incision daily to ensure its healing properly
  • Keep your pet confined from other animals, and allow them to have a quiet resting place
  • Prevent your pet from licking the surgical site by keeping close to them or using a cone
  • Wait at least 10 days after surgery to bathe your pet

Our veterinarians will run thorough animal blood tests and other exams to ensure your pet is ready for surgery.
