Spay or Neuter Your Dog or Cat
Having your dog or cat spayed or neutered offers a number of health benefits not only for your pet, but for the entire pet population.
Why Should I Spay or Neuter my Pet?
- It can extend the life of your pet. Ovarian and uterine cancer, as well as mammary gland tumors, are common deadly diseases that can be prevented if your female pet is spayed before her first heat. Research also shows that neutered male dogs live 18% longer than unneutered males dogs, and spayed female dogs live 23% longer than unspayed female dogs.
- It helps reduce the unwanted pet population. According to the Humane Society of the United States, 6 to 8 million animals enter shelters each year. Of these, barely half are adopted, and the rest are euthanized.
- It deters bad behavior. Dogs who are unneutered are more aggressive and more likely to roam, and unspayed cats have strong urges to spray. The easiest solution is to have your pet spayed or neutered between 4-6 months of age.
Please note, having your pet spayed or neutered does not alter personality, instincts, or weight.
What to Expect During Your Appointment
Prior to surgery, we may perform a complete physical examination, blood screening, and an electrocardiogram (ECG). The drop off time for spay and neuter appointments is between 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. For the comfort and safety of your pet, we will administer anesthesia and carefully monitor him or her during and after the procedure.
Following your pet’s surgery, you will receive detailed care instructions, including any necessary medical prescriptions. Neutered pets are discharged the same day. Spayed pets require overnight observation.
We accept walk-ins during our Doctor's Hours to meet your busy lifestyle. If you’d prefer to make an appointment, we offer those too!
