Spay and Neuter

Why Consider Spaying and Neutering

Spaying and neutering not only prevent unwanted litters but also provide numerous health benefits for pets. Female pets that are spayed have a reduced risk of uterine infections and mammary tumors, while male pets that are neutered are less likely to develop testicular cancer and prostate problems. Additionally, spaying and neutering can help reduce undesirable behaviors such as roaming, aggression, and marking territory.

The Surgical Procedure

During a spay or neuter surgery, your pet will be placed under general anesthesia to ensure it is comfortable and pain-free throughout the procedure. Our veterinarians will then perform the surgery, which typically involves removing the reproductive organs. While the surgery itself is relatively quick, we take the time to monitor your pet closely during the recovery to ensure it is healing properly.

Post-Surgery Care

After the surgery, your pet may experience some discomfort or mild side effects such as lethargy or loss of appetite. Our team will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for your pet at home and will be available to answer any questions or concerns you may have. We may also prescribe pain medication or antibiotics to help him or her recover more comfortably.
