Spaying and Neutering

While making the decision to spay or neuter your pet can be a difficult and at times scary decision these surgeries are simple, generally quick, and have many benefits. Dog and cat overpopulation is a huge problem in the United States. Breeding of pets is highly discouraged and should be left for the professional breeders. Breeding can be costly, messy, and frustrating. Females should be spayed at 5 ½ months, and males should be neutered at 6 months. The first heat may occur in females as early as 6 months.

Spaying is the surgical removal of the ovaries and uterus while the pet is under anesthesia. Getting your pet spayed reduces her risk of problems such as bacterial infection, reproductive tract diseases, several types of cancers, and pyometra (infection of the uterus). 

Neutering is the surgical removal of the testicles while the pet is under anesthesia. Getting your pet neutered reduces his risk of testicular and prostate cancer it can also help to reduce or eliminate certain behaviors such as humping, fighting, and spraying. 

Your pet’s health and safety is our main priority so we use advanced anesthetic and surgical techniques to ensure the best care for your loved ones.
