Spay and Neuter

Spaying or neutering your pet is essential for its health and behavior and for controlling the pet population. Our veterinarians also provide spay and neuter services, along with wellness checks, orthopedic surgery, microchipping, and dental procedures.

Spay and Neuter Surgery

Spaying and neutering are two of the many surgical services our veterinarians perform. We focus on providing quality care and comfort for your pet’s health throughout the procedure, including a pre-surgical exam, close monitoring of vital signs during the procedure, administration of pain medication immediately post-op, and providing pain medication to administer at home for discomfort.

Benefits of Spay and Neuter Procedures

There are many benefits to having your pet spayed or neutered, including the following:

  • Spaying and neutering result in fewer homeless animals.

  • During heat cycles, felines are very vocal for extended periods.

  • Neutering can help mitigate spraying and marking behaviors with males.

  • Neutering can help prevent fighting with other dogs or cats, which can result in dangerous bites and wounds.

  • Pets are less stressed.

  • Reduces or prevents a serious uterine infection in females called a pyometra.

  • Reduces the possibility of mammary cancer in females.

  • Helps prevent testicular cancer in males.

  • Outdoor pets will not have the urge to roam around the neighborhood, which in itself is dangerous.

  • Neutering helps curb aggressive pet behavior.

  • Having your pet spayed or neutered is less expensive overall than paying for the upkeep of a litter.
