Spay & Neuter Services at Our Animal Hospital

Spay and neuter are the terms used to describe the sterilization of dogs or cats. Neutering a male dog or cat involves removing the testicles while spaying a female dog or cat requires removing the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and uterus. These procedures render pets sterile, so they won't be able to produce any offspring or surprise litters of puppies or kittens.

The Spay & Neuter Procedures

Spaying and neutering of pets is considered a same-day procedure, meaning your pet will be able to go home the same day as their operation. A vet on our team will schedule the surgery and you can drop your pet off on the morning of that date. Your pet will be given an anesthetic, so he will sleep through the procedure. When your pet is awake and ready to go home, we will inform you.

We recommend preparing a safe and quiet place for your pet to rest once he comes home. You will likely want to avoid allowing your pet to climb or run and play during the recovery period, which may take about 10 to 14 days.

Benefits of Spaying & Neutering

Spaying or neutering your pet eliminates the risk of certain reproductive cancers since those organs are removed. It can also make male pets live a calmer and more relaxed life. They are also less likely to mark territory, roam away from home, or act aggressively toward other animals. Spaying and neutering also helps to lower the pet population in the local community, since it prevents the birth of unwanted litters.
