Spaying or neutering your pet can help them live a longer, healthier life, minimize behavior problems, and help control the stray population.
Spaying females or neutering males eliminates unwanted litters, which contribute to thousands of euthanasia procedures and millions of stray animals. Additionally, these procedures may help your pet live a longer, healthier life, minimize behavior problems, and help control the population of unwanted pets
While usually recommended at a young age, it is important to consult with our veterinarians to determine the best age for your pet. You can reduce the likelihood of certain cancers and tumors by spaying or neutering at the right age.
Spaying, also called an "ovariohysterectomy", is a surgical procedure in which both ovaries and uterus are completely removed from your female pet while they are under general anesthesia. Neutering refers to the surgical procedure in which both testicles are removed while your male pet is under general anesthesia.
Your pet’s safety and comfort are our primary concerns when performing a spay or neuter. We use advanced pain management techniques in conjunction with anesthesia to make sure your pet is as comfortable as possible during the procedure and after they are discharged. Proper pain management reduces some anesthetic complications during surgery and allows for a faster recovery following surgery.
