Spay & Neuter

Neutering your pet has many benefits. The procedure, which prevents male animals from reproducing, can help your dog or cat live a longer, healthier life. Neutering will not change your pet’s personality.

By neutering your pet, you’re reducing or eliminating his risk for prostate and testicular cancer, as well as sexually transmitted diseases. Neutering will also reduce or eliminate undesirable and embarrassing behavior, including roaming, fighting, humping, and spraying. In addition, neutering your pet will help control the dog and cat overpopulation problem, keeping more animals out of shelters.

Neutering, which involves removing the testicles, is a surgical procedure and does need to be performed with the pet under anesthesia. We follow strict protocols and continually monitor your pet’s vital signs to help ensure his safety. Please see the descriptions under Anesthesia and Patient Monitoring for more information on what we do to keep your pet safe.

By spaying your pet, you are contributing to the control of the dog and cat overpopulation crisis, ultimately reducing the number of animals in shelters.

Choosing to spay your pet is a decision that benefits both your furry companion and the community. This surgical procedure prevents female animals from reproducing and offers numerous health advantages. Spaying your dog or cat can help her live a longer, healthier life without altering her personality.

By opting to spay your female pet, you are safeguarding her against potentially life-threatening conditions such as bacterial infections, reproductive tract diseases, and various types of cancer. Additionally, you’ll no longer have to worry about the mess and discomfort that often comes with the heat cycle in female dogs or the restless pacing and crying exhibited by female cats. 

The spaying procedure involves the removal of the ovaries and uterus and is performed under anesthesia. Our team adheres to rigorous protocols and continuously monitors your pet’s vital signs throughout the surgery to prioritize her safety. For more details on our measures to ensure your pet’s well-being, please refer to the Anesthesia and Patient Monitoring sections.
