Spay & Neuter

Spaying

There are many benefits to spaying your pet. Along with preventing female animals from becoming pregnant and reproducing, this procedure helps them live longer, healthier lives and does not change their personality. It also helps control the pet overpopulation problem, which keeps animals out of shelters.

Spayed animals are more protected against deadly diseases, bacterial infections, reproductive tract diseases and different forms of cancer. They also will not go into heat, which helps prevent pacing and crying in female cats.

When an animal is spayed, their ovaries and uterus are removed. They do need to be under anesthesia, and we follow very strict protocols and monitor your pet’s vital signs to ensure a safe procedure.

Neutering

There are many benefits to neutering your pet. This procedure helps your pet live a longer, healthier life, and does not change their personality. It also helps control the pet overpopulation problem, which keeps animals out of shelters.

Neutered animals have a reduced or eliminated risk of testicular or prostate cancer and sexually transmitted diseases. They will also less often display behaviors such as roaming, fighting, spraying and humping.

When an animal is neutered, their testicles are removed. They do need to be under anesthesia, and we follow very strict protocols and monitor your pet’s vital signs to ensure a safe procedure.
