Pet Spay and Neuter Surgery Protects Your Pet's Health

At Animal Medical Center, our veterinarian strongly recommends that pet owners spay or neuter their pets. Doing so delivers numerous health and behavioral benefits while also helping to reduce the unwanted animal population. Spaying is the surgical removal of the ovaries and uterus in a female. Neutering is the surgical removal of a male animal’s testicles. Both operations are standard veterinary procedures requiring minimal hospitalization. As part of our pet spay and neuter program, our veterinarian Dr. Oh has safely performed this routine surgery on hundreds of pet patients. We are committed to helping your pet live a long, healthy and active life.

Benefits of Sterilizing Your Puppy and Kitten 

The best time to spay or neuter young pets is as a puppy and kitten. Spaying prior the first heat in females delivers numerous health benefits, including a reduced risk for breast cancer. Spaying prior to the first heat also reduces unwanted behavior, such as howling and urinating in the house to attract a mate. Neutering a male prior to six months of age will also help control unwanted behavior and refocus a male’s attention back on his family. Un-neutered male pets may develop aggressive behaviors and spray the house with urine to mark their territories. Male pets will also try to escape in an effort to find a mate. Neutering before six months of age helps avoid these undesired behaviors and also reduces the risk for testicular cancer.

Spaying or neutering your pet also helps reduce the unwanted animal population. Millions of dogs and cats are euthanized each year. Even if you do find loving homes for your pet’s offspring, this means that shelter animals waiting to be adopted lose out on the chance for a forever home. With our pet spay and neuter program, every pet wins.

Pet spay and neuter operations for a puppy and kitten are safe, routine surgeries. We follow strict safety and pain management protocols. Our primary goal is your pet’s health and comfort. Following the operation, we will keep your pet under close supervision while he or she recovers. We typically perform the operation in the morning, allowing time for your pet to recover and then be picked up in the afternoon.

Once we are sure that your pet is not suffering from any complications, we will send him or her home with detailed recovery instructions. Your pet will likely be tired the first day and immediately go to sleep. Within two to three days your pet will be back to his or her normal, active personality. In fact, many pet owners report that their biggest challenge is keeping pets quiet while their stitches heal.
