Pet Spay and Neuter Surgery Protects Your Pet's Health
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.
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.
Our pet spay and neuter program is an affordable, cost-effective and responsible choice. Contact our veterinarian to learn more!
