What Does it Mean to
Spay & Neuter a Pet?
When performing spaying and neutering surgeries, we only use advanced pain management techniques along with anesthesia to ensure your pet feels no pain during the procedure. We are also proud to offer our services at a low-cost to help reduce the number of unwanted cats and dogs in our neighborhood and local shelters. Spaying and neutering is an important part of protecting your pet’s health, and can allow a pet to live much longer. By spaying or neutering your cat or dog, you help them avoid major illnesses and diseases while decreasing aggressive behavior and the driving instinct to mate.
Sterilization Can Help Your Pet’s
Physical Health & Behavior
Spaying is a veterinary surgical procedure that removes your pet’s female reproductive organs. There are many benefits to getting a female dog or cat spayed. First, you help contribute to reducing the overpopulation of pets. This saves the lives of animals by keeping down the number of euthanized and homeless pets. Second, spaying female dogs and cats stops them from going into heat. This keeps them from experiencing unwanted or difficult pregnancies. Third, spaying prevents illnesses and diseases like infections and mammary cancer.
The surgery is simple and routine. Your female dog or cat is placed under general anesthesia and a surgical incision is made in the abdomen. The ovaries, fallopian tubes and uterus are removed. Then, the incision is carefully closed so the healing process can begin. Anesthesia will keep the entire procedure painless and your dog or cat will be resting comfortably throughout the entire surgery.
Neutering is a veterinary surgical procedure that removes your pet’s male reproductive organs. Neutering is an important part of being a responsible pet owner. Unneutered male dogs and cats are prone to wandering the neighborhood, searching for a mate, and endangering themselves and others. This behavior can (and will) lead to male dogs or cats getting into fights over mating opportunities, getting struck by cars, or if mating is successful, unwanted pets that often are euthanized due to overpopulation in animal shelters. Neutering can help eliminate these activities while also preventing common male dog and cat diseases such as enlarged prostates and testicular cancer.
The neutering procedure is a relatively uncomplicated surgery. First, your dog or cat is placed under general anesthesia. A small incision is made in your male pet’s scrotal sac and the testicles are removed. Then, the incision is tightly closed with sutures, so your pet can begin to heal, which occurs quickly. The entire surgery is painless and your dog or cat sleeps comfortably throughout the procedure.
