Spay and Neuter FAQs

What Are Spay and Neuter Services?

Spaying and neutering involve medically and surgically removing your pet's reproductive organs. This can prevent unwanted pregnancies and can help prevent stray litters if you are unable to care for your cat or dog's litters.

Spaying and neutering are surgical procedures that can be done on both female and male cats and dogs. These surgical procedures are extremely common and are even done in certain pet shelters. 

How Can a Veterinarian Help My Pet?

A veterinarian on our team can determine if your pet is a good candidate for spaying and neutering. This type of surgery can be done when your pet is at a young age, or it can be done during early adolescence.

Spay and neuter services can also help prevent medical illnesses the veterinarian might be concerned about, such as breast cancer, testicular cancer, and prostate cancer in your cat or dog.

How Long Does Spay and Neuter Surgery Take?

A trained veterinarian on our team can perform the spay and neuter surgery for your pet and release them to you the same day. They will release your pet with follow-up instructions that can include covering your pet's wound to prevent infections, administering calming medication to reduce pain, and administering antibiotics should your pet's wound get infected.

All of this follow-up care can ensure your pet’s spay and neuter surgery is a success, so you and your pet can reap the benefits!
