Why should I spay/neuter my dog or cat?

Spayed and neutered animals make better pets and are generally healthier. Spaying your female will prevent unwanted pregnancy reducing pet overpopulation, eliminate messy heat cycles, and keep your pet from straying. It also eliminates the chance of uterine cancer, mammary cancer, and pyometra, an often fatal uterine infection. Neutering your male will prevent unwanted pregnancy reducing pet overpopulation, reduces aggressive behavior tendencies, and reduces urine marking behaviors.

It will also keep your pet from straying, and eliminates the chance of testicular and prostate cancer.

How old does my puppy or kitten need to be to be spayed/neutered?

We recommend your pet to be minimum of 6 months of age for the surgical procedure. All of our surgical patients get intravenous fluid at the time of surgery. We also strongly recommend pre-anesthetic blood work prior to surgical procedure.

Will my pet be in pain after it's spay/neuter?

There is a certain amount of pain associated with any surgical procedure. Your pet gets an injection of pain medication while they are under anesthesia that will alleviate any pain or discomfort for 24 hours after the procedure. Post surgery your pet is discharged   with pain medication to take home.

Will my dog/cat get fat after it's been spayed or neutered?

Spaying and neutering should not affect your pet’s weight, this is only a myth. What spaying and neutering does do is reduces your pet’s energy requirements. As long as your pet is maintained on a proper amount of food, fed a balanced diet, and is regularly exercised, it should maintain a healthy weight.

Can you spay/neuter and declaw my cat at the same time?

We can! In fact we prefer to do them at the same time so they will only be under anesthesia once. We prefer to do the spay/neuter and declaw at six months of age.

How long does my pet need to be at the clinic for the procedure?

We will ask you to drop your pet off between 8:30a.m. and 9:30 a.m. for the procedure. The procedures are done during the day which allows us to watch them wake up throughout the afternoon. If there are no complications most pets will go home after 4:30p.m.

With declaw surgeries, or surgical procedures that include declawing we prefer to keep your pet in the hospital overnight. They will be discharged the next evening following the surgery.

Will you  remove deciduous/ baby/milk teeth at the time of spay/neuter?

Yes , we recommend extracting retained deciduous/milk teeth at the time you pet is under anesthesia for spa/neuter surgery. The sole purpose of this procedure is to allow adult teeth’s to come out properly there by preventing overcrowding in mouth.
