Spay & Neuter

It is generally advised to have your pet spayed or neutered in their first year. We can provide a recommendation on the best time to have your pet spayed or neutered based on breed, age, and other factors.

Why Spay or Neuter Your Pet?

There are many benefits to spaying your female companion. First, the contribution of preventing dog and cat overpopulation. Second, spaying will stop the sometimes “messy” heat cycles that attract male dogs to your house from miles away. Third, it will help prevent diseases in your pet such as pyometra (infection in the uterus) and mammary cancer. Spaying involves surgical removal of both ovaries and the uterus.

Before Surgery:

  • Pre-anesthetic blood testing is strongly recommended but not required.
  • Please do not allow your pet(s) food or water after 8 pm the night before surgery.
  • Surgery patients must be at the clinic the day of surgery no later than 8:30 am.
  • Please walk your pet before coming into the clinic for surgical appointments.
