What is spaying and neutering surgery?
Spaying and neutering surgery is the removal of your pet’s reproductive organs through a small incision. The female’s uterus and ovaries are removed during spaying, while the male’s testicles are removed during neuter surgery. To keep your furry loved one comfortable during the procedure we will administer general anesthesia. To our highly trained team, your pet’s comfort and health come first.
When should I spay/neuter my pet?
Usually, cats can get the procedure done from 3 to 6-months-old while dogs get the procedure done at 6-months-old. From there, the procedure can be performed safely at any time in their adult life. Our veterinary team is here to help you make the best-informed decision for your pet. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions, we would be happy to discuss your options with you.
