We Provide Customized Pet Spay and Neuter Plans
Spay and neuter surgeries may be routine, but we respect the needs of every individual pet to ensure their spay or neuter procedure is performed at the right time. Generally, it is recommended that dogs and cats be spayed and neutered around 6 months of age. But for large and extra-large males, we prefer to wait to neuter until they are at least 1 year old. However, our team will work with you to plan your pet’s surgery based on their unique needs before recommending a timeline for surgery.
Why is It Important to Spay and Neuter?
Spaying and neutering controls the stray animal population and helps to reduce the strain on animal shelters and rescues. In addition, spay and neuter surgeries can potentially prevent or reduce the risk of some diseases and hormone-related behaviors, including:
- Mammary gland tumors (females)
- Uterine and ovarian tumors (females)
- Testicular and prostate tumors (males)
- Mounting, vocalizing, and roaming (males and females)
- Urine spraying (males)
- Aggressiveness (males)
