Spay and Neuter your pets

Spaying (females) and Neutering (males) is a standard surgical procedure also known as sterilization, which is recommended by any vet to pet owners who are not looking to breed their pets.

Many pet owners are unaware of the health benefits associated with having your pets spayed and neutered. Many are also unaware of the health risks associated with leaving your pets intact.

Intact female pets are seven times more likely to develop mammary tumors (breast cancer), ovarian cancer, pyometra (infection of the uterus), hormonal stress issues, and unwanted pregnancies. If you spay your female pet as early as possible, their risks for these issues become almost non-existent.

Intact male pets are just as likely to develop similar reproductive related health problems, such as testicular cancer, prostate cancer, behavioral issues, and hormonal stress issues. Neutering your pets at a younger age can prevent most of these issues and lower the risk of many.

As with any surgical procedure, there are risks associated with anesthesia and post-surgical side-effects. Consult our team for further information on the spay and neuter procedure.
