Spay and Neuter
Spaying and neutering is considered an important part of your kitten or puppy’s health care plan. It is a safe and routine outpatient surgical procedure that has a fast recovery time. Spaying females reduces or prevents ovarian, uterine, and mammary cancers, while neutering males prevents testicular cancers and many prostatic diseases. It also prevents unwanted litters, reduces the roaming drive and the pets which may end up in shelters. We will work with you to plan the procedure at the time best for your kitten or puppy’s’ overall health. In general, we recommend spaying before the first heat for females, at least 6 months of age for smaller breed dogs and neutering around 12-18 months of age for large breed male dogs. Following these age guidelines will help decrease chances of medical issues including osteoarthritis, and hip dysplasia, however specific recommendations will be based on your puppy’s overall health.
In addition to spay/neuter surgeries, our veterinarians perform a number of other surgeries including minor orthopedic surgeries, mass removal and general dental surgery. We provide a separate surgical suite, prepping area and the highest standards for anesthesia and monitoring according to AAHA standards. All patients are monitored before, during and after their procedure. Prior to a surgical procedure the veterinarian will discuss the entire process from beginning to end. Per AAHA standards, pre-surgical blood work is completed on all patients prior to the procedure to provide the highest amount of safety.
