Spaying and Neutering

We generally perform the majority of our spay and neutering procedures for kittens at 6 months of age, unless there are particular health or breed concerns.

Please feel free to contact us for an appointment, or if you are struggling with the decision of whether to neuter your pet.


Spaying

Spaying your pet has many benefits. The procedure, which prevents female animals from becoming pregnant and reproducing, can help your dog, cat rabbit or ferret live a longer, healthier life.

By spaying your female pet, you’re protecting her against potentially deadly diseases, including bacterial infection of the uterus (pyometra), reproductive tract diseases, and several types of cancer. You also won’t have to worry about her going into heat. This means avoiding the mess that often accompanies the heat cycle in female dogs and the pacing and crying that happens with female cats. In addition, spaying your pet will help control the dog and cat overpopulation problem, keeping more animals out of shelters.

Neutering

Neutering your pet has many benefits. The procedure, which prevents male animals from reproducing, can help your dog, cat, rabbit or guinea pig live a longer, healthier life.

By neutering your pet, you’re reducing or eliminating his risk for prostate and testicular cancer, as well as sexually transmitted diseases. Neutering will also reduce or eliminate certain behaviours, including roaming, fighting, humping, and spraying. In addition, neutering your pet will help control the dog and cat overpopulation problem, keeping more animals out of shelters.
