Spaying or neutering can be done at approximately 6 months of age. Your pet is given an exam prior to surgery to help determine whether your pet is healthy enough to undergo the surgical procedure. Current vaccinations are required at the time of surgery. Also a pre-anesthetic blood screen is recommended prior to undergoing anesthesia and surgery.

Procedures involving sutures require them to be removed in 10 to 14 days following the surgery.

No, there is no advantage to letting your pet have one litter. However there are plenty of advantages to having you pet spayed or neutered. These advantages include decreasing the chances of breast tumors later in life, decreasing the chance of cystic ovaries and uterine infections later in life, decreasing the desire to roam the neighborhood, decreasing the incidence of prostate cancer later in life, helping prevent spraying and marking, and also decreases the surplus of unwanted puppies and kittens

Yes! We require an initial exam of your pet prior to surgery. This is typically done 1-2 weeks prior to your pet’s spay or neuter. During this initial exam, the doctor will make sure your pet is healthy enough to undergo surgery. We will also draw blood for our pre-anesthetic screening bloodwork. The pre-anesthetic blood screening tests the organ functions and blood counts of your pet. The pre-anesthetic blood screening is done to assure safety during surgery and the ability to heal following surgery.
