Spay and Neuter Faqs

What is spaying and neutering?

Spaying and neutering are procedures that sterilize pets to prevent them from reproducing. Spaying means removing the ovaries and uterus in female animals, while neutering means eliminating the testicles in male animals.

What are the reasons why I should spay or neuter my pet?

There are many benefits to spaying or neutering your pet. For example, it can prevent unwanted litter, reduce the risk of certain types of cancer, and decrease behavioral problems such as aggression and roaming.

When is the best time to spay or neuter my pet?

The ideal time to spay or neuter your pet can vary depending on the animal's breed, size, and health. However, it is recommended to be done before your pets reach sexual maturity, typically around six months for cats and dogs.

Can I wait for my pet to be older to spay or neuter them?

You can wait until your pet is an adult to spay or neuter them. Spaying or neutering can help prevent unwanted behaviors, such as marking, aggression, and roaming. It can also help prevent specific health issues like uterine infections and testicular cancer. Ultimately, the decision on when to spay or neuter your pet is up to you and your veterinarian and should be based on your pet's health and behavior.

These procedures are safe, and routine surgeries are performed under anesthesia. While there may be some discomfort during recovery, pain medication may be prescribed for your pet to help manage any discomfort.
