Spay and Neuter Services

Spaying or neutering your puppy or kitten will give them the best start possible and may help your pet live a longer, healthier life. Additionally spaying and neutering can help reduce unwanted litters and animal overpopulation which contributes to overcrowding in shelters, and millions of stray animals. While we are dedicated to pet adoption, we've seen the harmful effects from lack of spaying/neutering. With over a million cats and dogs that are euthanized every year due to overpopulation, we hope to do our part to change that statistic.

Benefits of a spay or neuter?

Prevent dogs and cats from entering their heat cycle

Reduce inappropriate mounting behaviors and aggression in male dogs

Reduce spraying/marking in male cats

Reduce chances of developing mammary tumors and uterine infections in females 

Reduce chances of developing prostate issues and testicular tumors in males

When is the best time to have my pet spayed or neutered?

Typically it is recommended to spay or neuter prior to the first heat cycle or sexual maturation in order to maximize your pet's health benefits. Usually that means your pet is between 6-7 months old. Many times large breed dogs grow and mature at a slower rate which means a spay or neuter very well could wait until 9 months to one year. Every pet is different and our veterinarians will examine your pet's healthy thoroughly prior to moving forward with surgery. 
Make an appointment with us today to discuss what to expect with a spay or neuter procedure and how it can benefit your pet's health.
