Spay & Neuter
Spaying is a surgical procedure that renders your female dog or cat infertile. This procedure involves the removal of your pet’s ovaries and uterus, and is performed under a general anesthetic.
Neutering is a surgical procedure that renders your male dog or cat infertile. This procedure involves the removal of your pet’s testicles, and is performed under a general anesthetic.
Prevents overpopulation – Since many pets are euthanized for lack of a good home, these procedures are insurance against this practice.
Promotes health – The procedure helps prevent cancer, uterine infections, prostate problems and more.
Control behavior – Spaying and neutering reduces or eliminates many problem behaviors such as urine marking, aggression, and roaming.
