What is spaying and neutering surgery?
During spay and neuter surgery, we remove your pet’s reproductive organs. Through a small incision, the female’s uterus and ovaries are removed during spay surgery. While the male’s testicles are removed during neuter surgery. Both procedures are done under general anesthesia to ensure that your pet is comfortable through every step of the process. After the surgery is over, our team will closely monitor them while they recover and manage any pain they may be experiencing.
Why should I spay/neuter my pet?
Pets who have been spayed or neutered on average have a longer lifespan than those who are not. There are a range of health benefits to spaying and neutering your pet including:
- Less likely to develop certain diseases (such as cancer)
- Prevents uterine infections
