Spaying and/or neutering your pet provides many benefits. Spaying prevents females from becoming pregnant and reproducing. Neutering prevents male animals from reproducing. Both operations can help your dog or cat live a longer, healthier life. They will not change your pet's personality or make them fat or lazy. These procedures also help control the dog and cat overpopulation problem, keeping more animals out of shelters. For more information about these procedures, drop us a line at 519-969-7390.
How can spaying help my cat or dog?
By spaying your female pet, you're protecting her against potentially deadly diseases including bacterial infections, reproductive tract diseases, and several types of cancer. You also won't have to worry about her going into heat. This means avoiding the mess that often accompanies the heat cycle in female dogs, as well as the pacing and crying that happens with female cats.
How can neutering help my pet?
By neutering your furry friend, you're reducing or eliminating his risk for prostate and testicular cancer, perineal hernias, as well as sexually transmitted diseases. Neutering will also reduce or eliminate undesirable and embarrassing behaviour including roaming, fighting, humping, and spraying.
How are spays and neuters performed?
Spaying takes away the ovaries and uterus while neutering is the removal of the testicles. Both are surgical procedures and must be performed with the pet under general anesthesia. We follow strict protocols and continually monitor your pet's vital signs to help ensure their safety.
