Pet Spay and Neuter

Surgery can be nerve-wracking for pet owners, especially if their companion is still a puppy or kitten. On the other hand, spay and neuter surgeries are key factors in keeping pets healthy as they age. Spay and neuter surgeries are among the most common treatments performed in veterinary medicine, and for a good reason, as they prevent undesired births and various problematic health and behavioral disorders.

The Benefits of Spay and Neuter Surgery
Male and female cats and dogs can benefit from being spayed or neutered. Some of the health and behavioral issues eliminated by this procedure include:

  • Eliminates the heat cycle and spotting in females
