Spaying or neutering your pet early in life offers many advantages:
- Prevents unwanted pregnancies and limits pet over-population
- Eliminates the possibility of infections and tumors of the reproductive tract
- Diminishes chances of developing mammary cancer (females)
- Diminishes chances of developing prostatic disease (male dogs)
- Avoids unwanted roaming and aggressive behaviors
Spay: (also called ovariohysterectomy) surgical removal of the ovaries and uterus. While a spay surgery is commonly performed, it is important to remember that the procedure is a major abdominal surgery.
Neuter: (also called castration) surgical removal of the testicles.
Both of these procedures require general anesthesia. Your pet will be monitored closely throughout the entire procedure by our well-trained staff to ensure your pet’s safety.
When your pet goes home:
- You will need to monitor the incision to ensure normal healing. Before your pet leaves the clinic, we will show you what the incision looks like. The incision should stay clean and dry.
- Do not allow your pet to lick or chew the incision.
- Your recovering pet needs to be rested – no running or jumping until the incision has completely healed. Overactivity can lead to complications such as bleeding and infection.
- Limit food and water intake according to take-home instructions.
- Administer pain relief medications according to directions.
Call the clinic if:
- The incision opens, becomes swollen or develops a dischar
- Your pet has any vomiting, diarrhea or lack of an appetite
