Health Benefits of Spaying and Neutering

The benefits of spaying and neutering extend beyond preventing unwanted pregnancies. For female pets, spaying eliminates the risk of uterine infections and significantly reduces the risk of mammary tumors. For male pets, neutering eliminates the risk of testicular cancer and reduces the risk of prostate problems. Additionally, they can help curb unwanted behaviors, such as roaming, aggression, and urine marking.

What to Expect during the Procedure

Spaying and neutering are routine surgical procedures performed under general anesthesia. Your pet will be monitored closely throughout the process to ensure their safety and comfort. The veterinarian will make a small incision, remove the reproductive organs, and close the incision with sutures. Most pets recover quickly and are back to their normal activities within a short time.

Post-Operative Care

After the procedure, it's important to follow your veterinarian's instructions for post-operative care. This may include restricting your pet's activity, monitoring the incision site for signs of infection, and providing painkillers.
