Spay and Neuter

Spaying and neutering your pets is a crucial step in responsible pet ownership. Not only does it have numerous health benefits for your pets, but it also helps control the pet population and reduce the number of animals in shelters.

Spaying and neutering has numerous health benefits for your pet. For female pets, spaying eliminates the risk of uterine infections and reduces the risk of breast cancer. For male pets, neutering can prevent testicular cancer and reduce the risk of prostate problems.

Additionally, spaying and neutering can also help reduce certain behaviors in pets, such as roaming, marking, and aggression. This can make them easier to train and more enjoyable to be around.

What to Expect During Your Pet’s Surgery

Before your pet's surgery, we will perform a thorough physical exam and may also run blood work to ensure your pet is healthy enough for surgery. We will also discuss the procedure with you and answer any questions you may have.

On the day of the surgery, your pet will be given anesthesia to ensure they are comfortable and pain-free during the procedure. We will monitor your pet's vital signs throughout the surgery to ensure their safety.

After the surgery, your pet will be moved to a recovery area where they will be closely monitored until they are awake and able to stand. Depending on the type of surgery, your pet may need to stay for a few hours or overnight for observation.

Preparing for Your Pet's Surgery

Follow Pre-Surgery Instructions

Before your pet's surgery, we will provide you with specific instructions to follow. These may include withholding food and water for a certain amount of time before the surgery or giving your pet medication to prepare for the procedure.

It's important to follow these instructions carefully to ensure the best possible outcome for your pet. If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to reach out to your us for clarification.

Arrange for Post-Surgery Care

After your pet's surgery, they will need a quiet and comfortable place to recover. Make sure you have a designated area set up at home with a soft bed and easy access to food and water. Your veterinarian may also prescribe pain medication for your pet, so make sure you have it on hand and know how to administer it.

If your pet requires any special care or restrictions during their recovery, make sure you are prepared to provide it. This may include limiting their activity or keeping them from licking or chewing at their incision site.

Post-Surgery Care for Your Pet

Follow Post-Surgery Instructions

After your pet's surgery, we will provide you with specific instructions for their post-surgery care. This may include administering medication, changing bandages, or limiting their activity. It's important to follow these instructions carefully to ensure your pet's incision heals properly and they have a smooth recovery.

Monitor Your Pet's Incision

It's important to keep a close eye on your pet's incision site after surgery. Check for any signs of infection, such as redness, swelling, or discharge. If you notice any concerning changes, contact your us immediately.

Keep Your Pet Comfortable

Your pet may experience some discomfort after surgery, so it's important to keep them comfortable during their recovery. This may include providing a soft bed, using a cone to prevent them from licking or chewing at their incision, and giving them any prescribed pain medication.
