Spay & Neuter

        " Spay"

      Canine Spay has the medical term ovariohysterectomy, the removal of the uterus and ovaries in your female pet.  The surgery is performed through a small incision in the abdomen and requires general anesthesia.  Your veterinarian will recommend short-term pain medication, monitoring of the incision site at home, along with decreased activity for the first week after the procedure.

         " Neuter"

      Neutering is the term for castration, the removal of the testacies in the male pet.  The surgery is performed through a very small incision over or in front of the scrotum while the pet is anesthetized.  Your veterinarian may recommend short-term pain medication and monitoring of the incision site for the first week after surgery. 

     Benefits of Spay/Neuter  

      Pet overpopulation is a very serious problem and by allowing your cat or dog to have or father an unplanned litter, you are adding to the problem.  Finding good homes for your new family additions is not as easy as you may think and it is a huge responsibility not only to raise them but also when they leave to their new homes.  You also have the expense of vaccines, parasite control, toys and food for several puppies, and then any adults you will have will require the same. The health of the mother can be in jeopardy during delivery and she can even develop health problems during nursing.  You can avoid all potential problems, expense and heart ache by spay/neutering your pet.  

      Without the drive to mate, your pet may be quieter, and is not prone to want to seek out a mate.  The spayed female no longer attracts males along with their "advances". Females with not have a heat cycle bleeding on your carpet, furniture and bedding.  When spayed females are better in temperament, they tend to be more gentle and affectionate.  The neutered male no longer wants to find females to breed with.  He will not be marking his territory, which is your furniture, you walls, and all over your yard!  Males that are neutered also get along with other males and tend to stick around instead of roaming. 

     Spaying and neutering keep, your pet healthier.  They tend to have fewer health problems. Ovarian cysts, uterine infections that can go undetected until it is lethal, and cancer of the reproductive tract are no longer a concern for females. Studies show that pets spayed before puberty greatly reduce the chance of developing breast cancer than unspayed pets or those spayed later in life. For males testicular is not longer a concern, and the risk of prostate problems is reduced.
