Spay and Neuters

Spaying is a surgical procedure where both the ovaries and the uterus (reproductive organs) are removed from a female animal so that she cannot reproduce. This surgery is performed under general anesthesia. 

Neutering is a surgical procedure where both the testicles (reproductive organs) are removed from a male animal so that he cannot reproduce. Proper pain management, anesthesia, injectable pain medications, are used during the procedure to make the animal as comfortable as possible.

  • Spaying and neutering can reduce the incidence of some of the most common types of cancers, making it likelier for animals to live a longer and healthier life.

  • The cost of spaying and neutering a pet is less than the cost of raising puppies or kittens for one year.

  • Un-neutered or un-spayed dogs are more prone to urine marking, excessive barking, and dominance related issues than neutered dogs.

  • Neutering solves 70% of all marking issues in cats. It can also minimize howling, the urge to roam, and fighting with other cats.

  • Spaying and neutering will contribute to the prevention of dog/cat overpopulation.
