Spaying & Neutering
We provide spaying and neutering services for your cat and dog in a sterile and hygienic environment, using only the best tools and medication.
Owning a pet comes with responsibilities that go beyond just feeding your furry friend and getting them treated when sick. You must make some important decisions about your pet’s well-being. Like a parent (which you now are), you have to make sure they’re given the right care at the right time to prevent future problems. This includes vaccinations, the right nutrition, and young-age treatments such as spaying & neutering.
The Benefits of Spaying & Neutering
Spaying (for females) and neutering (for males) is a surgical process by which the ovaries in female pets and testicles in male pets are removed to prevent them from reproducing. Spaying and neutering have many health benefits for pets. It is also great for pet offspring in that it saves them from euthanization carried out due to the overpopulation of unwanted animals.
Spaying & neutering also stop the production of certain hormones that affect the behaviour of pets. As such, you can expect your pet to live longer and avoid exhibiting certain negative behaviour. Spaying and neutering improve quality of life – not just for your pet, but for you, too!
For Female Pets
For your female cat or dog, spaying ensures that they are unable to reproduce, keeping the population in control and preventing the birth of unwanted pets. Removing the ovaries also eliminates the agitation caused by heat cycles, preventing the issue of roaming. Animals roam because they are looking for a mate. Without the need to reproduce, there will be no need for your animal to roam, nor will roaming males gather in your backyard, trying to woo your pet.
Not only does spaying solve the issues associated with reproduction, but it also improves your pet’s quality of life and wellness. It reduces the risks of uterine infections, mammary tumours, and cancers. Spaying also saves your pet from pregnancy-related issues, such as abortion, undernourishment, and C-section.
For Male Pets
Neutering is beneficial for male cats and dogs in different ways. Neutering keeps them from mating, which keeps the population of unwanted pets in check and reduces roaming. Once neutered, male cats and dogs do not mark their territories by urinating (in most cases), and there are fewer fights and aggressive behaviour with other males that they encounter. Also, it protects them from several cancers and tumours, such as prostate cancer and testicular tumours.
What is the Right Age for Spaying and Neutering?
Generally, a pet should be spayed or neutered after they are 6 months old and, at least, before their first heat cycle. These criteria ensure that your pet is young enough to have not started the production of sexual hormones and old enough that their baby teeth have been replaced by adult teeth, and they can withstand the effects of anesthesia.
