Spay and neutering are surgical procedures that are performed on cats and dogs. During spay surgery, the female's ovaries and uterus are removed and during a neuter surgery, the male's testicles are removed. As with any other surgery our team uses general anesthesia to keep the pet comfortable and prevent them from feeling pain. To schedule a spay or neuter surgery for your pet, please call us at 705-431-5570.
Why should my pet be spayed?
This surgery is a good fit for female dogs and cats for the following reasons:
- No unwanted pregnancies
- Prevents them from developing ovarian cancer
- Prevents mammary tumours
- Reduced bacterial infections
- Increased lifespan
What are the benefits of neutering my cat or dog?
During heat, male cats and dogs tend to be more territorial; this will cause them to be aggressive and spray furniture. Once they are neutered, these behaviours are eliminated. Neutering will also stop male pets from roaming to find a mate and humping humans or objects. Additionally, neuter surgery can prevent cats and dogs from developing testicular and prostate cancers. This surgery is recommended when they are around 6-months-old, but they can also have the procedure at a later age provided they are healthy.
