Spaying and Neutering Services

If you do not plan to breed your cat or dog, you should seriously consider having them spayed or neutered. Unexpected breeding accounts for many of the animals surrendered to shelters and humane societies.

Spaying and neutering can help prevent unwanted behavior such as aggression and urine marking. It can also significantly reduce the risk of certain diseases.

The procedure is usually performed after six months of age. It requires full general anesthesia, but your pet will go home the same day as the surgery.
