When you spay or neuter your pet, you help reduce overpopulation and the spread of disease and get the added bonus of several health and behavioural benefits for your pet. To learn more about our spay and neutering services, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 403-242-0045.
When should I spay/neuter my pet?
The procedure can safely be done for dogs at 6 months old and from 3 to 6 months old for cats. We recommend speaking to your veterinarian during your pet’s next veterinary exam as it depends on several factors such as their breed, size, and gender. The procedure can be safely performed at any time in their adult life, provided they are in good health.
What happens during the procedure?
Spaying and neutering is the surgical removal of your pet’s reproductive organs. The female’s uterus and ovaries are removed during spay surgery. The male’s testicles are removed during neuter surgery. Our top priority is ensuring a safe procedure for your pet, and we administer general anesthesia to ensure they are as comfortable as possible. Once the surgery is complete, our team will closely monitor your pet as they rest and recover.
What are the benefits of spaying and neutering my pet?
The procedure offers a range of health benefits for your pet. Not only do spayed and neutered pets have a longer lifespan, but they are also less likely to develop diseases such as ovarian or testicular cancer. They can also experience positive changes in their behaviour, such as reduced aggression, roaming, and barking.
