Once your pet enters heat, some of their behaviours and habits are likely to change. Cats and dogs become sexually mature around 6-months-old, making them want to procreate. To prevent pets from becoming pregnant or fathering litters, many pet owners have chosen to have their pets spayed or neutered.
What is spay and neuter surgery?
Both types of surgery make pets infertile. A spay surgery is performed on female pets, where a small incision is made on their abdomen to remove the ovaries and uterus. Neuter surgery is performed on male pets where both testicles are removed. Our team uses anesthesia, modern equipment, and years of experience to carry out the surgeries. A registered veterinary technician continuously monitors your pet’s vital signs during the procedures. With monitoring devices, we reduce the risk of anesthetic complications and ensure that your loyal companion’s safety is always cared for.
Why should I consider spaying or neutering my pet?
Here are the benefits of having your pet spayed/neutered:
- Eliminate embarrassing behaviours like humping, spraying furniture or becoming aggressive towards other animals.
- Reduce stray and overpopulation in shelters.
- Preventing diseases of the reproductive organs. If your loyal companion doesn’t have the procedure, they are at a higher risk of developing prostate problems, testicular cancer and uterine infections.
How long will it take for my pet to recover?
Spaying and neutering are routine surgeries that usually take two weeks for your pet to recover from fully. Our team will provide pain medication to make the process easier for your pet. Some special instructions will include ensuring they don’t lick or scratch their surgery wound and administering pain medications on time.
