Do it for your pet

Neutering and spaying refer to the removal of an animal's reproductive organs - testicles in a male and ovaries and uterus in a female. The purpose of sterilization is to prevent the birth of unwanted litters, and there are additional health benefits for your pet:

  • Spaying a female greatly reduces the risk of uterine infections and breast cancer.
  • The procedure prevents males from getting testicular cancer.
  • The natural urge to reproduce creates anxiety when your pet is isolated. This fretfulness is avoided with spaying and neutering.
  • Males will go to great lengths to mate, escaping their homes, yards, and leashes. As they roam, they face many perils - traffic, fights with other males, parasites, and cruelty.

Your pet's comfort and welfare are our top priorities, as we perform the procedure in a state-of-the-art surgical suite with advanced diagnostics and monitoring instrumentation. Most animals recover quickly and uneventfully.

Do it for you

During an unaltered female cat's heat (the beginning of a reproductive cycle), she will broadcast her condition with frequent urination - sometimes in unexpected places - and yowling. When a female dog goes into season, she usually drops blood during the estrus cycle. Spaying your pet helps to control these behaviors.

A male neutered dog is less likely to exhibit aggressive behavior or leg humping when excited by female scents in the vicinity. Cat neutering reduces the temptation to mark territory with a spray of musky urine. Sterilized pets typically become calmer, more easily trained, and more focused on their human family members.

The cost of spaying and neutering your cat or dog is economical compared to the expenses of delivering and caring for a litter or medical care for injuries or diseases that could have been avoided.

Do it for the community

Every year, millions of unwanted kittens and puppies come into the world. Many end up euthanized or don't survive. Others become strays, which are a problem for the community, spreading parasites and illness, threatening wildlife, and contributing to vehicle accidents. Your responsible behavior helps to reduce overpopulation . . . and sets a terrific example for your children.
