Besides vaccinations, spaying and neutering your pet is one of the best things that you can do for them!
When you spay and neuter your pets, you give them a better chance at a happy life! They often live longer because they are less likely to run away, get in fights, or get hit by cars. They are less likely to get certain types of cancers. Females are less likely to get pyometras and other deadly diseases. Males are less likely to spray and have other behavioral problems!
Spaying and neutering your pets also helps with the overpopulation of animals. There are way too many animals that are euthanized each year because no one can adopt them.
When your pet is scheduled for a surgical procedure in our clinic, they will need to be checked in the morning of the appointment between 7:30 am and 9 am. Your pet will need to be fasted for the sedation, NO FOOD AFTER MIDNIGHT. Water is ok until you drop off your pet. If you opt for pre-surgical bloodwork, we will perform that prior to anesthetizing your pet. This bloodwork will allow your veterinarian to know if your pet has any health concerns prior to being anesthetized.
You will receive a phone call from the surgery nurse when your pet is in recovery with a discharge time for your pet.
