HOME > Services > Spay/Neuter
Another essential health service we offer at My Pet Hospital is spay and neuter for both cats and dogs. While some people use “neuter” to refer to all genders, others use it to refer to males and “spay” for female cats and dogs. Spaying is a common veterinary procedure where the ovaries and uterus of your female pet are removed. Neutering is a process whereby an experienced veterinarian removes your male pet’s testicles.
There are a few reasons why you should bring in your pet for spaying/neutering.
Your Pet Leads a Healthier Life
Spaying/neutering enables your cat or dog to live a healthier life, without common medical complications. Examples of the latter include testicular cancer and prostate problems for males and uterine infections such as pyometra and breast cancer for females. This means that you don’t have to spend a lot of money on your pet’s medical bills, and your furry pal can live a long and fulfilling life. To achieve this, we should perform the procedure before the cat or dog’s first heat.
No Unwanted Pregnancies
Spaying or neutering your pet is cost-effective. Do you know why? Your female cat or dog will not give birth, and you’ll only have to take care of one pet. It enables you to give your furry friend the best care without struggling financially.
We understand that you are concerned about the safety of your pet during spaying/neutering. We’ll do our best to ensure that no harm befalls your cat or dog before and after the procedure. To guarantee their comfort, we will administer anesthesia before the process starts. Additionally, we use state-of-the-art equipment for the surgery, and our pet surgeons come with years of experience.
We must confirm that your cat or dog is healthy before we even sedate it. Hence, our veterinarians will do a pre-surgical checkup to ensure that we are not endangering your pet’s health by operating on them.
