This is a very important procedure in the life of a Pet. This helps them to:
Prevent unintentional mating
Prevents breast cancer and prostate disease later in life
Prevents uterine infections and testicular cancer
In certain situations prevents behaviour issues
Time at which these procedures are performed:
We strongly recomment spaying and neutering around 5-6 months of age. This is ideal before puberty is reached.
What precautions we take
Though done routinely, these are major procedures. We recommend all Spays and large neuters have pre-surgical blood work done and be placed on IV fluids. This minimizes anesthetic risk.
All surgeries are monitored by trained technicians in presence of our Doctors
Post-operative pain control is our forte’. We don’t want our furry partners to chew away at the incision so they are protected with a neck-collar. We place sub-cutaneous sutures (hidden) to minimize irritation. Exceptions are there when skin sutures are required (very hyperactive dogs, very large breed dogs)
Appointments can be made with front desk. We would like to examine the pets prior to surgery
All vaccines should be up to date.
If you are not our client, no problem, bring your paper work indicating vaccination history and or past issues, if any.
Though we do require all spays and large neuters to be on IV fluids and have pre-surgical blood work done, we have placed them as options, due to differing financial situations. However, we strongly recommended to get IV fluids and pre-surgical blood work done to minimize anesthetic risks.
