Spays and Neuters

Spaying or neutering your pet around 6 months of age is recommended, although it may be done sooner.

Advantages to performing these procedures include:

Female Pets (Spay)

  • Prevents unwanted pregnancies
  • Helps control the pet population
  • Reduces the risk of mammary cancer
  • Eliminates the risk of pyometra, a life threatening infection of the uterus
  • Eliminates estrus: frustrating behaviours in cats, messy in dogs

Male Pets (Neuter)

  • Reduces the risk of prostate problems
  • Eliminates testicular cancers
  • Reduces the occurrence of rectal tumors
  • Can help with behaviours such as urine marking, mounting, roaming and aggression
