At what age can I have my pet spayed or neutered?
We recommend spaying or neutering be done at approximately 6 months of age though it may vary depending on your pet’s breed. Your pet will be examined prior to surgery to help determine whether your pet is healthy enough to undergo the surgical procedure. Current vaccinations are required at the time of surgery and a pre-anesthetic blood screening will be performed prior to anesthesia.
What is the pre-anesthetic blood screening?
This is a blood test that is run here in the clinic prior to surgery. It tests the organ functions, blood count, and clotting function of your pet. The pre-anesthetic blood screening is done to assure safety during surgery and the ability to heal following surgery.
How long do the sutures stay in after my pet’s surgery?
Procedures involving sutures require them to be removed generally in 10-14 days following the surgery. Resorptive internal sutures are used for most routine procedures and thus there are no sutures that will need to be removed.
Will my pet come home the same day?
For the vast majority of our surgical procedures, your pet will be able to go home that same afternoon.
Is it a good idea to let my pet have at least one litter?
No, there is no advantage to letting your pet have one litter. However, there are plenty of advantages to having your pet spayed or neutered. These advantages include decreasing the chances of breast tumors later in life, decreasing the chance of cystic ovaries and uterine infections later in life, decreasing the desire to roam the neighborhood, decreasing the incidence of prostate cancer later in life, helping prevent spraying and marking, and also decreases the surplus of unwanted puppies and kittens.
Who takes care of your fish tank?
