We firmly believe in spaying/neutering your pets. It's the best way to reduce the canine and feline population rate and help keep the shelters from overflowing. Spaying and neutering also helps, or prevents, certain medical and behavioral issues that could arise from intact pets.
The recommended time to spay or neuter your pet is between the ages of 4 - 6 months to avoid possible breeding or heat cycles. This does not mean your pet can not be spayed or neutered after the recommended time.
By making sure that your pet can't have puppies or kittens, you'll have peace of mind that his or her offspring will not be euthanized in an animal shelter. Many people are surprised to learn that, nationwide, more than 3 million cats and dogs are euthanized in shelters. You might think that these are animals born in the streets or there is something "wrong" with them. But often they are the offspring of cherished family pets, even purebreds. Maybe someone's dog or cat got out just that one time or maybe the litter was intentional, but efforts to find enough good homes failed.
There are more pets entering shelters than there are people willing to provide them with loving care. Even if you do find homes for your pet's puppies or kittens, that means there are fewer homes available for other pets from shelters. Spay/neuter is the only permanent, 100 % effective method of birth control for dogs and cats.
Safe and Effective
Licensed veterinarians perform the spay or neuter operation while the pet is under anesthesia. Depending on your pet's age, size and health, he or she will stay at your veterinarian's office for a few hours or a few days. Depending upon the procedure, your pet may need stitches removed. Your veterinarian can fully explain spay and neuter procedures to you. If you have a new puppy or kitten, don't wait! Pets can become parents sooner than you think. Early age spay/neuter is safe and effective, so talk with your veterinarian at your pet's first visit.
