Spaying and Neutering

Spaying and neutering are the most common types of veterinary surgery. Spaying is the surgical removal of a female animal's reproductive organs, while neutering is the removal of a male animal's testicles. These procedures are typically performed on cats and dogs, but can also be done on other animals such as rabbits and ferrets.

Benefits of Spaying and Neutering

There are many benefits to spaying and neutering your pets. For female animals, spaying can prevent unwanted pregnancies and reduce the risk of certain types of cancer. For male animals, neutering can help reduce aggressive behavior and prevent testicular cancer. Additionally, spaying and neutering can help control the pet population and reduce the number of animals in shelters.

Preparing for Surgery

If your pet is scheduled for surgery, we will provide you with specific instructions on how to prepare. This may include withholding food and water for a certain amount of time before the surgery, as well as any necessary medications. It's important to follow these instructions carefully to ensure the safety and success of the procedure.

Post Surgery Care Tips

Follow the Veterinarian's Instructions

The first and most important step in post-surgery care is to follow the instructions given by our team. We know your pet's specific needs and will provide you with the necessary information for a successful recovery. This may include administering medication, changing bandages, or limiting your pet's activity.

Create a Comfortable Environment

Your pet will need a quiet and comfortable place to rest and recover after surgery. Make sure to provide them with a warm and soft bed, away from any loud noises or distractions. 

Provide Proper Nutrition

A healthy and balanced diet is crucial for your pet's recovery. We may recommend a specific diet or supplements to aid in the healing process. Make sure to follow our recommendations and provide your pet with plenty of fresh water to stay hydrated. Avoid giving your pet any table scraps or treats that may interfere with their recovery.

Limit Activity

Your pet will need to rest and limit their activity during the recovery period. This may mean keeping them in a confined area or using a leash when taking them outside. Avoid any strenuous activities or rough play that could cause harm to the incision site. We will provide you with a timeline for when your pet can resume their normal activities.
