Spay and Neuter

If you have a pet cat or dog one of the most important health decisions you will make is to spay
or neuter them.


There are many benefits to controlling the pet population, by deciding to spay (female pets) or neuter (male pets), you will help control over the overpopulation crisis which results in millions of dogs and cats being euthanized each year in animal shelters.

But additionally, you will be improving your pet’s health and quality of life as well. These are just some of the benefits of spaying and neutering your pets:

  • Longer healthier lives for female pets. Spaying your female dog or cat can prevent uterine infections and mammary tumors.
  • Neutering your male dog prevents prostatic problems and can deter testicular cancer.
  • Male pets will be less likely to wander away from home.
  • Female pets won’t go into heat, and male dogs and cats won’t be roaming around your property.
  • Neutered male pets are better behaved, and some aggressive behaviors may be avoided.


In addition to our routine spay and neutering service, we also perform many other types of surgeries like:

  • Mass removals
  • C-sections in pregnant female pets
  • Abdominal exploratory surgery
  • Certain Orthopedic Procedures
  • Many Soft Tissue Surgeries

Please contact us for a potential surgery consultation.
