Spay and Neuter

There are several reasons to either spay or neuter your pet regardless of whether or not you plan on housing him inside or outside. One reason to have this procedure completed is to reduce the amount of behavioral issues that arise in pets. If you have ever watched a cat decide to mark its territory in your home, then you have had experience some of these issues.

Benefits of Spaying/Neutering

Spaying or neutering your dogs and cats can provide many health benefits, along with preventing unwanted puppies or kittens. We recommend to spay and neuter when your pet is around 6 months of age, after their series of vaccinations are complete.

Some of the health benefits include:

  • Decreased risk of mammary cancer in females
  • Decreased risk of prostate problems in males
  • Potential prevention of inappropriate urination in males

Advanced Monitoring

Even though spaying and neutering is considered a “routine” surgery, there still are risks as in any anesthetic procedure. At Cole Veterinary Hospital, we offer a range of pre-surgical diagnostics in order to prepare everyone for your pet’s procedure. We offer advanced monitoring by a licensed technician throughout the entire procedure and recovery period, and pain medication before, during, and after the procedure.
