Spay and Neuter
Spaying or neutering your pet can help them live a longer, healthier life, minimizes behavior problems and helps control the population of unwanted pets.
Spaying - Spaying is a surgical procedure in which both ovaries and uterus are completely removed from your female pet. Also called an "Ovariohysterectomy", the surgery is performed while your pet is under general anesthesia. There are many benefits to spaying your female companion including eliminating the 'messy' heat cycles or preventing diseases in your pet such as Pyometra (infection in the uterus) and mammary cancer. Additionally, research has shown that pets that have been spayed live longer than pets that have not been spayed.
Neutering - Neutering refers to the surgical procedure in which both testicles are removed. There are many benefits to neutering your male companion including eliminating undesirable sexual behaviors in your male companion and preventing diseases such as prostate disease and testicular cancer.
