Have your Pets Spayed or Neutered! We all know that spaying and castrating your pet prevents unwanted litters of puppies or kittens but did you know that there are several health benefits for your pet as well? Spaying your cat or dog prior to their first heat cycle will decrease her chances of mammary cancer by over 98%. While we recommend spaying your pet prior to 6 months of age, there’s no age that the procedure cannot be performed. Middle aged and older intact females are predisposed to developing a pyometra, or infection of the uterus which can be fatal and conditions such as epilepsy and diabetes can be difficult to control due to the hormone fluctuations. And your un-neutered male dog or cat can be predisposed to their own health concerns too. Neutering reduces the risk of age-related prostate enlargement (benign prostatic hypertrophy) and eliminated the risk of testicular cancer as well as reducing the risk of perianal adenomas. Your spayed or neutered pet often is less territorial, less apt to roam, and generally less aggressive in addition to minimizing unwanted habits such behavioral marking (urinating on household items) and "humping" behavior. If you have questions about spaying or neutering your pet, young or old, please contact our office. During the month of May, we are offering 10% off the price of the procedure. Call to schedule your pet's surgery today! If you would like to get your pet scheduled or have any questions please call us at 614-491-5676
