Spay and Neuter Services
Female animals are spayed and male pets are neutered. In our office, these procedures are performed while your pet is under general anesthesia for their comfort. We administer pain medication as necessary for your pet's comfort as well.
In most cases, your pet can go home the same day. We recommend spaying and neutering for dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, and ferrets.
Benefits of spaying/neutering your pet include:
- Helps your pet live a longer, healthier life. Many animals develop tumors or other diseases in their reproductive organs that can be eliminated by spaying or neutering. Treating these complications can be more expensive than spaying or neutering procedure.
- Typically makes your pet a better, more affectionate companion.
- Eliminates spraying and marking of territory.
- Helps to prevent pet overpopulation which has led to shelters that are severely overburdened. This means that countless numbers of animals are put to sleep each year because there is no more room in these shelters.
Did you know your companion animal needs dental care too? Healthy teeth and gums can help your pet live a longer, healthier life. The buildup of tartar can lead to gingivitis, a painful gum infection which can eventually lead to endocarditis (heart valve infection) and pyelonephritis (severe kidney infection).
We recommend each pet be evaluated at each office visit to determine if he or she needs dental cleaning. We have the latest dental cleaning equipment available to veterinarians today, including an ultrasonic scaler. Our equipment can help each dental cleaning last longer and make dental cleaning easier for your pet. Dental cleaning usually consists of scaling and polishing the teeth, but may also include tooth extractions and antibiotic therapy when necessary.
Your pet's comfort before, during, and after a dental cleaning is also very important to us. That is why we provide appropriate pain medication during and after each dental procedure. During the dental procedure, your pet will be under general anesthesia; therefore we recommend that each animal receive at least a Complete Blood Count and Biochemical Screen to assess the safety of anesthesia for your pet. IV fluids may be administered during your pet's dental cleaning as necessary.
Keeping your pet's teeth healthy can help you save money, too. Routine work is always less expensive than emergencies.
