Neutering your pet has many benefits. The procedure, which prevents male animals from reproducing, can help your dog or cat live a longer, healthier life. Neutering will not change your pet's personality.
By neutering your pet, you're reducing or eliminating his risk for prostate and testicular cancer, as well as sexually transmitted diseases. Neutering will also reduce or eliminate undesirable and embarrassing behavior, including roaming, fighting, humping, and spraying. In addition, neutering your pet will help control the dog and cat overpopulation problem, keeping more animals out of shelters.
A fairly common birth defect in dogs, but rare in cats, is a retained testicle in the abdomen. In this case neutering is essential, as the retained testicle frequently becomes cancerous.
Neutering is a surgical procedure which involves removing the testicles with your pet under general anesthesia. We follow strict standards of care and continually monitor your pet's vital signs to help ensure their safety.
