Pet Spay and Neuter

At Animal Care Clinic of Pingree Grove, we believe in the importance of neutering or spaying cats and dogs. Ideally, a spay or neuter is done early in life. We recommend spaying and neutering at 6 months of age but will make recommendations based on each individual pet. This safe surgery can provide them with a long and healthy life. You can rest assured your companion is in good hands, as our doctors perform these surgeries regularly.

In addition to preventing overpopulation, there are many additional long-term health benefits this procedure has for your pets. Spaying your female dogs and cats will reduce the risk of uterus infections and breast tumors and eliminate heat cycles. Neutering male dogs and cats reduces territorial behavior such as excessive urination, decreases risk of testicular or prostate cancer, and eliminates the desire to leave the house and wander.

Spayed and neutered pets can live a longer, healthier life.

Before every pet surgery, we perform a complete physical exam and blood work to ensure that our patients are healthy and ready for their procedure. Next, we take several important steps to prepare our patients and keep them comfortable during and after their surgery:

  • IV catheterization for giving fluids and medications
  • Appropriate pain management, including nerve blocks and non–steroidals
  • Monitoring of EKG, pulse oximetry, blood pressure, temperature and respiratory rate
  • Post-op laser therapy following more invasive/exploratory surgeries
  • Close observation after surgery to make sure patient awakens safely
