Here at Oakbrook Animal Hospital, serving Gardner and Olathe, we offer spaying and neutering for dogs and cats so that you can prevent pregnancy and keep your beloved family pet healthy. In addition to providing your pet with health benefits, spaying and neutering also helps your neighborhood and your community by reducing pet homelessness and overcrowding at shelters and preventing car accidents from runaway pets that are looking for a mate.
Benefits of Spaying Female Pets with Our Veterinarian in Gardner
Spaying your female dog or cat with our veterinarian in Gardner prevents unwanted litters and the desire to vocalize or roam in order to find a mate. Since the uterus is completely removed, you will no longer have to worry about uterine infections. Your pet's likelihood of developing breast tumors will decrease, and you will be helping to prevent homeless pets.
Benefits of Neutering with Our Gardner Veterinarian
Neutering your male pet with our Gardner veterinarian involves the complete removal of the testes. Once the testes are removed, your pet's likelihood of developing testicular cancer is greatly reduced. Removing the testicles can also prevent unwanted behaviors, like spraying or marking territory and running away in order to find a mate. You may even notice that your male pet is less aggressive.
When to Sterilize Your Pet at Our Animal Hospital
Male and female pets can generally be spayed or neutered between the ages of two and six months. This will depend on your pet's weight, breed and size. If you are unsure as to whether your pet is old enough to be spayed or neutered, feel free to call our veterinarians. Dr. Tom Buckley and Dr. Larry Garten, would be happy to discuss your pet with you and determine the best time to perform the sterilization surgery.
