Ask Our Veterinarian in Gardner: What is Spaying and Neutering?
As your local spay and neuter veterinarian in Gardner, we believe it’s important to educate pet owners on the importance of this valuable service. By being proactive and choosing to spay or neuter your pet, you can easily help control the pet homelessness crisis in the US, help to curb behavioral issues for your pet and keep them safe from many common health issues.
Surgical sterilization or spaying (female pets) and neutering (male pets), is a safe and affordable service provided by our Gardner veterinarian. This safe and effective surgery is performed while your pet is under general anesthesia and is safe for most pets as early as 2 to 6 months of age.
What Are the Additional Benefits of Spaying or Neutering My Pets?
Some of the medical and behavioral benefits of scheduling a neuter or spay in Gardner with our experienced veterinarian team include:
- Your cat or dog will live a longer and healthier life! Spaying and neutering helps to prevent uterine infections, breast tumors, prostate issues, testicular cancer and much more.
- Pets won’t go into heat or wander from home. You no longer have to worry about your pets looking for a mate. This means female pets won’t go into heat and your male pets will stay safely at home.
- Pets are much less likely to experience other behavioral issues. When pets are not spayed or neutered, they are much more likely to mark their territory, even inside your home! With the procedure they are also less likely to mount other animals and many aggressive actions can be deterred as well.
- You’ll never have to worry about unexpected kittens or puppies. While they are sweet and cute, unwanted puppies and kittens can put a great deal of financial and moral stress on your family. Avoid the added responsibility of unplanned litter by investing in affordable spay and neuter services with our experienced Olathe veterinarian.
When Should I Spay or Neuter My Pet?
Once upon a time it was believed that pets should not be spayed or neutered until they were at least 1 year old. But with advances in veterinary care, we know understand that pets can be spayed or neutered as early as 2 months old. Because each pet is different, we will work closely with your to determine the best time to spay or neuter your family pets.
