Spaying is also known as an ovariohysterectomy, is a common surgical procedure performed on female cats and dogs that removes their uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes, rendering the animal incapable of reproducing. We can discuss what age is best for spaying your pet based on current research.

Benefits of spaying your pet:

  • Prevents unwanted pregnancies
  • Eliminates the risk of ovarian and uterine tumors
  • Removes the possibility of uterine infections

Neutering, or castrating, removes the testicles of male animals, making them unable to impregnate females. We can discuss what age is best for neutering based on the current research.
