In the meantime, read on for more information on spaying.

What Is Spaying and When Should It Be Done?

Spaying is the surgical removal of the female reproductive organs, primarily the ovaries and uterus. The goal of spaying is to prevent pregnancy but may also be done to prevent certain health conditions. Talk a vet on our team about when this important part of puppy and kitten care should be performed on your pet.

Benefits of Spaying

Aside from not adding to the already overpopulated cat and dog community, spaying has other behavioral and health benefits including:

●          Eliminating the chances of uterine and ovarian cancer

●          Reduced risk of infection

●          Reduced risk of mammary tumors

●          Eliminates uncomfortable heat cycles

●          Eliminates messes from heat cycle

●          No running or wandering looking to mate

●          Calmer and more affectionate

●          Increases life spans and overall health

What Happens the Day of Surgery?

Anesthesia will be administered and vitals will be monitored during the surgery. Your pet will require stitches and will remain at the animal hospital to be monitored for a short time. Most animals go home the same day with a collar to prevent them from interacting with the incision.

What Should I Expect at Home?

It's normal for your pet to be sleepy after surgery. She may not feel like eating. Let her rest in a quiet space. Don't engage them in any strenuous activity for some time and follow all instructions from the vet.
