Spay and neuter procedures are perhaps the most common and routine of all surgical categories, but it is still important that it
be done by a competent and caring staff that does not treat it cavalierly- a staff that will tailor the procedure and the care to your pet based on their breed, age, and temperament. The benefits of spaying and neutering pets should not be taken lightly. Spaying and neutering prevents pet overpopulation, thereby reducing animal suffering and the burden of overcrowded animal shelters. Sexual sterilization also eliminates the risk for uterine, ovarian and testicular cancer, as well as reducing the risk of mammary cancer, pyometra, and prostatitis. It often reduces aggression, roaming, and other "heat"-fueled behaviors that can get your pet into trouble.
