Spaying and neutering are recommended procedures for all cats and dogs, to reduce the population of unwanted animals that must be euthanized by community services and to help animals avoid reproductive diseases that can threaten their lives. Ovariohysterectomy is the removal of the internal reproductive organs of a female animal. Orchiectomy is the removal of the testes of a male animal. These procedures prevent animals from reproducing. They also prevent the development of reproductive cancers and other diseases that are expensive to treat and can shorten the life of your pet. Spaying and neutering your pet also helps the community by reducing the number of unwanted animals that must be dealt with at taxpayer expense. These procedures help to prevent the nuisance wandering of animals that are looking for mates, as well as reducing aggressive behavior. For these reasons, veterinarians recommend spaying and neutering for all pets as a part of good veterinary care.

Your Veterinarian in Phoenix Provides Spaying and Neutering Surgery

Spay and neuter surgery is recognized as a safe way to prevent unwanted litters of puppies and kittens and an effective method of avoiding diseases of the reproductive system. A Phoenix animal hospital can ensure the procedures are done safely, with no negative effects. Millions of pets undergo spay and neuter surgery each year with few complications. Your pet will generally spend the day at the animal clinic to ensure that there are no problems after the surgery. You will be provided with pain medications and instructions on care when you take your pet home from the pet clinic. The owner should restrict the animal’s activity for a few days while the incision heals. Sutures usually do not need to be removed but we recheck the healing process after a week or two before they resume normal activity.
