Our Phoenix Veterinarians at North Central Animal Hospital Provide Spay & Neuter Services

At North Central Animal Hospital, we understand that deciding whether to spay or neuter your dog or cat can be a difficult one. These procedures sterilize your pet and make it impossible for them to reproduce. Aside from helping to control overpopulation, these medical procedures actually help your pet's overall health and wellness. Our Phoenix veterinarians understand that your pet is an important part of the family, and we treat them with the respect and care that they deserve. If your puppy or kitten is nearing six months, it is time to consider scheduling their spay or neuter procedure.

Benefits of Spay & Neuter Procedures

The main benefit of these procedures is the decrease in the likelihood of certain conditions that affect your pet’s reproductive system. Spayed female pets are less likely to develop uterine infections and breast tumors while neutered male pets reduce their chances of testicular cancer.

The cost of spay and neuter procedures are also considerably less than the cost of medical care for a pet to give birth. Female pets will not experience going into heat every 6 months, and male pets often become less aggressive following the procedure. If you are not planning on breeding your pet, we highly recommend that they undergo sterilization.

When to Spay or Neuter Your Pet

If you are planning to have your puppy or kitten fixed, our veterinarians recommend within their first year, usually between 4-6 months of age. While the earlier the better, you can also consult our veterinarians about having your adult pets spayed or neutered as well. Our team is here to answer any questions that you may have and to address any concerns relating to the procedure and the use of anesthesia. We will also advise you on post-op care and how to help manage any pain that your pet may experience following the operation. 

Following sterilization, your pet's metabolism may decrease which makes it more important that they receive a nutritious diet that helps them maintain a healthy weight. The team at North Central Animal Hospital believes in comprehensive pet care that allows our four-legged friends to enjoy a vibrant and healthy life! We can help guide you through the process of finding the correct food for your pet's nutritional needs and activity level.
