What to Expect
When should I spay or neuter my pet?
It is recommended that you have your pet spayed or neutered around six months of age.
What happens before, during, and after the procedure?
It is recommended to have blood work completed to check the blood cell count and organ function, so they will be less likely to face unexpected consequences from the surgery or anesthetic.
Before the procedure begins, your pet will be given anesthetic, either general or local. You can also opt for the less invasive laser surgical procedure if you choose to.
After the procedure, your pet may be given an e-collar to prevent them from licking or chewing their incision and prevent infection if necessary.
