About Our Spaying and Neutering Services:

Spaying (for females) and neutering (for males) are surgical procedures that involve the removal of reproductive organs. These services offer numerous health and behavioral benefits for your pet:

  • Health Benefits:
    Reduced Risk of Reproductive Health Issues: Spaying eliminates the risk of uterine infections and reduces the risk of mammary gland tumors in females. Neutering reduces the risk of testicular cancer and prostate problems in males.
    Prevention of Unwanted Pregnancies: Spaying and neutering prevent unplanned litters, reducing the number of homeless animals.
  • Behavioral Benefits:
    Diminished Roaming and Aggression: Neutered males are less likely to roam and exhibit aggressive behaviors.
    Reduced Heat-Related Behavior: Spaying eliminates heat cycles in females, preventing behaviors associated with mating.
  • Contribution to Community Welfare:
    Control of Stray Animal Population: By spaying and neutering, pet owners contribute to controlling the population of stray and feral animals, promoting a healthier community.
  • Compassionate Care and Recovery:
    Professional Surgical Expertise: Dr. Alexis Kessler and our experienced veterinary team ensure that spaying and neutering procedures are conducted with the utmost care and professionalism.
