The Benefits of Spay and Neuter Surgeries

Spay and neuter surgeries are not only routine but also vital for your pet’s long-term health. These procedures help prevent unwanted pregnancies and offer health benefits such as:

  • For Females: Spaying helps dogs and cats avoid serious infections such as pyometra and lowers the risk of various cancers, including mammary gland tumors. It also stops the heat cycle and can decrease disruptive behaviors influenced by hormones.
  • For Males: Neutering can prevent conditions like testicular cancer and prostate complications, and it often reduces behaviors associated with male hormones such as aggression and marking territory.

We will evaluate the best timing for these surgeries during your pet’s examination, considering their specific health conditions, breed, and lifestyle, to ensure the best health outcomes.

Surgical Care and Protocol at Our Hospital

We recognize that surgery can be a source of uncertainty for many pet owners, which is why we prioritize clear and comprehensive communication. Before surgery, we perform a detailed exam and blood tests to check organ function to ensure your pet is ready for anesthesia.

Our surgical procedures include:

  • IV catheter placement for quick fluid and medication administration.
  • Careful monitoring of vital signs like heart rate and blood pressure during anesthesia, with the ability to safely adjust the anesthetic as needed for your pet.
  • Post-operative care in a warm, comforting setting, with our team continuously monitoring your pet.

What to Expect on the Day of Your Pet’s Surgery

Your pet should not eat for about 12 hours before surgery, but they can have some water. Upon arrival, they will receive appropriate sedation and pain management heading into their surgery. Our dedicated team follows strict protocols to maintain your pet’s comfort and safety during the procedure.

When your pet is out of surgery, we keep a close eye on their recovery and will notify you when your pet is ready to be picked up and returned home. We provide detailed instructions for home care and encourage you to call us at (954) 473-8090 with any questions about your pet’s recovery or other concerns.
