What to Expect
Prior to surgery, our team is happy to answer any questions you have and walk you through the process of cat and dog sterilization. We will perform a comprehensive examination and assess your pet’s vaccination history to make sure they’re healthy. We will also create an anesthesia plan based on your pet’s individual needs and provide pre- and post-operative care instructions to ensure a smooth procedure and successful recovery.
The Importance of Spay and Neuter Surgeries
Our team recommends spaying or neutering all pets between 6 to 8 months of age after they have received their puppy or kitten vaccinations to provide them with optimal health benefits and prevent unwanted behaviors. For male and female dogs and cats, spaying and neutering can help them to live happier, healthier lives, including:
• Preventing negative behavior such as spraying, mounting and roaming
• Reduced risk of prostate and testicular cancer
• Preventing uncomfortable heat cycles
• Decreased chance of pyometra and mammary cancer
In addition, dog and cat sterilization can help control the homeless pet population in Henry County. Did you know 1.5 million shelter animals are euthanized each year? This procedure can help reduce the pressure on animal shelters and save the lives of healthy pets. Woodland Animal Hospital is fully equipped with advanced technology to perform spay and neuter surgeries for your pet and help them live long and healthy lives by your side.
