Spaying involves the removal of the reproductive organs of a female pet, and neutering refers to the removal of the reproductive organs of a male pet. The main goal of a spay/neuter surgery is to prevent reproduction, but there are several other significant benefits associated with the procedure.
At Three Trails Animal Hospital, our highly-experienced veterinary surgeons are expertly trained to perform safe and effective spay and neuter surgeries. We recommend this procedure for all pets under our care that will not be purposefully and responsibly bred. Generally, we recommend pets be spayed or neutered between 5-12 months of age, or before they reach sexual maturity.
As with both spay and neuter surgeries, we will perform an extensive preoperative examination and blood panel to ensure your pet’s safety and health for anesthesia and surgery. Recovery typically simple and involves minimal aftercare.
