Spay and Neuter

Cat and Dog Neutering and Spaying in Shorewood

Although puppies and kittens are adorable, many of them end up in animal shelters due to overpopulation. In order to reduce this problem, veterinarians offer spay and neuter services. At Bayshore Veterinary Clinic, we offer cat and dog neutering and spaying, which offers health benefits and helps curb overpopulation.

Spay and Neuter Services for Shorewood Pets

Spay and neuter services for Shorewood pets are procedures that are done to prevent cats and dogs from reproducing. Although pets need to be under general anesthesia, these procedures are considered very safe. They are also some of the most common surgical procedures done on pets. Spaying involves the removal of reproductive organs in female dogs and cats, while neutering involves removing the testicles of male dogs and cats. 

Benefits of Dog and Cat Neutering and Spaying

Dog and cat neutering and spaying does more than just cut down on the pet overpopulation problem. It also provides some important health benefits for pets. Spaying lowers the risk of uterine cancer, as well as other types of reproductive system cancers, in female cats and dogs. Female pets that are spayed also have a lower risk of uterine infections. Male pets have a reduced risk of testicular cancer after being neutered. 

Neutering and spaying also have a positive impact on pets in terms of behavior. When dogs and cats are spayed or neutered, they typically show less dominance and aggression. This makes them more pleasant and safer to live with while also reducing the risk of fights with other pets. Dogs and cats that are spayed or neutered are also less likely to roam away from home, where they can become hurt or lost. Thanks to health and behavioral benefits that spaying and neutering provide, pets generally live longer than those that never had one of these procedures. 

When to Have Pets Spayed or Neutered

Puppies that are in good health can be spayed or neutered when they are at least six months old, and the average timeframe is between six and nine months. Adult dogs can also be spayed or neutered, but keep in mind that the risk of post-surgical complications increases with age. 

Kittens can be spayed or neutered when they are at least five pounds or five months old. This helps prevent cats from spraying urine or becoming pregnant.
