At what age can I have my pet spayed or neutered? 

Many breeds can be spayed at the traditional 6-9 months of age, however several new breed based studies found significantly increases in rates of long term health concerns such as cancer and bone and joint disorders of some breeds based both on their sex and the age they were spayed/neutered at. To discuss this further and determine what is best for your pet please schedule a consultation with your veterinarian.


What is the pre-anesthetic blood screening?

This is a blood test that is run here in the clinic prior to surgery. It tests the organ functions, blood counts and clotting function of your pet. The pre-anesthetic blood screening is done to assure safety during surgery and the ability to heal following surgery.


How long do the sutures stay in after my pet's surgery?

Procedures involving sutures require them to be removed in 14 days following the surgery.


Is it a good idea to let my pet have at least one litter?

No, there is no advantage to letting your pet have one litter. However there are plenty of advantages to having you pet spayed or neutered. These advantages include decreasing the chances of breast tumors later in life, decreasing the chance of cystic ovaries and uterine infections later in life, decreasing the desire to roam the neighborhood, decreasing the incidence of prostate cancer later in life, helping prevent spraying and marking, and also decreases the surplus of unwanted puppies and kittens.
