Spay and Neuter Surgery

Spaying or Neutering Is Part of Best Care

Considering spaying or neutering your beloved pet? We’re here to tell you it’s a wise choice.

Spaying or neutering is one of the best decisions you can make for your fur baby. It helps prevent significant health issues, curb behavior problems, and reduce the population of unwanted animals.

A Longer, Healthier Life

Research consistently shows spayed or neutered pets tend to live longer, healthier lives. Scientific evidence supports that intact pets have shorter lifespans and are more vulnerable to certain cancers and serious injuries, like fights with other animals or accidents, due to their strong urge to roam for mating purposes.

Rest assured, spaying or neutering won’t alter your pet’s unique personality. Your furry friend will retain that one-of-a-kind character, playfulness, protective instincts, passion, and spirit. Let’s give your perfect pet the best chance at a long, healthy, happy life.

The Battle Against Cancer

A dog spay or cat spay significantly reduces the risk of uterine cancer and a painful, life-threatening bacterial infection known as pyometra.

Pyometra is serious, toxic, painful, and can only be treated with major emergency surgery. Spay surgery is essential to safeguard your female pet’s well-being.

For male pets, a dog neuter or cat neuter substantially lowers the risks of testicular and prostate cancer.

A Happier Home

Spayed and neutered pets are much less prone to urine-marking, also known as spraying, which is smelly and destructive. Neutering actually solves 90% of urine-marking issues in male cats.

Spaying or neutering also helps curb aggression, excessive barking, mounting, and other dominance-related behaviors. It can minimize howling, tearing up the furniture, and the incessant urge to roam.

We recommend neutering your pet as young as safely possible, so troublesome behaviors never become an issue. The longer you wait, the greater the chance spaying or neutering won’t help at all.

A Win for the Pet Community

Here’s the harsh reality: Millions of animals end up in shelters each year, with only about half finding permanent homes. Many healthy, adoptable dogs and cats are euthanized annually. In 2018, North Carolina alone saw more than 23,000 shelter dogs and 47,000 shelter cats euthanized.

The solution to this heart-wrenching situation is preventing overpopulation through spay and neuter surgeries. These procedures are crucial in reducing the surplus of unwanted animals. By advocating for responsible pet ownership, we make a positive impact and ensure a brighter future for animals, sparing them unnecessary suffering.
