Spaying refers to the surgical procedure performed on female dogs and cats to render them infertile. There are many benefits to spaying your female companion. First, you will contribute to the prevention of the dog and cat overpopulation. Second, spaying will eliminate the sometimes ‘messy’ heat cycles that attract male dogs to your house from miles away. Third, you will help prevent diseases in your pet such as pyometra (infection in the uterus) and mammary cancer. Spaying involves surgical removal of both ovaries and the uterus.
We use monitoring devices during surgery to continually assess your pet’s vital signs during the procedure. Although the risk of an anesthetic death in a normal, healthy pet is very rare, our monitoring devices and procedures allow us to respond to an anesthetic emergency quickly. Fast responses can save lives.
