Cat Neutering and Spaying Back
Pets can be spayed or neutered once they have reached approximately six months of age. These procedures require pet anesthesia and monitoring after the surgery. Each patient receives supportive care such as intravenous fluid therapy, warm blankets and medications for pain control while in the hospital by our animal loving veterinarians and registered veterinarian technicians. After the surgery, we ensure that you receive complete care instructions and post-operative pain medications by one of our registered veterinary technicians. We will happily answer all your queries before and after the surgery.
For female pets, a procedure which involves the removal of ovaries and the uterus, called the ovariohysterectomy is performed.

- No worry about going into estrus (also known as “heat”) and the inconvenience attached to the cycle

For male pets, the procedure involves removing the testicles.
