Pet Spay and neuter

Spay and neuter surgery is a very common procedure done on young pets and for good reason. The surgery offers many benefits to your pet’s long-term health and helps reduces unwanted or unplanned litters. Typically dogs are neutered around six to nine months of age. If you have an adult dog, they can still be neutered. Kittens can be spayed or neutered as young as six months old. Our experienced veterinarians will work with you to determine the best time to spay your pet based on their age, weight, and health history. We understand that every pet is different, and we will tailor our services to meet your individual needs. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
