Each year, millions of healthy dogs and cats must be euthanized because shelters are overpopulated. Homeless pets remain a significant problem throughout the United States, and many animal lovers have become frustrated with these statistics. Wintermere Pointe Animal Hospital provides spay and neuter surgery for pets in Clermont, Winter Garden, and Windermere, FL.
Spay & Neuter Surgical Procedures
When you bring your pet to our veterinarian for spay or neuter surgery, he or she will be placed under anesthesia, which will help them sleep through the entire process. Though the procedure is safe, your pet will be monitored carefully throughout the procedure.
If your pet is a female, the vet will remove the uterus and ovaries through an abdominal incision. Veterinary care will ensure the incision heals completely. For male pets, the veterinarian will make a small incision in the scrotum to remove the testicles and tie the vas deferens. After the surgery, veterinary care will ensure your pet recovers properly.
The Benefits of Spaying Your Pet
Spaying your female pet comes with many benefits. Your pet is more likely to live a long and healthy life when she is spayed. Additional benefits include:
- Avoid frequent heat cycles
- Avoid unwanted kittens or puppies
- Reduce vocalizations
- Reduce aggressive behaviors
- Reduce roaming
- Reduced risk of mammary, ovarian, or uterine cancer
Plus, you do not have to deal with medical bills associated with pregnancy and caring for your pet post-labor and delivery.
The Benefits of Neutering Your Pet
Your pet will likely live longer if he is neutered. In addition to living a longer life, your pet may also experience:
- Curb aggressive behavior
- Prevent roaming
- Prevent sexual behaviors
- Avoid indoor spraying or urinating
- Reduce testicular cancer risk
Male pets that are neutered may be easier to play with because they tend to get less aggressive. This means that these pets are much better members of the family than unaltered pets.
