Our veterinary expertise spans a wide range of surgical procedures. Alongside our surgical services such as cancerous mass removal, ophthalmic surgery, orthopedic surgery, canine gastropexy, splenectomy, and gastrotomy and enterotomy for foreign body removal, we strongly advocate for spaying and neutering pets.

Benefits of Spaying and Neutering for Dogs and Cats

Spaying and neutering pets brings numerous benefits, including:

Health advantages

Spaying female dogs and cats helps prevent uterine infections and breast tumors, while neutering male pets reduces the risk of testicular cancer and prostate problems.

Behavioral improvements

Spaying and neutering can reduce roaming, aggression, and territorial marking behaviors, ensuring a happier and calmer companion.

Population control

By choosing to spay or neuter your pet, you actively contribute to controlling the pet population and reducing the burden on animal shelters.

Long-term cost savings

Spaying and neutering can help prevent costly reproductive organ diseases and certain types of cancers, saving you expenses and potential complications in the future.
