Get your pet spayed or neutered!
When it comes to dogs and cats, 1+1=6. They don’t add, they multiply!
5 reasons to have your pet spayed or neutered:
- Lowers risk of many types of cancer
- Prevents pet overpopulation
- Reduces aggression
- Decreases roaming
- Reduces spraying or marking (maybe even stop completely)
Generally, healthy puppies and kittens can be spayed or neutered at 8 weeks old.
Schedule an appointment or call us at (614) 871-7705 with questions.
Pricing includes: Pre-anesthetic blood work, surgical procedure with intravenous fluids, inhalant anesthesia, EKG monitoring, pain medication, laser treatment to stimulate healing and decrease pain, toenail trim, and a dedicated technician (in addition to the veterinarian) throughout the procedure from start through recovery.
Remember: These costs are far less than having and caring for a litter!
What’s a LOVE spay?
A LOVE spay is short for a Laparoscopic OVE (ovariectomy). With this type of spay surgery, just 2-3 small incisions are made.
This results in less pain and a shorter recovery!
- 65% less pain than traditional spays. This also means a faster recovery and less trauma to our fur babies.
- Less risk of infection.
- Activity is only restricted for 2-3 days (vs 7-14 days)
Schedule your spay before May 31, we’ll upgrade you to this new procedure for free!
Common Spay and Neuter Myths
Spaying or neutering your pet will cause them to become overweight. Not true. Your pet will stay fit and trim with a healthy diet and exercise.
It will cause laziness or hyperactivity. Nope – spaying or neutering won’t cause your pet to be lazy or hyper!
Getting your pet spayed or neutered will reduce its instinct to protect your family and home. If your pet instinctively guarded, spaying or neutering won’t change that!
It will postpone or delay normal behavioral maturity. Kittens and puppies will continue their normal maturity after spaying or neutering.
Spaying or neutering will alter my pet’s personality. No, your pet won’t change a bit in personality after spaying or neutering.
How to help your dog or cat before and after your spay or neuter surgery
Before spay or neuter surgery
We’ll provide pre-surgical guides that you should follow. In general, avoid giving your cat any food after midnight the night before surgery. A puppy or kitten, however, needs adequate nutrition, and we may advise that food not be withheld.
After spay or neuter surgery
We’ll provide post-operative instructions for you to follow. Here are a few tips for a safe and comfortable recovery:
- Take any pain medication as we have prescribed.
- Provide your pet with a quiet place to recover indoors and away from other animals.
- Prevent your pet from running and jumping for up to two weeks following surgery, or as long as we recommend.
- Prevent your pet from licking the incision site, which may cause infection, by distracting your pet with treats or by using a recovery collar.
- Avoid bathing your pet for at least ten days after surgery.
- Check the incision site daily to confirm proper healing.
If you notice any redness, swelling, or discharge at the surgery site, or if the incision is open, please contact us. Also, call us if your pet is lethargic, has a decreased appetite, is vomiting, or has diarrhea or any other concerns following surgery.
