Spay and Neuter Your Pet at Our Pasadena MD Pet Hospital

Responsible pet owners know that the health of your furry friend is a top priority. Part of this responsibility is making sure you do your part to reduce pet overpopulation. It is important to help reduce the number of homeless dogs and cats so that more lives are saved and shelters are not filled with pets without loving homes. Many responsible pet owners choose to spay or neuter their pets to help lower the number of homeless animals in the Pasadena area. Our experienced veterinarian team can help you understand your spay and neuter options at our Pasadena MD Pet Hospital.

Why Spay and Neuter?

Sadly, each year literally millions of unwanted puppies, dogs, cats, and kittens are euthanized. You can do your part to make a difference by having your dog or cat spayed or neutered at our animal hospital in Pasadena MD. This common pet surgery helps not only prevent unwanted litters of animals, but it also protects against certain health issues and troublesome behavioral problems due to the mating instinct of animals. If you do not plan to breed your pet, it is a good idea to consider spay or neuter surgery for them.

  • Spay - The spay process involves removing the ovaries, fallopian tubes and/or uterus of a female dog or cat which eliminates heat cycles. This reduces many undesirable behaviors that can be a source of frustration to owners.
  • Neuter – The neuter process involves removing the testes from of a male dog or cat to help curb their breeding instinct. This tends to make them more content and happy to stay at home instead of instinctively searching for a mate and other unwanted male breeding behaviors.
     

When Should I Consider Spay or Neuter for my Pet?

Our veterinarian in Pasadena MD, Trevor W. Ashley, DVM, can advise you about the best time to spay or neuter your pet. Timeframes do vary based upon your pet’s age, breed, and health condition. Feel free to call our animal hospital in Pasadena MD to discuss any concerns you may have about pet surgery with our caring team.

As a general rule, it is typically best to have female dogs and cats spayed early to help protect them from some potential health problems later.  Female pets that are not spayed early on can suffer from breast cancer as well as painful uterine infections. Male pets that are not neutered run the risk of acquiring testicular cancer or experiencing issues with an enlarged prostate gland.

Although spaying and neutering are considered to be a major pet surgery, they are among the most common procedures performed on dogs and cats by veterinarians. Although any surgical procedure is a risk, these have relatively low complications and issues.
