Spaying or Neutering Your Pet

Spaying & neutering your pet

Animal Family Veterinary Care Center knows that spaying or neutering is a responsible choice that can benefit not only your pet, but you, and society as well. In this country, each year millions of cats and dogs are euthanized needlessly. Surgical sterilization is a common procedure that we perform on a routine basis.

Spaying or neutering your dog has these added health advantages:

The noise factor of a cat in heat cannot be denied. It can be loud and annoying to us all and being in heat is uncomfortable for her as well. Nevertheless, if all is quiet, don’t be fooled; a cat’s reproductive system can go into dormant phases.

Spaying your female cat can be done at the age of 4 months. This will ensure both population control and more quiet evenings for us all.

In addition, remember that neutering and spaying is just as important for many exotic pets as it is for dogs and cats.
