Did you know there are over 170 animal rescues in Canada, and according to their latest reports, they take in about 100,000 abandoned pets each year? As a pet parent, you can directly do your part to help by getting your pet spayed or neutered. Call us today to learn more about these procedures.
Why is it important to get my pet spayed/neutered?
These procedures prevent unwanted pregnancies, thus reducing pet overpopulation. Aside from helping ease the burden on overwhelmed animal shelters, these surgeries also provide health benefits for your pet. Spayed or neutered pets have a reduced/eliminated risk for certain types of cancers and infections. They also tend to live much longer and have better temperaments.
When should I get my pet spayed or neutered?
Generally speaking, pets can undergo these procedures as young as 6-months-old. Ideally, they should be performed before the patient enters their first “heat” or reaches adolescence. The procedures can also be safely performed on adult pets (and even senior pets). We will conduct tests beforehand to make sure they are fit for surgery.
