Q. What are the benefits of spaying/neutering?


A. While surgery and anesthetic is always a risk, the health benefits are many.  For females you reduce the risk of breast cancer by nearly 400% and eliminate the risk of uterine infection.  Also for males, testicular cancer is reduced, and for many it reduces the urge to run, and mark territory.  It may also reduce aggressive tendencies.


Q.  Will my pet stay overnight after surgery?


A. Most dogs go home the same day, cats will stay overnight.  Your pet is monitored through the day and you may call later to arrange for a pick up time.


Q.  Will my pet get fat after being spayed or neutered?


A. It is important to monitor your pets diet, regardless of surgery.  Pets that have been spayed/neutered need  30% less calories than those unneutered animals.  Exercise and diet play an important role in weight control, as well as breed disposition.
