5. At what age can I have my pet spayed or neutered?

   Spaying or neutering can be done at 4 to 6 months of age. Your pet is given an exam prior to surgery to help determine whether your pet is healthy enough to undergo the surgical procedure. Current vaccinations are required at the time of surgery. Also a pre-anesthetic blood screen is recommended prior to undergoing anesthesia and surgery.

6.  What is the pre-anesthetic blood screening?

   This is a blood test that is run here in the hospital prior to surgery. It tests the organ functions, blood counts and clotting function of your pet. The pre-anesthetic blood screening is done to assure safety during surgery and the ability to heal following surgery.

7. How long do the sutures stay in after my pet's surgery?

   Procedures involving skin sutures require them to be removed in 10 to 14 days following the surgery. Most of spay or neuter procedures are closed with dissolving sutures under the skin so no suture removal is required.

8.  Is it a good idea to let my pet have at least one litter?

    No, there are no medical or psychological advantages to letting your pet have one litter. There are, however, plenty of advantages to having you pet spayed or neutered before thay come into heat for the first time. The advantages in female pets include eliminating unwanted pregnancies, decreasing the chances of breast tumors, cystic ovaries, and uterine infections later in life. In males, neutering at an early age will decrease the desire to roam the neighborhood, decrease the incidence of prostate and testicular disease, and help prevent spraying and marking.
