Spay and Neuter in Largo and Seminole

You know that spaying and neutering your pets keeps them from reproducing, but what if you want puppies and kittens someday? It’s not worth waiting for spay and neuter surgery for potential fuzzy dreams.

Spaying and neutering are good for your pet’s long-term health and for your wallet. Here’s everything you need to know about this surgical procedure from an animal hospital in Largo and Seminole.

When to Spay and Neuter in Largo and Seminole

With cats and dogs, the younger you can get them spayed/neutered, the better. Of course, you shouldn’t make this decision yourself. After a physical examination, your vet will decide if your pet is in good enough physical health for spaying/neutering. Age and breed are other considerations that come into play.

Reasons to Spay Your Pet or Neuter Your Pet

If you care about your pet’s long-term health, you should choose to spay your pet or neuter your pet. Not only can this surgery potentially stop certain sexual behaviors (such as aggression, humping, and urine spraying), but it can also save you money on huge vet bills. Spayed/neutered pets are less likely to get testicular cancer, prostatic hyperplasia, breast cancer, uterine infections, and more.

Lastly, you’re doing your part for the homeless pet population by not contributing to it any further.

Spay and Neuter Surgery: What to Expect

More than likely, your pet will receive an orchiectomy, commonly referred to be as being neutered, or an ovariohysterectomy commonly referred to as being spayed. By taking out the male testes and the female uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries, reproduction cannot occur. Some pet owners opt for smaller surgeries like ovariectomies, vasectomies, and hysterectomies. These prevent reproduction but do not change behavior as mentioned above.

During the surgery, pets are anesthetized. This procedure is often quick, simple, and fairly routine. If you can’t take your pet home the same night, you can often come and pick them up the next day. If your pet seems slower than usual, don’t worry too much. They just had surgery, so they’re going to need a lot of sleep, more than usual. To keep their incisions from bursting open, pets are not advised to engage in any rigorous activity.
