Spaying, also known as an ovariohysterectomy, is a common surgical procedure performed on female cats and dogs that removes the uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes, rendering the animal incapable of reproduction. We can discuss what age is best for spaying your pet based on current research.

Benefits of spaying your pet include:

  • Prevents unwanted pregnancies
  • Eliminates the risk of ovarian and uterine tumors
  • Removes the possibility of uterine infections


Neutering, or castrating, removes the testicles of male animals, making them unable to impregnate females. We can discuss what age is best for spaying your pet based on current research.

Benefits of neutering your pet include:

  • Helps to calm the animal and reduce sometimes aggressive behavior
  • Reduces roaming and spraying (territory marking)
  • Eliminates the risk of testicular and prostate tumors
