Spay and neuter helps prevent a number of unpleasant behaviors and potential health issues. Neutered males are less likely to engage in destructive and aggressive behaviors, nor are they as susceptible to testicular and prostate cancer. More importantly, spay and neuter reduces the number of unwanted pregnancies and uncared for animals.

Felton Veterinary Hospital recommends that all pet owners have their pets spayed and neutered as as soon as possible. This simple procedure eliminates unpleasant behavior, reduces the number of stray and unwanted pets, and promotes health and longevity.

Spay and neuter surgeries include the following:

  • Preanesthetic physical exam and any recommended blood work
  • Pre-surgery and post-surgery medication
  • IV fluids
  • Anesthesia
  • Continous monitoring by an experienced and attentive veterinary surgeon
  • Pre-surgery and post-surgery pain medication

Spayed and neutered pets tend to live longer, healthier lives while eliminating territorial and sexual aggression, inappropriate urination, spraying, and other undesirable behaviors. In addition, spayed and neutered pets reduce the number of unwanted and uncared for dogs and cats.
