What Are Spaying & Neutering?
Spaying and neutering are veterinary surgical procedures that sterilize your pet and eliminate its ability to reproduce. Spaying is for female pets and removes the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and uterus. In comparison, neutering is the removal of your pet's testicles. Although there's no age limit for either procedure, dogs typically undergo the procedure between six and nine months, while cats can receive it between eight weeks and five months.
If you're undecided about whether spaying or neutering is right for your pet, our team is here to give you the information you need. We'll outline some of the benefits of spaying and neutering to help you make educated decisions about your cat's or dog's health. Benefits of our Greensboro spaying and neutering services include, but are not limited to:
- Increasing the lifespan of your pet
- Eliminating the risk of testicular or ovarian cancer
- Preventing undesirable behavior, like roaming and marking
- Helping reduce pet overpopulation
