Spay and neuter surgery help set your pet up for a long and healthy life. The operations remove your pet’s reproductive organs so they can no longer produce their own offspring. This reduces unwanted pregnancies and directly helps with the global pet overpopulation problem. Our experienced veterinarians, staff, and separate recovery areas for cats and dogs make the surgery as stress-free as possible for your pet. If you are wondering if your pet is the right age to be spayed or neutered or have questions or concerns, our vets are here to help! Call us at 403-615-8016 to find out more.
What are the health benefits of spay and neuter surgery?
Here are some of the ways spay and neuter surgery can help your pet live their best life:
- Reduced risk of breast cancer and other types of cancers
- Eliminated risk of Pyometra (potentially life-threatening urine infection)
- Eliminated risk of pregnancy complications
- Reduced risk of prostatic disease
- Behavioural improvements (less aggression, marking, roaming, etc.)
Can spay and/or neuter surgery be reversed?
No. These operations are permanent and irreversible. Once conducted, the patient will no longer have the ability to reproduce. Spaying removes the female’s ovaries, while neutering is the removal of the testes.
