Spaying & Neutering Pets Has Many Benefits
Spaying and neutering our pets comes with health benefits beyond preventing unwanted litters. On a large scale, spaying and neutering reduces the homeless pet population and makes it easier for needy pets to be adopted.
At East Holland Veterinary Clinic, our compassionate veterinary team performs spay and neuter surgery for cats, dogs, and rabbits to keep your pets happy and healthy.
The Benefits of Spay and Neuter Surgeries
One of the most significant benefits of spay and neuter surgeries is the reduced risk of reproductive-system-related diseases. Spaying or neutering your pet can reduce and eliminate the risk of the following conditions:
- Uterine and mammary cancer in females
- Testicular cancer in males
- Enlarged prostate in males
These procedures also come with decreased behavioral issues. Spaying eliminates the heat cycle and prevents crying for a mate, while neutering can reduce aggression and lower the chance of marking.
Spayed and neutered pets also share a stronger bond with their pet parents because of the reduced desire to mate.
Safe and Compassionate Care at East Holland Veterinary Clinic
While spaying and neutering are standard medical procedures for pets, they are still a stressful, frightening time for animals. At East Holland Veterinary Clinic, we take great strides to ensure that pets feel as safe and relaxed as possible during any procedure.
We will closely monitor your pet’s vital signs while they are under anesthesia and stay with them until they are back on their feet after surgery. Our team will also provide you with detailed post-operation instructions to ensure a quick recovery after they return home.
