Our Veterinarian Offer Spay And Neuter For Pets In Louisville
We at Doerr Animal Clinic in Louisville, KY, strongly recommend that you consider spaying or neutering your furry pet. Our veterinarian understands how important these procedures are, and we want your animal to remain as healthy as possible for the long-term.
What Are Spay and Neuter?
Spay and neuter are surgical procedures that prevent pets from having litters. A female animal undergoes spaying, which is the removal of the reproductive organs so that she can’t get pregnant. Male pets are neutered, which involves removing the testes. Both are considered minor procedures, and pets can return home on the same day.
Benefits of Spay and Neuter
Spaying or neutering your pet offers both physical and behavioral benefits, such as:
- Lessening the chances of certain types of cancer
- Elimination of unwanted pregnancies
- Lessens a pet’s tendency to roam from home
- Eliminates marking behavior in males
- Increases the overall health of your pet
When Should You Have Your Pet Spayed or Neutered?
The earlier your pet undergoes spay and neuter, the better for it is for your animal’s health. For cats, kittens as young as eight weeks old can have the procedure. For dogs, the average age is between six and nine months, after they have fully grown. Older pets can also have a spay or neuter procedure, but there are more chances of complications if you wait until then.
