Spay and Neuter
At Kildaire Animal Medical Center we are committed to the promotion of animal health, both from the perspective of an individual pet as well as the pet population as a whole. Fortunately, spaying or neutering your pet provides benefits from both perspectives!
Spaying and neutering is safe and healthy for your pet. A “spay” refers to the technique of surgically sterilizing a female pet, while “neuter” refers to the same process in a male. Surgical sterilization saves lives in a number of ways. The primary way, of course, is by decreasing the euthanasia of unwanted puppies and kittens. The procedure also improves the life of your pet. The advantages to you and your pet include the following -
For spayed females:
No risk of pregnancy
No risk of uterine or ovarian cancer
No risk of pyometra, a serious uterine infection common in older females
Greatly reduced risk of mammary cancer if your pet is spayed at an early age
No need to suffer through the personality changes and discharge that occur during heat
For neutered males:
No risk of testicular cancer
No risk of age-related prostate enlargement that otherwise will occur in male dogs
Greatly decreased risk of being hit by car or getting lost while roaming after females (most dogs hit by cars are non-neutered males).
Because anesthesia is an area of concern for most pet owners, we examine your pet and its medical history to develop a specific anesthetic protocol. We use state-of-the-art equipment to monitor your pet under anesthesia, including its heart rate, breathing rate, ECG, oxygen saturation of the blood, carbon dioxide levels, blood pressure and temperature. We also have a warm air-filled blanket and warm intravenous fluid line to maintain body temperature and keep your pet comfortable
Pain control is taken very seriously. Your pet will be managed by appropriate therapies, including medications and laser therapy.
The decision to spay or neuter your pet is one of the best choices you can make for its long-term welfare. The only legitimate reason not to sterilize your pet is if he/she is a show animal used for breeding. A pet sterilized at a young age will be a healthier, happier, longer-lived pet!
