Our Houston, TX, veterinarians recommend having your pet altered via spay or neuter surgery at the age of 6-8 months once they have completed their final round of vaccinations. We advocate for your pets having this surgery sooner rather than later, prior to females beginning their heat cycle and before males begin to develop aggressive behaviors.
Both spaying and neutering procedures have physical health and behavioral benefits, allowing your pet to live a longer and happier life. Some benefits of spaying and neutering are outlined below:
Spay & Neuter Procedures
All spay (ovariohysterectomy) and neuter (orchiectomy) procedures are performed under full anesthesia by a veterinarian. Our certified veterinary technicians will monitor your pet from the time they arrive at the hospital to the time they are discharged and go home with you.
Comprehensive post-operative instructions and pain management medications will be sent home with your pet after the procedure to help keep them comfortable during their recovery.
