There are many benefits to spaying your male companion. First, you will contribute to the prevention of the dog and cat overpopulation. Second, neutering will help to eliminate territorial marking. Third, you will help prevent diseases in your pet such as testicular cancer. Neutering involves surgical removal of both testicles.
If you are shopping around for a competitive price on this procedure, be sure to question the type of anesthetic used and the monitoring equipment and procedures followed. We use several monitoring devices during your pet’s anesthetic. A veterinary technician continually assesses your pet’s vital signs during the procedure. Although the risk of an anesthetic death in a normal healthy pet is very rare, our monitoring devices and procedures allow us to respond to an anesthetic emergency faster. Faster responses can save lives.
Pre-anesthetic blood testing is strongly recommended but not required.
A complete blood count and serum chemistry prior to the procedure provides us with a better understanding of your pet’s overall health and anesthetic risk, and often allows your veterinarian to detect disease that would not be found during routine examination.
