Spay and Neuter for Dogs and Cats in Greenwood
At Vista Hills Animal Hospital, we recommend that pets are spayed or neutered if they are pets not being used for breeding purposes. Dog and cat spaying and neutering helps to offset a variety of potential health problems, such as behavioral issues, testicular cancer, mammary cancer, uterine cancer, and ovarian cancer. We recommend that pets are spayed or neutered between 4 and 6 months of age, for optimal benefits to the pet.
Dog and Cat Spay and Neuter Surgeries are Safe
At Vista Hills Animal Hospital, we provide excellent offers for SAFE spays and neuters. We do not use expired or inferior products and we do use pain medications on all patients. An assistant or Registered Veterinary Technician is monitoring your pet throughout the entire process, ensuring that your pet is never left unattended. We also perform preoperative blood work to make sure each patient is healthy enough to have the surgery. We also use IV catheters and fluids to increase the safety. Our team truly cares for you and your pet throughout the entire process.
Additional Dog and Cat Surgery Safety Precautions
For additional safety, we also do not administer vaccines at the same time as any surgery. When patients are vaccinated at the time of surgery, it makes for a dangerous situation by taxing the immune system while the pet is trying to heal from surgery. It also means your pet is unvaccinated (takes about a week for the vaccine to work) at the time of surgery, which means they could catch a disease from the sick patient beside them at surgery. At Vista Hills Animal Hospital, we are dedicated to the safety and well-being of each and every one of our patients!
