If you have a cat or dog, and they are not spayed or neutered as of yet, getting the process conducted is an important part of their care. Contact Animal Emergency Centre in Studio City to make an appointment with our veterinarian to discuss the Spay & Neuter process and to have the procedure conducted for your pet. Here is some information about spaying or neutering your pet.
Removing the reproductive organs in a cat or dog is conducted to help them from becoming pregnant or impregnating another cat or dog. Spaying is the term used for surgically removing the ovaries in a female animal. Neutering is the removal of the testicles of a male pet. Spay & Neuter surgeries are conducted by our veterinarian.
It is extremely important to spay or neuter a cat or dog if you have no intention of breeding your pet. This helps to keep unwanted kittens and puppies from being born, helping to avoid the contribution to an overwhelming population of strays present in our country. In addition, female cats and dogs have a lowered risk of reproductive ailments, including cancer of the reproductive system. Males will have a decreased chance of contracting a prostate problem.
Our veterinarian will conduct an evaluation of your pet to determine whether it is ready to be spayed or neutered. Puppies and kittens can be spayed or neutered at a relatively young age, however, it is best to have an assessment done first. Older pets will also have a pre-operation checkup done to ensure they are healthy enough for the procedure.
If you are interested in having your dog or cat spayed or neutered, give a call to Animal Emergency Centre in Studio City to make an appointment with our veterinarian. Reach out to us by calling (818) 760-3882 to inquire about appointment availability or to ask questions pertaining to the Spay & Neuter processes we use in our facility.
