We recommend spaying and neutering pets after they are
6 MONTHS OLD
depending on breed and physical condition. While both spaying and neutering are major surgeries, they are also the most common surgeries performed on dogs and cats at Arrowhead Animal Hospital, P.C. Your pet is given a thorough pre-op physical examination and the safest anesthesia and pain management available.
After doing an exam on your pet, the doctor will present you with an estimate that goes over all the costs for the procedure. At that time, we are happy to schedule this for you. Spaying and neutering your pets come with a myriad of health and behavioral benefits that allow them to live longer, happier lives. Some of the benefits of spaying and neutering your pets include:
Here at Arrowhead, we encourage all pet parents to spay and neuter their canine and feline friends. In addition to helping control Westminsters’ pet population, spaying ( i.e., overiohysterectomy)(i.e., orchiectomy) your pet comes along with a host of health benefits. If it is time to spay or neuter your pet, we offer the best care and equipment for a swift procedure and recovery.
All procedures are performed under anesthesia with our certified veterinary technicians monitoring your pet from the time they arrive at our hospital to the time they go home with you. Pain management medications are included and are used to keep your pet comfortable during their stay and when they are recovering at home.
Laparoscopic Spays: Our laparoscopic equipment is a system made by BioVision which allows us to use only a single port for Ovariohysterectomies or Ovariectomies. A very small 3/8 inch incision is all that is needed and your dog will be 65% less painful than had she been spayed with the traditional technique. Laparoscopic procedures are safer because the surgeon can completely visualize the entire abdominal cavity and can watch for any bleeding from the surgical site.
