Pet Spay and Neuter

Celina Veterinary Hospital is committed to providing exceptional spay and neuter services for your beloved pets.

Pet Spay and Neuter

Prior to any surgeries or anesthesia, we perform a thorough physical exam and offer pre-anesthetic bloodwork. Once we have cleared them for surgery, we assemble their anesthetic protocol, and your pet receives:

  1. An IV catheter and fluid therapy. This helps keep your pet hydrated and maintains their blood pressure during surgery.
  2. A skilled technician monitors your pet from the moment they go under anesthesia until they are safely awake in recovery.
  3. Pain medication to help keep your pet as comfortable as possible both during and after surgery.

We understand that having a pet undergoing surgery can make many owners nervous. We will text you throughout the day to update you on the status of your pet. You are always welcome to text or call us at any time if you would like a quick update as well.

The Benefits of Spaying and Neutering Your Pet

Spaying and neutering offer numerous benefits for both pets and pet owners. These procedures not only help control pet overpopulation but also contribute to your pet’s long-term health and behavior.

Preventing Unwanted Litters

By spaying or neutering your pet, you can help reduce the number of homeless animals in your community. Unwanted litters contribute to pet overpopulation, leading to overcrowded shelters and euthanasia of healthy animals.

Health Benefits

Spaying and neutering can help prevent certain reproductive health issues in pets, such as uterine infections and testicular cancer. These procedures also reduce the risk of behavioral problems associated with mating behavior, such as roaming and aggression.

Improved Behavior

Neutered male dogs are less likely to engage in undesirable behaviors, such as marking territory and aggression towards other animals. Spayed female dogs will not experience heat cycles, eliminating the need to manage their behavior during this time.

When to Spay or Neuter Your Pet

It is recommended to spay or neuter your pet at an appropriate age to maximize the health benefits of these procedures. Most veterinarians recommend spaying or neutering your pet between the ages of six months to one year, depending on their breed and size.

However, our experienced veterinarians at Celina Veterinary Hospital will assess your pet’s individual needs and recommend the best timing for their spay or neuter surgery. We will work closely with you to ensure that your pet receives the care they need at the right time.
