WHAT ARE SPAYING AND NEUTERING?

Spaying is done on female pets while neutering is done on male pets. Pet owners often have a misconceived notion that spaying and neutering will only do harm to their pets when actually, there are advantages to having your pets spayed or neuter, which would benefit both you and your pet in the long run.

A neutered male pet has a lower risk of contracting testicular cancer, while spayed female pets have a lower risk of contracting breast cancer. It is a common disease among pets, especially those who were not neutered or spayed. Neutering and spaying is an excellent procedure to avoid such conditions. Spayed female pets tend to be healthier after the process. There is a common misconception that sterilized female pets have erratic behavior after spaying, but this is not true. There will not be issues of an unwanted litter of puppies or kittens. This is beneficial for both the pet and the pet owner, especially if the pet owner cannot take care of more animals. It saves everyone the pain of abandoning innocent animals.

Spay and Neuter San Antonio comprises a team of professional veterinarians who can spay or neuter your pets professionally. They have successfully done numerous spaying and neutering procedures for animals. Our expert Vet San Antonio can handle your pet and keep them safe and healthy.

WHAT WE CAN DO

Spay and Neuter San Antonio starts with ensuring that the pet is of the right age to be spayed or neutered. It is best to bring your pet in for spaying or neutering at a young age. For dogs, the period might differ depending on the dog’s size. Most commonly, pets are spayed or neutered before their first heat. It is pretty challenging to say if the pet is in heat, especially if it is your first time taking care of a pet. On average, most pets can be neutered or spayed around 6-12 months. Some do the procedure later at 9-18 months old.

It is easier to keep track of their health if their records are kept in the clinic, or if they have existing records that you can show to prove their age and to check how they are doing along with their medical checks and vaccines. This is a preventive measure to assess the pets’ medical conditions and to make sure that there will be no complications during and after the procedure.

Once all records are in and your pet is in the clear to undergo the procedure, they will be given anesthetics not to feel the pain of the surgery. Your pet would be asleep during the process, so rest assured that they are not feeling pain while being spayed or neutered. After the procedure, they would be a little bit groggy from the anesthesia but will return to their usual selves after an hour or two.

After the procedure, it is best to observe your pet. Check if there are changes in their behavior, eating habits, etc. If they seem to lose interest in eating, it is best to have them checked with the veterinarian immediately. It would also be helpful to watch over their surgical wound so it will not get infected. The veterinarian would also prescribe medicine to aid with the pain and the recovery from the surgery.
