Neutering your cat:

Neutering is very beneficial to the health of the cat, especially if performed at an early age. We recommend neutering at 4-5 months of age.

Advantages of neutering your cat are:

  • Prevent overpopulation
  • Prevents spraying & wandering away
  • Prevent unwanted cat fight wounds which can increase exposure to life threatening diseases such as FIV (feline immunosuppressive virus) and FELV ( Feline Leukemia Virus).

Spaying your female cat

 We recommend spaying your cat at the weight of 3-5lbs or before 5 months of age when a female cat is most likely to have their first heat cycle.  Heat cycles will continue every 3 weeks until the cat is spayed or bred.

Advantages to spaying your cat include:

  • There will be no more heat periods.
  • there will be no unwanted kittens
  • the uterine infections common to older cats rarely occur.
  • There is less chance of mammary gland cancer.

Spaying your cat will not make it fat and lazy. Weight can be controlled with proper feeding and exercise. It will also NOT change your cats personality.

Neutering your dog

Advantages include:

  • Reduces risk of prostate cancer and prostitis
  • Eliminates risk of testicular cancer, the second most common cancer in intact dogs.
  • Removal of sexual urges, which usually decreases roaming behaviors.

Neutering doesn't cause a change in personality, gaurding instincts, intelligence, playfulness and affection.
Also, hunting dogs will hunt just as well as unaltered male dogs.

We recommend having your dog neutered between 4-5 months of age.

Why should you have your dog spayed?

            The benefits to your pet's health and to help reduce the overpopulation are just a few of the reasons you choose to spay your dog. Here are a few more advantages to spaying your dog:

  • When in "heat", the female experiences an urge to escape in order to find a mate.
  • Prevention of uterine infection known as pyometra.
  • The prevention of breast cancer. Dogs spayed before the first "heat" have less than 0.5% chance of developing breast cancer.
  • Elimination of the risk of uterine and ovarian cancer.
  • We recommend spaying before 4-5months of age.
