Dog Spay & Neuter
Everhart Veterinary Hospital offers surgical procedures from orthopedics to spays and neuters. If you are unfamiliar with the terms spay (female) and neuter (male), they are surgical procedures that render dogs incapable of reproducing.
We have successfully spayed and neutered a countless number of dogs over the years. These operations have been performed on dogs of all breeds and ages. While there is no guarantee that spaying or neutering a dog won’t cause complications, they are both widely accepted as being safe procedures. The Animal Humane Society, the ASPCA, and the other main veterinary organizations deem them as being safe for your pet.
Why Spay/Neuter Your Dog
There are several justifiable reasons for spaying or neutering your dog. Every year, millions of dogs are euthanized at animal shelters because there are not enough adopters. Without these procedures, there would be even more dogs who would be receiving the same fate. Other benefits include:
- Sterilizing a dog increases its life expectancy
- Spaying prevent uterine infections and breast tumors
- Neutering prevents testicular cancer
What You Can Expect From Us
Many new puppy owners are resistant to the idea of putting their new friend under a surgical procedure. We want all dog owners to know that they can trust our professionals to care for your pet through the best means possible. When a puppy first walks through our doors, they will receive pain medicine before their procedure. When they are eventually put under anesthesia, our experts will monitor your puppy’s blood pressure, oxygenation, body temperature, and other vital signs throughout the entire procedure. After we have finished the operation, we will administer specific dosages of pain management medicines for your puppy until we are entirely confident they are ready to be taken home. Before you leave, our team will educate you, the owner, on postsurgical instructions to help them make the quickest and easiest recovery possible.
