What is Spay / Neuter???

It is the sterilization of animals so that they cannot make more kittens or puppies.  Females are "spayed" and males are "neutered".  It is a surgical procedure, performed by licensed veterinarians while the pet is asleep and free of pain.  Depending on your pet's age, size and health, he or she will stay at your veterinarian's office for a few hours or maybe over night. 

Depending upon the procedure, your pet may need stitches removed. Your veterinarian can fully explain his / her spay and neuter procedures to you. If you have a new puppy or kitten, don't wait! Pets can become parents sooner than you think. Early age spay/neuter is safe and effective, so talk with your veterinarian at your pet's first visit.
