With Germantown Vet, you can be assured that your pet will be in a safe environment and treated with care post-procedure.
Importance of Pet Spaying & Neutering
There’s an undeniable overpopulation of dogs and cats—pet spaying and neutering ensures your pet will not contribute to this overabundance. Remember that at Germantown Vet, our gentle hands and conscientious staff make the procedure effective with minimal complications.
Health Benefits of Spaying & Neutering
Both male and female pets benefit from spaying and neutering, leading to a happier and healthier life:
- No constant crying or pacing – Female cats often call out for a mate or pace when they are in heat. Spaying eliminates this behavior. In female dogs, spaying also alleviates the mess associated with heat cycles.
- Lower risk of cancer – If you spay your female pet before she reaches sexual maturity, you’ll significantly reduce the chance of breast cancer. You’ll also completely eliminate the chance for uterine infections or uterine cancer. For male cats and dogs, neutering prevents testicular cancer and prevents most prostate problems.
- Improved behavior and temperament – While pet spaying and neutering doesn’t affect your pet’s personality, it can lead to a calmer and mellower cat or dog. Your pet won’t feel the constant urge to mate or exhibit as much aggressive behavior, and your male cat or dog will be less likely to urinate in the house and less likely to wander.
