Is spay/neuter safe?

Posted on

As with any surgery, there is a risk that goes along with spaying/neutering, but we believe the benefits to your pet (spaying eliminates the risk of ovarian cancer and neutering removes the risk of testicular cancer) and the reduction of pet homelessness outweigh the risks. All spay/neuter surgeries are performed by our licensed veterinarians (DVMs) and the animals are monitored while they are under anesthesia. The animals are never left alone while under anesthesia.

While under anesthesia, every animal has a heart monitor on them so that any change in heart rhythm and/or speed can be detected immediately. After surgery, your pet will receive monitoring until he is moving his head and/or ready to walk, then he’ll be put in his kennel to rest and eat. Every patient receives pain medication. The spay/neuter surgery only takes between 5 to 20 minutes.
