Our veterinary team at Crossway Veterinary Housecalls has been providing high-quality spay & neuter procedures to the local pet community for years. Cats and dogs benefit from this common procedure, and so do you! Our mobile vet clinic can perform this common procedure on your pet.
How Spay and Neuter Procedures Work
Spay or neuter surgeries are procedures that render animals unable to produce offspring. Spaying is done on female cats and dogs and involves the removal of the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and uterus. Neutering is performed on male cats and dogs and involves the removal of the testes. Both procedures are available from our mobile veterinary service.
Why Spay & Neuter?
Getting your pet spayed or neutered comes with several benefits:
- It helps prevent the economic, social, and moral burden of pet overpopulation. Millions of unwanted cats and dogs are sent to shelters every year or become strays. Many will never find forever homes. By preventing your pet from being able to reproduce, you're helping to prevent this problem and improve the well-being of your local pet community.
- It may protect pets from certain health conditions (e.g. testicular cancer, prostate enlargement, breast cancer, and uterine infections).
- It may prevent unwanted reproductive behaviors like territorial marking, aggression, and menstruation.
As with all surgical procedures involved in veterinary care, there are some risks associated with spaying and neutering, including infection, bleeding, and an increased risk for certain types of health conditions. We encourage you to talk to our mobile veterinarian team if you have any questions or concerns. Overwhelmingly, most pet parents agree that the benefits of getting their animal spayed or neutered far outweigh the potential risks.
When to Spay & Neuter Pets
We recommend getting your puppy or kitten spayed or neutered before or around 6 months of age. If your pet is healthy, your animal may be safely spayed or neutered as young as 8-weeks-old.
What to Expect During My Pet's Spay or Neuter Appointment with a Mobile Vet Unit
When you schedule a spay or neuter procedure with our mobile veterinarian, we'll do a pre-operative consultation to answer your questions and educate you about how to care for your animal after the procedure.
A spay or neuter surgery is a relatively simple operation done through a few small abdominal incisions. For the pet’s comfort and for staff safety, animals are placed under general anesthesia during the procedure.
Following the surgery, we'll teach you about complications to look out for and how to keep the incisions dry and intact.
