Reasons to Spay or Neuter Your Pet

Spay or Neuter Your Pet

Spaying or neutering a pet holds many benefits for the animal and its owner. Contact Casillas Veterinary Hospitals if you live in the Montebello, Lynwood, or East Los Angeles area to make an appointment with our veterinarian for a consultation for this surgery. Here are some reasons why spaying or neutering your pet is beneficial.

The Risk of Unwanted Animals Is Eliminated

A dog or cat that spayed or neutered can no longer be involved in reproducing offspring. This is the main reason why people seek veterinary assistance from an animal hospital to have the procedure conducted. Spaying is the term used for altering a female cat or dog. Neutering is the term used for altering a male cat or dog. The reproductive organs are removed from the pet in a surgical setting, stopping the pet from being able to become pregnant or impregnate another animal.

Behavioral Problems May Stop

A pet that has been altered may stop trying to stray away from the home in search of a mate. Many pet owners deal with the struggle of trying to keep an unaltered animal inside the home so that they do not reproduce. Pets often slow down, become more docile in nature, and lose aggressiveness after they're spayed or neutered. Unaltered pets that spray or eliminate in the home may stop this behavior as well.

The Process Is Relatively Safe

Your pet will need general anesthesia before their surgery. Our veterinarian will discuss the need for your pet to fast in the hours before the procedure is conducted. After the surgery, your pet will need to rest for several days as it heals from the surgery. Our veterinarian will also provide you with post-operative instructions to make this recovery time comfortable for your pet.

Contact Casillas Veterinary Hospitals, we are located in the Montebello, Lynwood, or East Los Angeles areas, if you need a veterinary appointment for spaying or neutering at our animal hospital. Call our veterinarian today at (323) 726-1525 to set up an appointment for a consultation.
