Guiding You On Spay or Neuter Dog and Cat Surgery

 

When you first visit with an intact pet, we carefully discuss your decision to spay or neuter. If you choose to forego the procedure, know that unaltered pets often require more attention and care. We also recommend when you should spay or neuter according to your individual pet. Though many pets are ready for the surgery around six months old, we must take your pet’s species, breed, and lifestyle into account. If you have any questions about cat and dog neuter or spay, don’t hesitate to call us at (425) 482-6345. We look forward to helping you and furthering the health of your four-legged friend!
