If you’ve recently brought home a kitten or puppy, you may have questions about his care. At Oak Grove Veterinary Hospital, we partner with pet owners in the San Jose, CA, area in caring for their furry friends. We offer routine, medical, and surgical care to pets of different ages and breeds, including spay & neuter pet surgery. Spaying or neutering your pet prevents pregnancies and litters. These procedures can also provide health benefits for your pet. Call us to get pet surgery from a “veterinarian near me.”
Spay/neuter surgery sterilizes your pet to prevent litters. Spaying your female dog or cat keeps her from getting pregnant. Neutering your male dog or cat keeps him from impregnating a female. If you don’t plan on breeding your pet, spay/neuter surgery can save you time and money in dealing with “surprise” litters. A San Jose veterinarian on our team can "fix" your pet at our local clinic.
Health & Behavioral Benefits
In addition to preventing litters, spay/neuter surgery offers health benefits for dogs and cats. Fixing your pet protects him or her from reproductive infections, tumors, and cancers that can shorten his or her lifespan. With less risk of developing these conditions, your pet could live a longer, healthier lifespan.
Spaying female pets eliminates the heat cycle which can take a toll on both you and your pet. Neutering your male dog reduces his urge to run away in search of a mate. Roaming dogs are at risk of getting hit by a car or getting hurt in a dog fight. Neutered dogs are also less aggressive due to having less testosterone in their system.
Fixing your pet reduces the number of puppies and kittens born into your local community. This can take a burden off of animal shelters that are already overcrowded with unwanted pets. It also reduces the number of stray animals on the streets. Your decision to spay or neuter your pet could be a great help to your local community.
