At visits with your new puppies and kittens we will discuss all of the benefits, including behavioral and health benefits, of spaying and neutering your pet.  We generally recommend these surgeries when your pet is around 6 months of age.  Our knowledgeable staff can answer any questions you have about the surgery and the recovery process.  Prior to surgery, we offer pre-anesthetic blood work that is done in the hospital with immediate results to check your pet’s organ function and clotting to make sure they will be safe under anesthesia.  During all of our surgeries, an experienced technician will be monitoring your pet’s heart rate, ECG, breathing, and blood pressure.  Your pet will receive fluids through a catheter to help keep their blood pressure stable and to maintain hydration.  We will keep in touch with you throughout the day to let you know how your pet’s blood work is prior to surgery, and how they are doing as they recover.  We also strive to keep our surgery prices reasonable, so you can have excellent care and monitoring of your pet, at an affordable price.
