Spaying and Neutering

Puppies and kittens are adorable. The problem is, there are far too many of them out there and not enough owners. At New Hope Animal Hospital, we want to keep the number of animals in a shelter to a minimum. If you live in the Durham, NC, area, you can bring your pet in to be spayed or neutered by a vet on our team.

Spay and Neuter

What Is Spaying and Neutering?

When a veterinarian near you mentions spaying or neutering at an animal hospital, it means that the reproductive organs from both genders are removed. Without these organs, then the animals can't reproduce and the population of unwanted animals goes down a lot.

It's Not Only about the Kittens and Puppies

While it's sad that too many kittens and puppies wind up waiting in shelters for a home, there are other reasons dogs and cats need to be spayed or neutered. When they have their reproductive organs intact, they go into heat. This can make the animals very uncontrollable and they act out by doing things like spraying urine in all areas of your home.

What Happens with the Procedure?

You'll bring your cat or dog to our office where the staff will take them back to the operating room. Your pet will be put under anesthesia and undergo the procedure. He will be stitched up and have to wear a cone to keep him from licking his sutures.

What about the Recovery?

Keepyour pet in an area where he won't be too active. He may be a bit uncomfortable at first, but then he should be closer to his old selves soon. Once the recovery period and the stitches are out, he should be back to normal. If something happens, you can always give us a call and we can help make sure your pet is recovering well.
