Pet Spaying in Cockeysville, MD

Do your part to help prevent animal homelessness in your community by having your pet spayed or neutered. Padonia Veterinary Hospital provides affordable pet neutering and pet spaying in Cockeysville, MD, and the surrounding areas. This surgical procedure is completely safe for animals and humane since it reduces suffering for the entire population.

Furthermore, paying for a one-time surgery is far less costly than paying for the care of an entire litter. If you want to help stop the euthanization of strays, make a spay or neuter appointment as soon as possible. Fewer animals on the streets means happier pets all around. The medical professionals at our pet spaying and pet neutering clinic ensure your dog or cat is comfortable throughout the entire procedure.

Advantages of Dog Spaying and Cat Spaying

Spay your female pets to help them live longer lives. Dog spaying and cat spaying curbs uterine infection and breast tumors.

Preventing breast tumors is especially important since they are cancerous in about 50% of dogs and 90% of cats. For the highest level of protection, ensure your dog or cat is spayed before her first heat.

The other main benefit of dog spaying and cat spaying is that your pet will no longer go into heat. During breeding seasons, pets that have not been spayed typically go into heat every three weeks. This results in loud yowling and frequent urination in order to attract mates. If you do not want your dog or cat making a racket and dirtying your home, bring her in for a quick spaying procedure.

Benefits of Dog Neutering and Cat Neutering

Like spaying, neutering your male pets also promotes better health and longer lives. Dog neutering and cat neutering helps prevent testicular cancer and even some prostate issues. In addition, dogs and cats that have not been neutered are more likely to be hurt in traffic accidents and fights. This is because unneutered pets will go to great lengths to find a mate, escaping their homes in order to roam. Some pet owners also find that neutered pets are better behaved. They are less likely to mark their territory and mount other dogs, people, and objects. Dog neutering and cat neutering can also help ward off aggression problems if done early enough. 

When to Spay or Neuter

Keep your pets in good health by spaying and neutering them as soon as possible. Dog spaying and neutering are typically done at six to nine months depending on the breed, but it can be performed as early as eight weeks if the puppy is in good health. Cat spaying and neutering procedures are usually recommended before the cat reaches five months old and can be done as early as eight weeks.
