Spaying or Neutering for Your Pet
While technically an elective procedure, we wholeheartedly recommend that all dogs and cats get spayed or neutered. As part of your pet’s health plan of routine preventive care, spaying or neutering your pet will have a long-lasting impact on their overall quality of life.
Ensuring a Long, Healthy Life through Spay or Neuter
When your pet is spayed or neutered early in life, they’re safe from adult diseases that affect their reproductive system, like breast, ovarian, uterine, testicular, or prostate cancer. It’s one of the many benefits of spaying or neutering, all with the goal of keeping your in optimal health for as long as possible.
Other Benefits of Spaying or Neutering
Don’t worry: Your sweet pet won’t go through a personality change when they’re spayed or neutered. However, a positive side effect of the procedure is that certain troublesome behaviors will be stopped or lessened, including:
- Less roaming for a mate, which lowers the risk of animal encounters and getting hit by cars when exploring
- Less vocalizations
- Less aggressive behavior, particularly in male dogs
- Less territory markings, particularly in male pets
- Less mounting of animals, furniture, or people
Not only this, but you’ll be helping keep animal populations under control by prevented unwanted pregnancies in stray pets. This will help shelters prevent crowding and it might help more pets find a forever home.
Spay or Neuter Recovery
Pets often heal and bounce back quickly from the procedure. For maximum healing, we recommend crate rest and monitoring for 5-7 days after the procedure. They might get rambunctious, but this type of monitoring will help your pet in the long run.

Love these guys! We rescued a sweet little 3-legged kitty (Captain Jack) from the shelter and took him for his first doctor visit here today, and the staff was just amazing. Everyone was so friendly and treated Captain Jack like royalty. Lancers Square is now our forever vet!
