Unless you plan to breed your dog, spaying or neutering is recommended. This is generally done at 5-6 months of age, but please consult with the veterinarian as to the appropriate age for your pet to have surgery. If you do plan to breed your dog, we can recommend screening tests and provide information on breeding and whelping.
Spaying or neutering is recommended for all cats, and will help prevent unwanted behaviors such as roaming, fighting, and spraying. This is generally done at 5 months of age.
Microchipping for identification is often done at the time of spay/neuter surgery.
