Why should I spay or neuter my cat or dog?
- We recommend you spay or neuter your pet at 6 months of age
- Unspayed females are at a higher risk for mammary tumors and uterine infection (pyometra), a very critical and costly surgery.
- Female dogs and cats never completely stop going into heat, so there are potential problems of pregnancy at an advanced age.
- Unneutered males can develop behavior problems such as urinating in the house or spraying on the furniture; mounting people or objects; and aggressive tendencies making them less desirable companions.
- By spaying and neutering our pets, we can all help to reduce the overpopulation of dogs and cats.
Why should I have the surgery at Berkeley Heights Animal Hospital?
- We require pre-operative blood work prior to any surgery to be sure your pet is healthy enough for anesthesia.
- IV fluids are administered during the surgery to help sustain body temperature, fluid and electrolyte levels.
- Your pet is given a sedative and pain management medication prior to surgery to minimize anxiety and discomfort.
- A sterile surgical pack is used, just as in a human hospital, to minimize the risk of post surgical infection.
- We offer a choice of laser surgery.
- Your pet is on a heated surgery table to maintain their body temperature.
- Your pet is electronically monitored while under anesthesia to measure their heart rate and oxygen level within their body.
- A highly trained veterinary technician monitors your pet the entire time they are under anesthesia and until they are fully recovered.
- Your pet will recover in an ICU cage on a soft fleece blanket.
- Your pet receives a complimentary pedicure while under anesthesia and suture removal, if necessary, in 10 to 14 days.
