Spaying or neutering (or sterilizing) your pet

is an important decision you will make as a pet owner.

Spaying is the removal of the reproductive organs of female dogs and cats, and neutering is the removal of the testicles of male dogs and cats. These procedures ensure your pet will not reproduce. For many reasons, we believe this is an essential procedure for the health and quality of life of dogs and cats. At PetNest Animal Hospital, we perform spay and neuter surgery for pets in Frisco, TX, and the surrounding areas, and we would be thrilled to have your furry family member as a patient.

Benefits of Spaying or Neutering

The benefits of having your pet spayed or neutered are numerous and include: 
  • Spaying eliminates heat cycles, which stops the bleeding, nervous behavior, and whimpering that usually occur when an animal is in heat. 
  • Spaying and neutering lower the chances of certain types of cancer. 
  • Decrease anxious or aggressive behavior to create a calmer and more affectionate pet. 
  • Procedures are minimally invasive, and most pets recover within a few days.

Why Should I Spay or Neuter My Pet?

Spaying or neutering benefits your pet, your family, and your community. According to the ASPCA, pets who have been spayed or neutered usually are less aggressive. Behaviors such as fighting, roaming, spraying, and crying will disappear, and most pets become even more affectionate. Additionally, spaying females animals helps to prevent breast cancer and eliminates uterine infections and cancer. Neutering your male pet reduces the chance of testicular cancer and prostate issues.

Just as importantly, spaying and neutering eliminate the risk of reproduction. While we all love puppies and kittens, the reality is that most animal shelters are at capacity, and every year, millions of unwanted dogs and cats, including puppies and kittens, are euthanized or die on the streets. By spaying or neutering, you are helping to reduce overpopulation.

When Should I Spay or Neuter My Pet?

We will work with you to determine the best time to spay or neuter your pet. According to the ASPCA, puppies are typically spayed or neutered between six and nine months, but the procedure can be done as young as eight weeks in some cases. Cats are typically spayed or neutered between eight weeks and five months old. Make an appointment with our team to discuss what’s best for your pet and your family.

Will Spay or Neuter Surgery and Recovery Be Painful for My Pet?

As with humans, animals do feel pain. When you choose us for your pet’s spay or neuter in Frisco, we will do everything possible to make the process as comfortable as possible. The surgery will be performed using anesthesia. Your pet will also receive pain medication as needed after surgery. Recovery takes about 10-14 days, during which time you’ll need to restrict activity and monitor their incision. Most pets feel great after a few days and recover easily. We will ensure you have all of the information you’ll need to care for your pet before you leave our office.
