Spaying is an important procedure for young female pets! As your pet's veterinarian in Solomons MD, we offer spaying services for cats and dogs. Spaying is important for pets for a variety of reasons. As a pet owner, it's important for you to understand the benefits of spaying, so you can decide whether or not spaying is right for your pet.
There are many reasons to spay your pet in Solomons! Below are some of the most important reasons to spay your pet.
Many pets are spayed when they eight weeks old. However, it's never too late to get your pet spayed. Even fully grown adult pets can be spayed, provided that they are healthy. However, some of the benefits of spaying your pet, such as reduced risk for mammary gland tumors and ovarian cancer, are not applicable for pets who are spayed later in life. In order to take full advantage of the benefits of spaying your pet, it's important to get him or her spayed at a young age.
The spaying procedure involves removal of the uterus and both ovaries. This is done by making an incision along the body's midline. After the surgery, your pet will need to rest and get less exercise than usual. We recommend 10 days of rest post surgery.
At Solomons Veterinary Medical Center, we have state of the art surgical equipment that can help make your pet's spaying procedure safe and comfortable. In addition, our experienced vet has performed this spaying surgery many times with good results.
