It's a responsible choice that improves your pet’s health and quality of life

It’s up to you as a pet parent to make the right decisions regarding your pet’s health.

While no one loves the idea of scheduling surgery for their dog or cat, having your four-legged family member spayed or neutered is one of the best decisions you can make. These procedures prevent reproduction and offer a number of health benefits. They sometimes even put an end to certain problematic behaviors. At SimpleVet Pet Hospital, we perform pet spaying and neutering in Little Elm and recommend these procedures for most of our patients.

The Benefits of Spaying or Neutering Your Pet

Spaying a female pet eliminates heat cycles. This stops the bleeding, whimpering, and nervous behavior that typically occurs when an animal is in heat. Spaying also lowers the risk of mammary tumors and certain cancers. Neutering a male pet lowers the chances of certain types of cancer, too. It often decreases anxious and aggressive behavior. Both procedures tend to lessen or eliminate behavioral issues, like roaming, fighting, spraying, and howling. 

Having your pet spayed or neutered is a responsible choice that improves your pet’s health and quality of life. Doing so also helps reduce overpopulation. 

When Should I Spay or Neuter My Pet?

The best time to spay or neuter your pet may vary depending on several factors. However, puppies are usually neutered/spayed between the ages of six and nine months. In some cases, the procedure can be done at eight weeks. Kittens should be spayed/neutered when they are eight weeks to five months old. When you schedule an appointment, we’ll discuss what would be best for your precious pet. 

Is Spaying/Neutering Painful?

Spaying and neutering are surgical procedures, so there is always some degree of pain. We strive to make these surgeries as comfortable and pain-free as possible, though. Your pet will be asleep during the procedure and receive the pain medication they need following their surgery. Most pets recover within 10 to 14 days. During this time, you will need to monitor their incision and restrict activity. We will provide all the aftercare information you need to keep your pet comfortable as they heal. And we’re only a phone call away if you have concerns during their recovery.
