Read on to learn more about spay and neuter procedures.

Spay and Neuter Procedures

Spaying is done on female animals. It involves removing the ovaries, uterus, and fallopian tubes. This procedure, like neutering, is done under general anesthesia.

Neutering is done on male animals. It involves removing the testicles. This procedure is quicker and simpler than spaying, but it is still done under general anesthesia.  

Health Benefits

Spaying and neutering offer health benefits to the animals who have received these procedures. Both procedures eliminate the risk of your pet developing cancer in its reproductive organs. This greatly decreases its overall risk of developing cancer.

Also, female pets will not have to go through pregnancy. This process can be difficult and even dangerous for an animal.  

Behavioral Benefits

Spaying and neutering can also provide you with a better-behaved pet. This benefit is especially important in male animals. Male dogs and cats that have not been neutered can be very aggressive and territorial. Neutering them will greatly decrease this behavior.

Spaying a female pet will also help them behave better. Female pets that have not been spayed can be erratic and unpredictable when they are in heat. These pets can even get aggressive. As a pet that has been spayed will not go into heat, this difficult behavior will be completely eliminated.

  • "I can not say enough about these wonderful people. Dr. Reda is the most compassionate veterinarian I have ever met. My beloved dog passed from cancer, but they were there every step of the way with any questions or concerns, even when they were oh vacation and I was totally distraught about it, they made sure to address my concerns and never made me feel like I was crazy. There should be more people like Dr. Reda and his staff in this business. I am forever grateful for all of you."

Dr. Reda is simply a wonderful veterinarian. I appreciate his well-informed, holistic approach to treatment. He & his staff take the time to give me plenty of information and answer all my questions, while doing everything they can to minimize any distress and discomfort my cats experienced during the visit. In short, if you are looking for a vet that is highly knowledgeable, accessible, and compassionate, I cannot recommend All Friends highly enough."
