Whether you have a kitten, puppy, or a recently adopted pet, it is essential to make sure he or she is spayed or neutered. Spaying or neutering your pet can help reduce the overpopulation of animals. It also prevents a variety of health issues in pets, including cancer. Our veterinarian can provide this safe and effective procedure to protect your pet's health and wellness. At All Friends Veterinary Hospital, a vet in East Islip, NY, can provide more information about the benefits of these procedures.

Spay and Neuter

Spay Procedures for Cats and Dogs

Spaying is a surgical procedure for pets that removes the ovaries, uterus, and fallopian tubes. After surgery, your pet will not be able to become pregnant. Veterinarians recommend spaying a pet before she goes into her first heat cycle. Spaying your pet can reduce your pet's risk of ovarian cancer and uterine cancer. It also prevents your pet from going into heat, which can be stressful for both cat and dog owners.

Neuter Procedures for Cats and Dogs

A neuter procedure is performed on male pets. During the surgery, the animal's testicles are removed. After the procedure, your pet will not be able to impregnate other animals. It is a good idea to have your pet neutered in the first six months of his life. Neutering your pet reduces his desire to fight other males, which prevents injury and infection. Neutering your pet also reduces aggression, eliminates roaming behavior, and prevents testicular cancer and prostate infections.

Spay and Neuter Procedures Are Safe

When your pet undergoes surgery, our veterinary team will provide IV fluids, pain medication, and other tools to ensure your pet's safety. Your pet is also monitored while under anesthesia to check its heart rate, blood pressure, and other vitals. After surgery, your pet will need to recover for up to two weeks. In addition, your pet will wear a collar to prevent injuries and possible infection.

Testimonial

  • "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."

  • "I had such a good experience when I brought in a feral cat family during a TNR mission that I returned a month later when I adopted two of the kittens. 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."
