Why You Should Spay or Neuter Your Pet
Spaying or neutering your pet reduces animal overpopulation, a crisis that occurs across our country. Overpopulation not only causes starvation and homelessness in animals, but it also depletes veterinary resources that could be provided for pets that are cared for.
Spaying or neutering your pet also provides health benefits. Spaying prevents uterine infections and tumors in almost half of all dogs and 90 percent of cats. If possible, try to schedule your female cat to get spayed before she goes into heat for the first time. Neutering male dogs prevents testicular cancer and prostate issues that arise as they get older.
If you have noticed that your male dog engages in strange or aggressive sexual behavior, neutering can often deter these behaviors such as urine marking and aggression toward other dogs.
Pet Vaccination Services
Pet vaccinations protect your animal from various diseases including rabies, distemper, parvovirus, infectious hepatitis, bordetella, feline leukemia, and others. Vaccinating your pets reduces the spread of infectious diseases and keeps your pet safe from infection. Vaccinating against diseases such as rabies and Leptospirosis provides protection for both your pet and you.
Young puppies and kittens should receive their physical examinations and first set of vaccinations at six to nine weeks of age. Additional exams and vaccinations are given every two to four weeks until they are twelve to sixteen weeks old. Thereafter, regular booster vaccinations should be given. During your pet's initial examinations you will also receive behavioral advice, nutritional counseling, and recommendations for disease prevention. This advice can go a long way toward preventing problems in your pet's adult life.
We offer comprehensive pet vaccine services for your dogs, cats, and other pets to shield them against life-threatening diseases. When you bring your pet to our clinic for vaccination for the first time, we conduct a thorough examination to determine if your pet is healthy enough to receive vaccinations. After the exam, we go over your options so we can choose the right vaccination for your dog, cat, or another animal.
