Spay and Neuter

How does spaying and neutering help my pet?

  • Enhances your pet's health and quality of life
  • The cost of licensing is considerably lower
  • You will do your part to prevent the birth of unwanted puppies and kittens
  • Decreases a pet's desire to roam and mark their territory

What is the best age to spay or neuter my pet?

  • Consult with your veterinarian about the most appropriate time to spay or neuter your pet.
  • Considerations are the breed, age and physical condition.
  • It is NOT best to wait until your female dog or cat has gone through its first heat cycle.

What is the pet overpopulation problem?

  • County animal shelters are overflowing with cats and dogs resulting in longer shelter stays, stress, illness, disease, lowered adoptability of pets and ongoing need for euthanasia.
