Spay & Neuter Services in Edmonton
At some point in your pet’s life, they may need a surgical procedure. In most cases, this comes in the form of standard neuter and spay procedures. This type of soft-tissue surgery not only helps in reducing the population of stray cats and dogs but is also helpful for your pet’s overall health and well-being.
Benefits of Spay & Neuter Surgery
For male pets, neutering helps to eliminate the potential risk of testicular cancer and also helps decrease the chance of problems with their prostate as they become older. They also tend to become less aggressive and are also less likely to mark their territory indoors and out.
For females, the menstruation process is halted and your can can no longer go into heat. Spaying your female pet also helps reduce the risk of reproductive organ problems, and also reduces the chance of breast cancer as well.
What To Expect
In the best interests of your pet, we require a physical examination appointment with one of our doctors prior to scheduling procedures. Before the procedure is scheduled, our staff will explain the process including:
- Any pre-surgical testing that is recommended – baseline laboratory testing is beneficial so that there are no surprises on surgery day. Knowing that your pet has normal blood test results can help prevent anesthetic complications or surgical complications such as excessive bleeding, which can occur when patients have low platelet counts or abnormal clotting. When there is liver or kidney disease, this may affect the choices of anesthetic drugs recommended by your veterinarian, to prevent anesthetic complications and promote a smooth anesthetic recovery.
- Food and water intake restrictions prior to surgery – a period of fasting may be necessary prior to your pet’s procedure. Our staff will let you know what is advised.
- What procedures are to be done on the day of surgery – from initial intake to sedation and general anesthesia, anesthesia monitoring, the procedure, and recovery, the staff will walk you through what will happen with your pet once you leave the hospital.
- Discharge and aftercare for your pet – in almost all cases, spay and neuter patients will go home the same day as the procedure. The veterinary team will advise you as to what is best for your pet, and also discuss aftercare for your companion and any rechecks needed.
