Pet Spay and Neuter
If you recently brought home a new puppy or kitten, you will need to plan for their spay or neuter surgery when they reach the appropriate age. Spaying and neutering benefits pets both as a preventative against infection and certain types of cancer, and as a deterrent to pet overpopulation. The overall goal of pet spay and neuter surgeries is to help as many pets as possible live longer, healthier lives. At Skipworth Veterinary Clinic in Richmond, we hold ourselves to the highest standards of care, and take every step to make spaying and neutering a safe and easy experience for all of our patients.
When to Spay or Neuter Your Pet
Your veterinarian can help you decide on the best time to have your pet spayed or neutered. As with any other surgical procedure, we prefer to exercise caution and make absolutely certain that your pet has undergone a comprehensive health evaluation and blood work to ensure they’re healthy.
