Spay & Neuter

Opting for spaying or neutering your pet can diminish the likelihood of illnesses and diseases, while simultaneously contributing to the control of the pet population in your community. At Hancock Park Veterinary Clinic, we advocate for all pet owners who don't intend to breed their pets to contemplate the option of spaying or neutering. Understanding the advantages of these procedures and their impact on your pet can assist you in making an informed decision about whether spaying or neutering is suitable for your furry companion.

What Is Spaying and Neutering

Spaying and neutering is the process of sterilizing a pet to render him or her unable to procreate. For female pets, spaying involves the removal of the uterus and ovaries. For male pets, neutering involves the removal of the testicles. Both procedures are very common and thus are considered safe for nearly all pets.

With state-of-the-art equipment and years of experience treating pets, your pet’s vet in Hancock Park can help ensure that your pet is safe throughout the surgery and that recovery is swift.

There are many benefits of spaying and neutering your pets!

  • Reduce your pet’s risk of illnesses: Spaying and neutering your pet at a young age can help reduce your pet’s risk of certain diseases that affect the reproductive system. Older pets who are spayed or neutered do not get this benefit.
  • Behavioral benefits: Spaying or neutering your pet can prevent him or her from yowling, spraying urine, running away from home and engaging in other undesirable behaviors.
  • Reduce strain on local shelters: By preventing unwanted pet pregnancies, spaying and neutering your pet can help control the pet population in your community. This reduces the strain on your local animal shelters.

Overall, spaying or neutering your pet can help extend your pet’s lifespan and improve your pet’s overall quality of life. Contact us today to learn more!
