Canine and Feline Spay and Neuter

Carleton Veterinary Services recommends that you have your cat and dogs spayed or neutered if you’re not planning to breed them.

Pets are neutered or spayed to control population and unwanted births, to manage behavioral problems such as aggression and urine marking, as well as to significantly reduce the risk of certain diseases.

Did you know that every month millions of pets are euthanized in North America because the pets are unwanted?  Animal shelters are over-flowing.  In the United States, between six and eight million dogs and cats enter animal shelters each year. In Canada, the numbers are equally disturbing. According to Adopt an Animal Canada there are roughly three times as many dogs and cats born as people, with over 10,000 being born every hour. This is the reason animal shelters and humane societies have to put to death thousands of animals every year. By spaying or neutering, you can help solve this problem.

Our Vet Clinics usually perform a spay or neuter after your pet’s last vaccine and before their first heat cycle. The procedure requires full general anesthesia.
