Spay & Neuter Procedures

Spay & Neuter Procedures

If you own a dog or cat, sooner or later you’ll need to decide whether or not to have them spayed or neutered. Spay and neuter procedures help prevent unwanted pregnancies and litters. These surgeries also offer additional benefits for your pet and local community. At Mountainview Veterinary Hospital in Rockaway, we offer safe and effective spay/neuter surgeries. Here are some of the benefits you stand to gain by having these surgeries.

Health/Behavior  

Spay and neuter procedures can benefit your pet’s health by eliminating the risk of reproductive diseases. Spaying your female pet protects her against breast and uterine cancers. Neutering your male pet protects him against prostate cancer.

These surgeries also eliminate unfavorable behaviors during mating season. Felines are known to howl incessantly at night and mark their territory with urine, even if their “territory” is the inside of your home. Male dogs are known to run away from home in search of a mate. This increases their risk of getting injured in an accident. Neutering a male dog can also help curtail aggressive behavior.

By having these procedures done at our animal hospital, you enhance your pet’s health and wellbeing.

Bonding

Spay and neuter procedures can help you bond better with your pets as they’re not distracted with finding a mate.

Reduction of Pet Population

Spay/neuter surgeries ultimately reduce the pet population in animal shelters in your local community. Many shelters are overcrowded with unwanted pets, causing shelters to euthanize animals that aren’t adopted within a certain time frame. Spaying or neutering your dog or cat can reduce overpopulation of street animals as well, which does a service to your local community.
