Collierville Veterinarian: Spay and Neuter Benefits
There are many benefits to choosing to spay and neuter your pet. First of all, puppies or kittens are expensive to raise due to special food, medical care and more. If you don't want to keep the entire litter, you will need to spend time finding new homes.
The heat cycle poses challenges for pet owners, as your happy pets act out. Female pets yowl all day long in an attempt to attract males, who do everything possible to escape their homes to find romance. Getting your pet fixed eliminates these irritating behaviors. If you have multiple pets in your household, getting them spayed or neutered can help keep peace.
Spaying and neutering also protects your pet. Spaying a female pet reduces her risk of breast and uterine tumors. Neutering a male pet reduces his risk of perianal or testicular tumors. In comparison to the cost of raising a litter or surgery to remove tumors, spay and neuter is the affordable and practical option. So there is no reason not to see our veterinarian in Collierville!
Our Spay and Neuter Facilities - What to Expect
Our Collierville veterinarian has a state of the art surgical suite with all of the latest facilities. When you bring your pet in, we will do bloodwork so we can administer anesthesia correctly, then get your pet ready for the surgery that removes their ability to reproduce.
Our waiting room is clean and comfortable, so if you need to wait for any reason while you are at our animal clinic serving Piperton, Germantown and the surrounding communities, you can relax. Of course, you can drop off your pet and pick them up after the procedure.
Spay and Neuter Follow-Up Care
After the surgery we clean up the incision site, put your pet in the recovery area, and keep an eye on your puppy or kitty until they are awake and alert. When it's all over, we will call you and let you know so you can come and get your furry friend! We will send you home with days' worth of pain medication for pain control, and let you know any "warning signs" of infection. We recommend you keep a close eye on your friend for the days following the procedure. Licking or biting stitches can irritate the incision site and cause complications.
When you are ready to make your appointment with our veterinarian in Collierville for spay and neuter services, give us a call. We are happy to answer any other questions you may have about the procedure over the phone!
