Spaying for Dogs and Cats in Pepperell

Spaying is the term used to describe a surgical procedure called on ovariohysterectomy. During the procedure, we remove the uterus and ovaries to prevent a dog or cat from becoming pregnant. However, in addition to preventing unwanted litters and ensuring that your pet doesn’t contribute to the already-overwhelming homeless pet population, this routine procedure offers health and behavioral benefits. 

At Preventive Veterinary Medicine Clinic, we perform spaying and neutering in Pepperell, and we recommend this surgery for most of our patients.

The Benefits of Having Your Pet Spayed

Aside from the obvious benefit of preventing unplanned litters, spaying prevents heat cycles. As a result, spayed animals are less likely to try to escape or wander in pursuit of a mate. Spaying also tends to curb howling and yowling, and it prevents false pregnancies that can occur as a result of hormone fluctuations following a heat cycle.
Having your pet spayed prevents pyometra, a painful uterine infection that can be fatal if left untreated. Pets who are spayed before their first heat have a much lower risk of developing mammary cancer and tumors, and the risk of uterine and ovarian cancer is eliminated. Spayed females tend to live longer and are happier when no longer driven by an urge to reproduce.
