Spaying or neutering your companion isn’t just good for the community, it’s also a great way to keep your pet healthy as they age. Our goal is to ensure that every pet gets a loving home. Spaying and neutering Fayetteville pets prevents difficult or life-threatening pregnancies, overcrowded shelters and pet overpopulation in our area. We offer affordable and safe procedures for dogs, cats and rabbits. We recommend spay and neutering dogs and cats at 6 months unless otherwise advised during your puppy/kitten wellness exam.
Common Myths About Spay & Neuter
We’ve found that many owners have heard a variety of myths and misconceptions when it comes to spaying or neutering their pet.
- I Should Wait Until Her First Heat
While we may suggest holding off on the procedure for certain health reasons, waiting until your pet is old enough to reproduce often leads to unplanned litters.
- It Will Change His Personality
While there may be small changes in your pet’s behavior, they’re generally for the better! Animals that are prone to wandering or marking their territory often calm down once they’ve been fixed. Some pets will become more affectionate, too!
- My Pet Will Gain Weight
As with any pet, a post-surgery animal will need to have a planned diet that’s right for them. Your pet will not be any more likely to gain weight with the proper diet than their unspayed or unneutered counterparts.
