Spaying & Neutering
One of the most important aspects of preventive health care is spaying or neutering your pet. There are many benefits to surgical sterilization including prevention of unwanted behaviors such as aggression, urine marking, humping, and accidental litters of puppies and kittens. We believe that accidental litters of puppies and kittens contribute to pet overpopulation and subsequent euthanasia in local shelters.
Intact pets are at an increased risk of diseases such as mammary cancer, testicular cancer, pyometra (a life-threatening infection of the uterus), and prostate enlargement.
The surgeons at Palm to Paws have performed thousands of spays and neuters. The techniques used allow for small incisions and quicker procedures, which results in faster healing time and less post-operative pain for your pet.
