What You Should Know About Spay & Neuter Surgery

Spay & Neuter Surgery

At Animal Health Center of Land O' Lakes, we offer spay and neuter surgeries for cats and dogs. Our veterinarians know that pets do better when they're spayed or neutered. Here's what you need to know about these procedures.


When performed by a qualified veterinarian, spay and neuter surgeries are very safe. In fact, they are some of the most commonly performed surgeries in veterinary medicine. Our team takes every precaution to ensure your pet's safety and comfort during surgery and recovery.

Pet Overpopulation

Every year, too many cats and dogs are euthanized in shelters because they can’t be placed in loving homes. Spaying and neutering help reduce pet overpopulation and the number of animals euthanized each year. Plus, you won't have to deal with trying to re-home puppies or kittens.

Behavioral Problems

Pets who are spayed or neutered are less likely to roam, mark their territory, or become aggressive. Spaying female dogs and cats eliminates the problem of heat cycles. Your pet is also likely to get along better with other animals and even people.

Prevent Certain Health Problems

Spaying female pets before their first heat cycle can help prevent uterine infections and mammary cancer. Neutering male cats and dogs can help prevent testicular cancer. Additionally, both procedures can help reduce the risk of your pet roaming or fighting. As a result, your pet is less susceptible to injuries and certain diseases.
