What Are Spaying & Neutering?

Spaying and neutering are terms used for the surgical sterilization of female and male pets. Spaying is the process of surgically removing your female pet’s uterus and ovaries. As a more complex procedure, it can take slightly longer than neutering to complete. Neutering, on the other hand, is the removal of your male pet’s testicles. As outpatient procedures, your pet can safely go home after their appointment.

Why Should I Spay or Neuter My Pet?

As pet owners, we want nothing more than for our pets to live healthy and comfortable lives. That’s why the idea of a pet undergoing any surgical procedure can be intimidating and leave you with more questions than answers. At Paws and Claws Medical Center, we’re committed to giving you the information you need about our Miami spaying and neutering offerings so that you confidently decide if they’re right for your beloved companion.

Some of the benefits of our spay and neuter offerings include:

  • Preventing unwanted litters and avoiding putting strain on animal adoption groups.
  • Curbing unwanted behaviors like mounting, roaming, and marking.
  • Stopping heat cycles in female pets.
  • Eliminating the risk of testicular and ovarian cancer.
  • Decreasing aggression in male pets.

Our Approach to Spaying & Neutering

At Paws and Claws Medical Center, our team adheres to strict safety standards before, during, and after your pet’s procedure. For example, our veterinarian will have to put your pet under anesthesia and our staff closely monitors their vital signs, including your pet’s blood pressure, heart rate, and oxygen levels. We also thoroughly sanitize our surgical facilities to help avoid contaminations during your pet’s surgery.

Although we don’t allow owners to be in the operating room, we want your pet to feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible. Even though your pet’s senses will be dulled because of the anesthesia, a member of our staff is always by their side to provide comfort. We’ll also be there for them as their anesthesia wears off so that they’re not completely overwhelmed by where they are and the people around them.

Most pets experience some pain and discomfort following their surgery. For many pets, especially prey animals, they’ll attempt to hide their pain. Our veterinary practice will provide you with detailed instructions on how to keep your pet comfortable and help them recover as quickly as possible.
