At Vegreville Veterinary Clinic, we offer reliable and safe procedures to offer less painful surgeries, including laser surgery. The procedure can be performed on pediatric or geriatric pets.
Benefits of spaying or neutering:
- Longevity and quality of life. Spaying helps prevent uterine infections and breast cancer. Spaying your pet before her first heat offers the best protection from these diseases. Neutering provides major health benefits such as prevention of prostatic hyerplasia.
- Prevents undesirable behavior if performed before the habitual behaviours have formed, such as roaming.
- It is highly cost-effective. Prevention is more cost efficient than cost of treatment of diseases that can may be prevented from spaying/neutering your pet.
- Population Control. Spaying and neutering helps reduce pet overpopulation. Every year, millions of cats and dogs of all ages and breeds are euthanized or suffer as strays. These high numbers are the result of unplanned litters that could have been prevented by spaying or neutering.
