Spay & Neuter Your Pets
One of the best things that you can do for your pet’s health, happiness, and longevity is to spay or neuter your pet. This is a routine surgical procedure that we perform often at Woodlake Animal Hospital.
Spaying or neutering your pet can be extremely beneficial:
- Female pets can live longer
- Male pets can experience a reduction in testicular cancer and prostate problems
- Female pets won’t go into heat
- Male pets can be better behaved and can be less prone to wandering
As well as the benefits of spaying and neutering mentioned above, pets who are spayed or neutered can help reduce the overpopulation of stray animals. Additionally, it will help you avoid the cost of caring for an unexpected litter of puppies or kittens. If you are not planning on breeding your pet, you should consider spaying or neutering them.
After Care & Recovery
An important part of the surgical process is recovery. While the surgery itself is important to help address your pet’s health, if your pet doesn’t recover properly, there can be new health consequences to address. Avoid these issues by helping your pet to recover correctly! Our veterinary team will help you make sure you have everything you have to help your pet get back on their paws.
Help your pet heal quickly and correctly with these tips:
- Make sure your pet has a quiet, comfortable space inside of your home so that they can get proper rest
- Keep an eye on your pet’s activity and avoid activities like running or jumping
- Avoid bathing your pet and keep the incision area dry
- Prevent your pet from licking or scratching at their incision
Each of these measures should help your pet recover safely and quickly. If you notice any redness, swelling, or discharge from the incision, please call our veterinary surgery team in Oklahoma City right away! This can be a sign of an infection.
