Protecting Your Pet’s Health with Responsible Pet Ownership

Our comprehensive spay and neuter services benefit pet parents, your furry friends,, and the community. Spaying and neutering our pets comes with health benefits beyond preventing unwanted litters. On a large scale, spaying and neutering reduces the homeless pet population and makes it easier for needy pets to be adopted.

At Fox Veterinary Hospital, our compassionate veterinary team is prepared to walk you through the process of spay and neuter surgeries, ensuring the process is comfortable for you and your furry friend.

How Spay and Neuter Surgeries Benefit Your Pet

One of the most significant benefits of spay and neuter surgeries is the reduced risk of diseases related to the reproductive system. Spaying or neutering your pet can reduce and eliminate the risk of the following conditions:

  • Uterine and mammary cancer in females
  • Testicular cancer in males
  • Enlarged prostate in males

These procedures can also decrease behavioral issues, such as:

  • Noisy heat cycles in females
  • Territorial urine marking and aggression in males
  • Impulse to roam in search of mates in both genders
  • Sexual frustration and mounting/humping in both genders

Spayed and neutered pets also tend to share a stronger bond with their pet parents because of the reduced desire to mate.
