Neutering

Neutering

Neutering is the surgical procedure performed on male dogs and cats to remove the testicles so they’re unable to father puppies or kittens.

There are many benefits to neutering your male companion.

First, you contribute to the prevention of the dog and cat overpopulation.

Second, neutering eliminates undesirable and often embarrassing behavior in your male companion.

Third, your pet will generally live a longer, happier life. Neutering helps prevent diseases such as prostate disease and testicular cancer.

At Mission Animal & Bird Hospital, we use several monitoring devices during your pet’s surgery. A trained veterinary technician continually assesses your pet’s vital signs during the procedure. Our monitoring devices and procedures allow us to respond quickly in the unlikely event of an anesthetic emergency.

Please call or visit our facility to learn more about having your male dog or cat neutered.

Neutering involves surgical removal of both testicles. It can be performed under a number of anesthetics and monitoring devices.

If you are shopping around for a competitive price on this procedure, be sure to question the type of anesthetic used and the monitoring equipment and procedures followed.
