Spaying is the surgical procedure performed on female dogs and cats to remove the ovaries and uterus so they’re not able to have puppies or kittens.

There are many benefits to spaying your female companion.

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

Second, spaying eliminates the sometimes messy heat cycles that attract male dogs or cats to your house from miles away.

Third, your pet will generally live a longer, happier life. Spaying helps prevent diseases such as pyometra (infection in the uterus) and mammary 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 female dog or cat spayed.

Spaying involves surgical removal of both ovaries and the uterus. 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.
