Benefits of Neutering
The benefits of neutering your pet include avoidance of unwanted litters, decreased risks for certain kinds of cancers, prevention of serious health problems, and potentially improved behavioral concerns. Intact males are prone to benign prostatic hyperplasia and testicular cancer. Neuters are the most common veterinary procedures and are performed on a daily basis. Your veterinarian will be happy to discuss the benefits and risks to your pet.
When To Neuter
The best recommendation for when to neuter your pet is dependent on factors such as age, breed, species, and size when fully grown. Our veterinary team can help schedule your pet’s procedure for a time that works best for you and your pet.
Once we’ve chosen a day for your pet’s procedure, our team will handle the rest. Depending on your location, your pet’s neutering surgery may be performed in our mobile clinic or at one of our partnering hospitals. As always, feel free to ask your BetterVet veterinarian any questions you may have about the procedure.
