Spay and Neuter Surgery with our Canton, GA Veterinarians

Spay and neuter surgery Canton GA veterinarian

Most veterinarians strongly recommend getting your animal companion spayed or neutered, and our team at Acres Mill Veterinary Clinic advises it. Led by Canton, GA veterinarians Dr. Michael Good, Dr. Michele Stewart, and Dr. Dwight Alleyne, our vet team is proud to offer quality and affordable spay and neuter surgery among our many pet wellness services.

How Old Should My Dog Or Cat Be Before I Get It Spayed/Neutered?

Spaying (for female animals) and neutering (for male animals) is a safe, effective, preventative medical procedure that prevents your cat or dog from being able to produce offspring. According to new guidelines from the ASPCA, healthy kittens and puppies as young as 8-weeks-old can be spayed or neutered. Most veterinarians recommend dogs be spayed/neutered by the age of 9 months and kittens by the age of 5 months. Dogs can be spayed and neutered as adults, but the surgery in older pups tends to be a little bit more risky. It is important to ask your vet for specific recommendations for your animal companion.

The Benefits Of Spay and Neuter Services With Our Canton, GA Veterinarian

Our Canton GA veterinarian team wants you to know there are a lot more benefits to spay/neuter surgery than people realize:

  • Helps control pet overpopulation.
  • Prevents millions of unwanted animals from being sent to shelters and/or euthanized every year.
  • Prevents unwanted behaviors in your animal, including marking, roaming, and aggression.
  • Improves your pet's lifespan and helps your animal avoid health problems, including certain cancers (especially if your animal is spayed/neutered at a younger age).

When local pet owners come to our veterinary clinic for their animal's spay/neuter surgery, we do our very best to make the entire experience as calming and seamless as possible. With us, you can expect friendly and professional service, caring attention, and high quality surgical techniques and equipment to help make the surgery and post-operative period go smoothly.
