What is Spaying and Neutering?

Spaying (for females) and neutering (for males) are surgical procedures that remove pets’ reproductive organs. Spaying involves removing the ovaries and uterus of female pets, while neutering involves removing the testicles of male pets. These procedures are typically performed when pets are young, around 6 months of age.

It is recommended that your pet be spayed or neutered at around 6 months of age before it reaches sexual maturity. However, the timing of the procedure can vary depending on your pet’s breed, size, and health status. Your veterinarian can provide guidance on the best time to spay or neuter your pet based on its individual needs.
