Spay & Neuter Surgery
For the Well-Being of Your Pet and Your Community
Orange City Family Animal Care is dedicated to your pets’ well-being and our community’s betterment. One of the most impactful ways to achieve both is through our safe and effective spay and neuter surgeries. These procedures offer numerous health and community benefits, are simple and routine, and ensure a brighter future for our pets and neighborhoods.
A Healthier Community
Spaying (for females) and neutering (for males) are vital steps in preventing unwanted pregnancies and reducing the number of homeless animals in our communities. By controlling the pet population, we can help decrease the number of animals in shelters and on the streets.
Beyond the community benefits, spay and neuter surgeries have substantial health advantages for your pets. For females, a cat or dog spay eliminates the risk of uterine infections and reduces the risk of mammary gland tumors. For males, a cat or dog neuter minimizes the risk of testicular cancer and can decrease aggressive or territorial behaviors.
The Spay and Neuter Process
A cat or dog spay and neuter are routine surgical procedures performed in the office by our expert veterinarian, Dr. Laura Vander Stelt. The surgery typically involves removing the reproductive organs (uterus and ovaries in females, testes in males) while your pet is under general anesthesia. Our dog and cat spay and neuter surgeries are safe and effective and routinely performed by our exceptional surgical team.
We take the utmost care in ensuring your pet’s comfort and safety throughout the procedure. Before surgery, we conduct a thorough pre-operative examination and may recommend blood tests to assess your pet’s overall health. During the surgery, we monitor vital signs closely, and post-surgery, we provide pain management and monitoring to ensure a smooth recovery.
We are here to guide you through the entire process, from discussing the benefits of spaying and neutering to scheduling the surgery and providing post-operative care instructions. We understand that every pet is unique and tailor our approach to meet their needs.
