Pet Spaying & Neutering Services
Naperville Animal Hospital provides pet wellness care services for your dogs and cats including spaying and neutering. We offer preventative care plans to assist you with the financial costs of your pet’s wellness care. Puppy preventative care and kitten preventative care plans include exam and lab testing.
Spaying or Neutering Your Pet
We recommend spaying or neutering puppies and kittens when they are between 4 and 6 months of age to optimize the health benefits, avoid serious medical problems, and to control animal overpopulation. Spaying or neutering does not cause a change in your pet’s personality, guarding instincts, intelligence, playfulness, affection, or weight.
What to Expect at Your Pet’s Spay or Neuter Appointment
Drop off for spay and neuter appointments is between 7 am and 9 am. Your pet’s health, safety, and comfort are important to us. Spaying and neutering are surgical procedures requiring anesthesia. To promote the safety of your pet, before a veterinary surgical procedure we perform a complete physical exam and also recommend that your pet have pre-operative blood screening and an electrocardiogram (ECG). Our veterinary team will utilize the latest in surgical techniques and equipment to perform your pet’s spay or neuter service. Your pet is carefully monitored during the procedure and recovery.
Neutered pets are typically discharged the same day. Spayed pets require an overnight stay. A member of our veterinary team will discuss any post-operative care instructions. Any pet medications can be filled at our onsite pharmacy for your convenience.
Please contact us to schedule your pet’s spay or neuter appointment or to discuss any health issues your pet maybe experiencing.
We accept walk-ins during our Doctor's Hours to meet your busy lifestyle. If you’d prefer to make an appointment, we offer those too!
