Every year in the United States, there are about seven million homeless animals that end up in animal shelters. What's even more sad is that barely half of these animals are adopted. Tragically, the rest are put down, simply due to lack of people willing to adopt them. This heartwrenching problem begins because there are just too many animals that aren't spayed and neutered, which leads to animals consistently reproducing. Read on to learn all about the importance of spaying and neutering your pets, as well as how beneficial it can be for their long-term health.
Spaying and neutering are the same thing, except that spaying refers to female animals and neutering refers to male animals. Either way, there are countless benefits of choosing to spay or neuter your pet with your veterinarian in Los Angeles CA. Here are just a few:
If you're looking for spay and neuter in Los Angeles, look no further than your vet in Hancock Park -- right here at Hancock Park Veterinary Clinic. We do our best to make sure that our spay/neuter procedure is quick and relatively easy for both you and your pet.
To prepare for the procedure, most pets shouldn't be fed after midnight the night before (but this can vary based on the size and age of your pet). After the procedure is over, we'll give you step-by-step instructions about how to best take care of your furry friend. Typically, this involves giving him or her a quiet place to rest and recover. He or she should also use an Elizabethan collar so they can't lick the wound. Finally, be sure to check the incision regularly and ensure that your pet doesn't engage in much activity for a week or two after the procedure.
Having your pet spayed or neutered is a smart decision for your pet, for you and for the world. It's healthy for your pet, good for your peace of mind and great for ensuring that your pet doesn't contribute to the pet overpopulation problem.
