Spay and Neuter Your Pets In Los Angeles at Hancock Park Veterinary Clinic

Spaying and neutering your pet can help reduce your pet's risk of illnesses and diseases while also helping to control the pet population in your community. At Hancock Park Veterinary Clinic, we encourage all pet owners who do not plan to breed their pets to consider spaying or neutering. Knowing the benefits of spay and neuter in Los Angeles and how the procedure can affect your pet can help you decide whether or not spaying or neutering is right for your pet.

What Is Spaying and Neutering

Spaying and neutering is the process of sterilizing a pet to render him or her unable to procreate. For female pets, spaying involves the removal of the uterus and ovaries. For male pets, neutering involves the removal of the testicles. Both procedures are very common and thus are considered safe for nearly all pets.

At Hancock Park Veterinary Clinic, our veterinarians perform these procedures for pets in the community. With state of the art equipment and years of experience treating pets, your pet's vet in Hancock Park can help ensure that your pet is safe throughout the surgery and that recovery is swift.

Benefits of Spay and Neuter in Los Angeles

There are many benefits of spaying and neutering your pets!

  • Reduce your pet's risk of illnesses. Spaying and neutering your pet at a young age can help reduce your pet's risk of certain diseases that affect the reproductive system. Older pets who are spayed or neutered do not get this benefit.
  • Behavioral benefits. Spaying or neutering your pet can prevent him or her from yowling, spraying urine, running away from home and engaging in other undesirable behaviors.
  • Reduce strain on local shelters. By preventing unwanted pet pregnancies, spaying and neutering your pet can help control the pet population in your community. This reduces the strain on your local animal shelters.

Overall, spaying or neutering your pet can help extend your pet's lifespan and improve your pet's overall quality of life.

When to Spay and Neuter Your Pet

The best time to spay or neuter most pets is at around 8 weeks old. Spaying or neutering your pet at a young age enables him or her to take full advantage of the benefits of the procedure. Older pets can also be spayed or neutered, but doing this procedure when your pet is older may mean that your pet will not be at reduced risk for illnesses.
