The Benefits

The benefits of spaying or neutering include:

  • Reduced risk of developing cancer.
  • Less likelihood of running off in search of a mate.
  • Lowered levels of aggression, leading to better odds of finding and keeping a home.
  • Reduced numbers of unwanted pets.
  • Reduced spraying/marking behaviors.
  • Prevention of going into heat, bleeding, and yowling.
  • Improved health and increased life span.

Our primary clinic at 3300 Falls Road is open to the general public. However, your pet must meet these requirements to be eligible for our spay/neuter service:

  • Cats must be between 8 weeks and 7 years old.
