Reproductive System Surgery

OVH
We recommend all dogs and cats be spayed before their third heat period in order to protect against mammary cancer in the future. In our hospital, we also perform a large number of more involved spays including pyometra surgery, spays of geriatric and overweight animals, and surgery for treatment of cancer of the female reproductive system.

Castration
We recommend neutering dogs before one year of age to minimize behavioral issues and avoid prostate disease down the road. Our veterinarians perform a large number of more involved castrations as well, including cryptorchid castrations and surgery for treatment of cancer of male reproductive system.
