Spay and Neutering Services for Pets

These procedures, which prevent your pet from reproducing and bearing their own offspring, is a must for all responsible pet owners. They are routine surgeries performed by veterinary teams like ours all over the world. As more and more pets are “fixed”, less pressure is placed on animal rescue groups who deal directly with overpopulation and unwanted breeding. Unsure if your adopted pet has been spayed/neutered? Do you want to learn more about our spay and neutering services? Simply call us at 403.452.2060 to start the conversation with our team of experts.

What is the difference between spays and neuters?

Spays are performed on female pets. The uterus and both ovaries are removed using a small incision with a scalpel. Neuters are the male version and involves the removal of the patient’s testicles.

How long does it take for pets to recover from spays and neuters?

It usually takes patients 2 to 3 days to regain their energy and appetite after their procedure. Recovery time increases the older your pet is when they get the surgery done. For example, dogs 6 years and above usually take about 1 week to fully recover.

What happens to pets after they are fixed?
Aside from preventing their ability to have their own kittens or puppies, these surgeries have other positive outcomes. Your pet will be less likely to develop infections, cancers and will generally be less susceptible to aggressive behaviours.
