Humberwood Animal hospital offers safe and affordable spay/neuter services in Toronto. Our licensed veterinarians perform spay or neuter surgery while the pet is under anesthesia. Depending on your pet's age and health, he or she will stay at our animal clinic for a few hours or a few days. If you have a puppy or kitten, bring him or her for early age spay/neuter at our clinic.
Why Should I Spay or Neuter My Pet?
Peace of Mind: Neutered male dogs and cats focus their attention more on their human families, whereas unneutered males roam in search of a partner, risking injury in traffic and in fights with other animals. They mark territory by spraying urine on different surfaces. Indoors, male pets may embarrass you by humping furniture and human legs when stimulated. Many aggression and behavioral problems can be avoided by early neutering.
While female cycles differ greatly, most cats exhibit some unpleasant signs when in heat. They yowl and urinate more frequently in search for a male partner. Female dogs can attract males from far distances. Female dogs have a bloody discharge for about a week which can stain your furniture and carpet.
Healthy Life: Spaying a female pet (removal of the ovaries and uterus) or neutering a male pet (removal of the testicles) is a veterinary procedure that uses the same general anesthesia as used in human medicine. Both surgeries usually require minimal hospitalization. Neutering a male dog or cat by six months of age prevents prostate disease, testicular cancer and hernias. Spaying a female dog or cat helps prevent breast cancer and pyometra (a pus-filled uterus); having this performed before the first heat offers the maximum protection from these diseases. Treatment of pyometra requires hospitalization, antibiotics, and spaying. For elderly, ill animals, anesthesia and surgery is complicated and expensive.
Responsible Care: One dog or cat who gives babies and whose babies give more babies can be responsible for the birth of 100 to 200 puppies or kittens in one year. Almost everyone adores puppies and kittens but as these animals grow up, some people lose interest in them. As a result, millions of cats and dogs are euthanized annually or suffer as strays.
