Spay and Neuter Procedures

Spayed and Neutered Pets live a healthier and longer life!

At Escanaba Veterinary Clinic, we believe in the importance of spaying/neutering puppies and kittens to provide them with a long and healthy life.

Spaying or neutering your dog or cat will reduce common problems such as:

  • A pyometra, or uterine infection, is a potentially life-threatening condition which can cost thousands of dollars to treat and most commonly involves spaying your pet while they are sick. Occurrence is 100% preventable if your pet is spayed.
  • Over one half of all mammary tumors are malignant and can spread to other areas of the body. Early spaying, prior to your pet beginning its heat cycles, significantly reduces the incidence of mammary tumor formation.
  • There are more puppies and kittens overpopulating shelters than there are people willing to provide them with love and care. Sadly, many are euthanized.
  • Testicular cancer can be eliminated and prostatitis, an infection causing malignant or benign swelling of the prostate, can be greatly reduced with early neutering.
  • Perineal Hernias are seen more commonly in intact male dogsA perineal hernia is a rupture in the pelvic floor, through which an organ may protrude into the region between the anus and the scrotum. This affects a dog’s ability to urinate and defecate and may be life-threatening if the bladder or intestine is involved.  Neutering greatly reduces this risk.

 

 

  • Perineal Adenomas are a common tumor that arises from the sebaceous glands surrounding the anus. It’s so common that it accounts for 80% of all tumors that occur in the perianal area.  Neutering greatly reduces this risk.
  •  
  • Unwanted behavioral problems such as dominance aggression, marking territory and wandering can be avoided with early spaying/neutering.
