When many pet owners think about spaying or neutering their pets, they most often think about helping to control the pet population, but that’s not the only benefit. Spaying and neutering your pets helps prevent certain types of cancers and infections and eliminates the desire to find a mate, which may result in better overall behavior. Here at Callfield Animal Clinic, serving Witchita Falls, Iowa Park, Burkburnett, and Holliday, we offer spay and neuter surgeries for dogs and cats so that they can live long, healthy lives.
Male pets that are sterilized by our Vet in Wichita Falls, TX are given some pain medication or a small amount of anesthesia in order to help your pet relax and provide pain control during and after the surgery. Your pet’s vitals are monitored throughout the procedure and afterward.
Then, our vet makes a small incision in the testicles and removes the testes. This completely prevents your pet from reproducing. The entire surgery usually only takes a few minutes, but the exact length of time depends on the size and breed of your pet.
Spay surgeries for cats and dogs with our veterinarian take slightly longer, usually 30 minutes to an hour and a half, depending on the size and breed of your pet and where she is at in her reproductive cycle. Your female pet is given anesthesia and her vitals are monitored throughout the surgery and afterward. The incisions typically take about two weeks to heal, and our veterinarian will provide you with aftercare instructions.
To schedule your pet’s spay or neuter surgery and to get your spay and neuter questions answered, call us at 940-692-7000.
