When Should My Pet Be Spayed or Neutered?
The best time to spay or neuter your pet depends on their age, health, and breed. We recommend that some large breed dogs wait until they are closer to a year old before having surgery. This is because larger breeds need more time to finish growing, and their growth is influenced by their reproductive hormones. Cats and small breed dogs can usually have their surgery done sooner, but it’s important to work with your vet to decide on the appropriate surgery date, so your pet can benefit as much as possible! It is vital that you fully understand your pet’s treatment, and have the information you need to care for them after their surgery and help them return to a normal, active life.
