Spay/Neuter Surgery

Since opening our doors in 2005, our surgical team has performed over 175,000 spay/neuter procedures.   

The Association of Shelter Veterinarians (ASV) has published guidelines and suggested protocols for spay/neuter procedures in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association.  The clinic follows the recommendations of the ASV and practices high quality medicine.

Our veterinary center is a member of the National Spay/Neuter Response Team and follows the Humane Alliance Model- nationally recognized for the quality of care and self-sufficiency of its clinics. 

Our team is also pleased to offer additional surgical procedures for your pet during his or her spay/neuter procedure such as umbilical hernia repair and hind dewclaw removal for dogs.

Spay/Neuter Surgery includes:

  • Pre-anesthetic physical examination
  • Individualized general anesthetic plan based on age, body type, breed
  • Vital sign monitoring by professional care team members
  • Pre- and post- operative pain medication to include systemic medication to ensure that our patients remain comfortable both during and after the procedure
  • After surgery each patient is kept warm with a heated blanket
  • Post-op clinic visit and exam if necessary


All healthy dogs and cats over the age of 8 weeks and at least 2 pounds are eligible for surgery. The recommended age for surgery is 16 weeks.  Early-age spay/neuter procedures have been endorsed by the Association of Shelter Veterinarians, the American Veterinary Medical Association, and the American Animal Hospital Association. 

Preanesthetic Blood Work   

Preanesthetic blood work for spay/neuter procedures is not required, but it is always recommended to ensure that your pet is a good candidate for anesthesia and surgery, especially for patients over the age of five years.  Preoperative blood work may be required for other surgical procedures.  

Preanesthetic blood work includes a complete blood count (CBC) and a chemistry profile.  Preanesthetic blood work can be competed the morning of surgery or during a preoperative visit prior to the surgery date.
