At what age should I have my pet spayed or neutered?

The doctors at Phenix Animal Hospital generally recommend spaying or neutering your pet between the ages of 5 to 6 months of age. While these procedures are common practice, please remember that a spay procedure in your pet is the same as a hysterectomy in a human woman and a neuter procedure is a complete removal of the male testes. Our doctors recommend pre-operative blood work, and pain medication for these surgical procedures. Call Phenix Animal Hospital to schedule your pet’s spay or neuter today!
