For the total health of our furry patients, we offer a wide range of well, sick, and surgical services. From routine vaccines and routine surgical procedures like spaying and neutering -to- more complex and emergency surgeries, we are here to provide you with only the highest quality veterinary medicine for all your pet’s medical needs.
Many pet owners dread going to the veterinary office, especially when surgery is involved. There is a lot of stress, anxiety, and trepidation for fear that the personnel won’t care for the pet well enough, take the appropriate precautions during the pet surgery, or monitor the pet closely enough after the surgery.
Let Us Address Your Pet Surgery Concerns
The above are natural concerns, and our goal is to thoroughly address any concerns and questions you might have so that you can feel confident your pet is in good hands for his/her surgical procedure and completely understand how our surgical services can benefit your pet’s health and well-being. Of course, there are a lot of myths out there that only make pet owners even more apprehensive about pet surgery. This is particularly true about the common spay and neuter procedures; here are two we can debunk for you right now:
Myth: My cat or dog is too young to get spayed or neutered.
Fact: At Cole Animal Clinic, we recommend dogs and cats be sterilized around 5-6 months of age. This young age is not only safe, but actually helps the pet to avoid ever starting bad habits like marking territory with urine and avoid unexpected pregnancy in females reaching early puberty. Most experts recommend scheduling the surgery prior to dog or cat reaching puberty, usually around four to six months of age.
Myth: Spaying and neutering does not have any health benefits.
Fact: Spayed female puppies and kittens aren’t as apt to suffer breast cancer and uterine infections. Ovarian and uterine tumors will also not be a possibility. Neutered male puppies and kittens aren’t as apt to develop prostate enlargement and perianal adenomas. Testicular cancer will also not be a possibility.
