Spay and Neuter Surgery at Glen Park Animal Hospitalspay & neuter glen park

As fond of puppies or kittens as you may be, that doesn't mean you want to live in a house jam-packed with them. Nor would you want to leave your pets vulnerable to serious diseases and other health threats simply to preserve their fertility. Spay and neuter surgery is the smart, responsible choice, not only for pregnancy prevention but also as a preventative health measure. Your pet can receive these simple yet critical procedures from our Gary veterinarian at Glen Park Animal Hospital, Dr. Marcus Larson.

Why You Should Spay or Neuter Your Pet

Most pet owners are understandably hesitant to subject their beloved companions to any form of surgery that isn't strictly necessary, delaying or foregoing sexual sterilization as an elective procedure. But while spay and neuter surgery may not be a matter of immediate life or death, it should still be considered necessary for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Population and resource management - The more puppies and kittens enter the world, the more owners must scramble to feed and care for them. Many simply can't manage the burden, forcing the animals to be turned over to shelters that may have no choice but to euthanize them. This sad outcome (for the animal community and for your own household) can be avoided by removing your pet's ability to reproduce.
  • Disease protection - It's only logical that when our Gary veterinarian removes your pet's reproductive organs, he also removes a key factor in your pet's reproductive disease risk. Uterine, ovarian and testicular cancer risks are eliminated, while prostate disease and breast cancers risks are significantly reduced. In this respect, spay and neuter surgery can actually save your pet's life.
  • Behavioral benefits - Pets who are no longer producing sex hormones are no longer driven by the frustrations and compulsions of heat cycles. These behaviors may include acts of aggression toward humans and other animals as well as roaming away from the house in search of mates, any of which can lead to injuries or other hazards.

Understanding Spay and Neuter Surgery

Our veterinarian in Gary will discuss your pet's upcoming surgery with you so you'll know what to expect from it and how to care for your pet afterward. While adult animals can be sterilized, pre-adults are more likely to receive the full health benefits of sterilization and less likely to experience surgical complications. Neuter surgeries generally take less time than spay surgeries, but either procedure can often be completed in a matter of minutes. Once the anesthesia wears off, you can take your pet home that same day. Our veterinarian in Gary will provide you with post-operative instructions on checking the surgery site, limiting your pet's activities and other helpful recovery tips.

I have been bringing all of my dogs to Glen Park Animal Hospital for the past 20 years and have found their service to be excellent! I am a nurse and have found that the care, competency and compassion that the entire staff gives to the animals is as good as (and in some instances even better than) the "human doctors/hospitals"!! Dr. Larson explains everything and does good follow-up with my "fur-babies". You can tell that the entire staff loves their job!
