Spay (Ovariohysterectomy)

Spay (Ovariohysterectomy)

Ovariohysterectomy is the medical procedure commonly known as spaying female pets. This procedure involves the removal of the ovaries and uterus. The Caradoc Animal Clinic operates on animals 6 months or older. It is highly recommended that we perform a pre-anaesthetic blood profile prior to giving any anaesthetic.  Click here to read more on the pre-anaesthetic blood profile.  Spaying plays a part in controlling the wild animal population.  Your female pet also releases a scent specific to male dogs while she in her heat cycle.  A male dog will find her to mate and develop an unwanted litter if you are not planning to breed! There are many health benefits to spaying your pet.  Removing the ovaries and uterus can help reduce risk of mammarian cancer, and especially developing pyometra (a puss-filled uterus that your pet cannot properly rid of).  Pyometras ultimately develop systemic infections (spread throughout the entire body).

  • "Wow! Thanks to all the staff at Anderson Vet Clinic. I feel like you all truly love what you do! My kitty, Lola and I always have such a pleasant experience when we come in. Fortunately, it’s usually just for a check-up, but I would not leave Lola in anyone else’s hands but yours. Thank you for your caring commitment!"
