Why It’s Important to Spay and Neuter Pets
The core purpose of spaying and neutering dogs and cats is to curb unwanted pregnancies and reduce stray animal overpopulation. But in addition to that, spay and neuter surgeries also benefit individual animals from a health and behavior perspective. The key is to spay/neuter your pet at the best possible time, which depends on their health, breed, size, and of course age.
At VO Vets, we recommend having your pet spayed or neutered between 6-8 months of age, after they have completed their puppy/kitten vaccines. However, if your pet is a large or extra-large breed dog, we will likely have them wait until 12 months of age or older to undergo spay/neuter surgery.
