Spay / Neuter Services

Orchidectomy (neuter) and ovariohysterectomy (spay) are common procedures performed at Mill Street Animal Clinic.

Neutering involves surgical removal of both testicles from a male while spaying involves surgical removal of the ovaries and uterus from a female. Both procedures are performed under general anesthesia.

Health benefits of these procedures include pet population control, curbing unwanted behaviours such as roaming or sexual behaviours, cancer prevention, and preventing serious infections such as pyometra (a life-threatening infection in the uterus).

Timing of spay/neuter is important. We can help discuss the pros and cons of surgery and direct the best age for spay/neuter depending on your pet's breed, sex, and intended lifestyle.

Anesthetic safety is important. Preanesthetic bloodwork should be run to look for any congenital or acquired pathology that may affect anesthetic safety. . We have registered veterinary technicians monitoring your pet's heart and breathing rate, blood pressure, temperature, ECG trace and oxygen levels. IV catheters are placed and IV fluids are run to support organ perfusion and blood pressure. We use balanced anesthesia and multimodal pain approaches to keep your pet safe and comfortable.

On surgery day please take up your pets food after midnight so they are fasted prior to their anesthetic. Dinner the night before is fine. Water should continue to be provided at all times. We will call you to remind you the day before your surgery.

We are very experienced with these surgeries, call us today!
