Spay and Neuter Services in Creedmoor, NC

If you want to prevent your pets from having kittens or puppies and are looking forways to keep them healthy, spay/neuter surgery may be what you are looking for. At South Granville Animal Hospital in Creedmoor, NC, we provide this procedure/surgery for pets. Let’s go over what this veterinary service involves  and what makes it so important:


What Benefits Does Spaying and Neutering Offer?

These surgeries can help keep your beloved pets safe from potentially deadly diseases as well as provide  other benefits, including:

●          Reduced pet overpopulation

●          Decreased roaming in males and females

●          Lower risk of testicular cancer in male pets

●          Reduced risk of reproductive cancers in female pets

●          Potentially lower vet bills

●          Reduced risk of undesirable behaviors, like marking territory

What Exactly Is Spay/Neuter Surgery?

Both of these involve removing organs needed for reproduction. For female dogs and cats, spaying means removing the ovaries and/or uterus. Male pets have their testes removed via neutering.

When’s the Right Time for It?

Are your pets still kittens or puppies? They’ll need to be several weeks old before having this surgery done. Our vet can let you know the best time to have this procedure done for your specific animal.

Is It a Safe Procedure?

Spaying and neutering are among the more common kinds of surgeries done in veterinary medicine. We give pets general anesthesia to ensure sedation throughout the procedure for their safety and our staff monitors your pet as he sleeps to make sure he is healthy. When the anesthesia wears off, we will make sure he is safe until he is fully alert and conscious. Since it’s a same-day procedure, your pet won’t be here overnight.

The Spaying and Neutering Recovery Process

Your pet needs time to properly heal. Our vet will provide a list of post-op instructions for you to follow. These usually include the following:

●          Setting up a crate or bed in a calm, quiet area

●          Keeping your pet from being too active for a couple weeks

●          Putting an E-collar on your pet

●          Checking incisions for redness or other signs of infection
