Spay & Neuter

When you have your pet spayed or neutered you give them innumerable benefits they wouldn’t otherwise receive. Furthermore, you avoid contributing to animal homelessness and overpopulation. There aren’t enough people available to adopt the number of homeless pets. At Mount Kisco Veterinary Clinic, pet spay and neuter uses the same best-in-class service and safety guidelines as any of our other surgical procedures. Plus, we make sure to send pets home with detailed after-care instructions.

The benefits:

When you have your female pet spayed or your male pet neutered, they receive many medical and behavioral benefits. Consequently, both your quality of life and your pet’s is increased. In-tact pets often try to roam far and wide looking for a mate. Therefore, you’ll rest easier knowing your pet is less likely to become lost or injured after spay or neuter surgery.
Medical conditions and behavioral benefits for female pets:

  • The chances for mammary gland tumors are significantly reduced.
  • Any chance of developing ovarian cancer is eliminated.
  • Worrisome roaming behavior is reduced or eliminated.
  • Urine marking behavior is reduced or eliminated.
  • Unwanted pregnancies are eliminated.
  • Roaming behavior is reduced or eliminated.

Medical conditions and behavioral benefits for male pets:

  • Any chance of developing testicular cancer is eliminated.
  • The chances for prostate problems are reduced.
  • Urine marking behavior is reduced or eliminated.
  • Mounting behavior is reduced or eliminated.
  • Roaming behavior is reduced or eliminated.

After the surgery is complete, we call to let you know how your pet is doing and set a pick-up time. When you pick them up, you receive detailed after-care instructions. To hasten your pet’s recovery and avoid complications, please follow our instructions, including any possible follow-up visits.

There are a number of things you can do for your pet’s home recovery:

  • Give your pet a comfortable place to relax for at least 24 hours.
  • Check their incisions daily and watch out for inflammation or discharge.
  • If your pet licks or chews at their incisions, use a medical collar.
  • Try to keep your pet from running or jumping for at least two weeks.
  • Refrain from giving your pet a bath for at least 10 days.

We send our patients home with medications and we ask that you administer it as prescribed. Consider using pill pockets is your pet is less than cooperative. Most of all, we want the best for our patients.
