Spay & Neuter FAQs

We at Sheehy Animal Hospital in Livonia, MI, are honored to provide veterinary care for your pet. From routine examinations to pet surgery, we have what you need here. A primary service we provide is spaying and neutering for your pets at our animal hospital in Livonia. We are here to help with our pet care, even for exotic animals.

Why Should I Spay or Neuter My Pet?

There are several reasons why this service is important for pets. First, it prevents the animal from becoming pregnant or impregnating other animals and helps control pet overpopulation. Spaying also eliminates the behavior and health concerns associated with a female pet being in heat. Neutering helps reduce and control male aggression, marking behavior, and roaming tendencies.

What Can I Expect from Surgery? 

With modern advancements, spaying or neutering your pet isn't an overly complicated process. We do need general anesthesia, but our veterinary staff keeps a close eye and monitors all patients to ensure they are safe and comfortable throughout the surgery. Your pet will have a few sutures after the procedure, but those will last only for a few weeks after the surgery.

When Should I Spay or Neuter My Pet?

This procedure should be done early in your pet's life. It may be done while your pet is a puppy or kitten because their bodies are still developing. This is so they can respond better to the procedure. It can also better safeguard them from negative health consequences in the future.
