Spaying and Neutering
Did you know that spayed and neutered pets tend to live longer than those that aren’t spayed or neutered, according to recent studies? This is due to the many health benefits associated with these surgeries, which is why we recommend them for all of our canine and feline patients. Here at Spring Glen Veterinary Clinic, we’ve always wanted nothing more than to help pets live longer, healthier lives. We believe spaying/neutering is one of the many ways that we can accomplish that goal.
Dogs and cats can be spayed as young as 8 weeks and as old as 6 months of age, as long as they’re healthy. However, the exact age is dependent on your pet’s breed. We’ll be glad to discuss this in more detail with you at your puppy’s/kitten’s first wellness visit to our Hamden clinic. Most surgeries are performed on Thursdays at Central Hospital. However, cat neuters are performed here at Spring Glen.
