Dog Spaying and Neutering

At Petroglyph Animal Hospital, the safety and comfort of your pet is of utmost importance. Spays and neuters, typically performed at the onset of sexual maturity, are two of our most commonly performed surgical procedures. All of our spays and neuters include a pre-anesthetic exam prior to surgery, a complimentary identification tattoo in their ear, a toenail cut, and take-home pain medication. Spaying or neutering your animal is vital for helping to control the overpopulation of strays in our community and may also help reduce the risks of unwanted behaviours such as marking, roaming, aggressive behaviours, as well as help prevent life-threatening medical conditions such as certain cancers, uterine infections, and prostate issues.

Our veterinarians are happy to discuss the benefits of spaying or neutering your pet and to answer any questions or concerns you may have regarding the procedure.
