Female Pet Spaying Surgery

A responsible part of being a pet owner is pet spaying. Birth control for pets is extremely important for maintaining harmony in the human-animal relationship as well as population control. Mill Creek Vet Clinic in Mississauga provides female cat and dog spaying services after a detailed health inspection of your pet. Our experienced vets have performed pet spaying surgeries in safe environment with a successful track record.

Reasons to Neuter Female Pets

    • Behavior Control – Female pets experience weird behaviour patterns during their seasonal calls. In case they aren’t pregnant, then they respond to these active calls in order to seek male partners. Spaying also makes sure that this behaviour is controlled.
    • Population control – Female cats that are neutered before puberty help in controlling feline population in the locality. After neutering, queens can give birth to at most 3 litters in a year.
    • Unwanted Male Attention – Females which are into season attract unwanted male pets creating nuisance in the environment. Fighting or caterwauling in such instances can be avoided by spaying.
    • Welfare issues – A huge number of kittens or puppies cannot be given proper attention or a good standard of living. They also stand a big chance of getting infected by diseases. The adoption chances also decrease subsequently.
    • Health issues – Female cats that stay unneutered are more prone to mammary tumors and womb infections (pyometra). These infections get passed to kittens too. Puppies who are in their early days are also prone to infectious diseases. Ovarian diseases can be easily prevented after spaying.
    • Genetic Disease Control – Spaying also ensures that the defective genes are not passed forward to the successive generations. Spaying makes monitoring of genetic control better
    • Wildlife issues – Female cats who become a mother have a characteristic of going on a hunt so as to feed their offspring. Spaying helps in preventing such hunting characteristics. The same also goes for the female dogs.

Dog Spaying

Also known as sterilizing or desexing, spaying generally refers to the process of surgically removing internal reproductive organs of female dogs. In this procedure, the ovaries, Fallopian tubes and uterine horns are removed which are responsible for egg production, fetus development etc. In short, the reproductive system of the female dog is removed.

Other crucial organs that are related to the anatomy are not at all harmed during the entire surgery. Ovarian related diseases like; ovarian cancer, bacterial infection, uterine cancer, mucometra, metritis, Pyometron, polycystic ovaries or endomtritis can be prevented. The health benefits of spaying are so significant that they hard to ignore.

Cat Spaying

Spaying procedure performed on cats is similar to that of dogs and aims at removing their reproductive organs. Here too, the vets perform a surgery so as to remove Fallopian tubes, uterine horns and ovaries of the cat’s uterine body. This prevents fetal development and egg production. Female hormone, Estrogen, production organs are also removed which further lower the behavioral issues that are associated with this hormone. Cat behavioral traits like roaming, calling males or fighting are resolved to a great extent.

Recovery Process

After surgery the spayed pets should be allowed to recover in an isolated environment. Dietary requirements should be as per the normal routine. Excessive movement should be prevented as this causes stress on organs. Also, pet owners should refrain from taking their pet for a bath for at least 10 days post surgery.
