Spay And Neuter In McKinney, TX
About Spay and Neuter
There are many reasons to spay or neuter your dog or cat, including preventing overpopulation and avoiding euthanization. Other benefits of having your pet spayed or neutered include:
- Males: Neutered male dogs and cats are less likely to engage in aggressive behavior. In addition, neutered pets are less likely to spray urine to mark their territory or roam from home in search of a mate.
- Females: Spayed females will not go into heat or have unplanned litters of puppies or kittens. Spaying also eliminates the chance of certain health problems, like ovarian cancer or uterine cancer.

How Spay and Neuter Procedures Work
In addition to promoting longer, healthier lifespans, spay and neuter procedures can save you money in the long run, especially when you factor in the cost of having a litter of puppies or kittens. Most cats and dogs can be spayed or neutered as young as six months old. During a visit to our McKinney, TX vet office, Dr. Finn will provide more information.
The spay or neuter procedure is performed while your pet is asleep under general anesthesia. A small incision will be made, followed by removing the ovaries and uterus (females) or testicles (males) and then closing the incision with stitches. For both spay and neuter at Pet Method in McKinney, TX, the recovery period following surgery is around two weeks. We will provide home-based care instructions to help keep your pet as comfortable as possible during the healing process.
