Having a puppy or kitten involves making some big decisions early in their life. For starters, do you want to continue having more kittens or puppies through reproduction? If not, then pet neutering in Bloomington, IL is an important process for your dog or cat. At Fairway Knolls Veterinary Hospital our vet Dr. David Tatro offers some much-requested advice about pet neutering.
Pet neutering is the medical procedure that involves removing the testicles of a dog or cat. This simple and quick pet surgery ensures that the male dog or cat will not be able to reproduce. Dogs and cats as young as eight weeks can be neutered. It is recommended that you get your pet neutered before they go into heat and reproduce.
The recovery period for neutered pets is not that long since it is a relatively simple pet surgery. You will need to provide your pet with additional care after the surgery, such as providing them with pain medication and monitoring the wound. You will not be able to bathe your pet’s surgical area for 10 days. In addition, the pet needs to be kept relatively calm and still for two weeks after the surgery.
One of the main benefits of getting a dog or cat neutered is to improve their health. When you neuter a male pet it eliminates the risk of that animal developing prostate problems and testicular cancer. It will also ensure your male dog or cat will not leave your home or property in search of a female companion. In general, dogs and cats that have been neutered are less aggressive and better behaved. Perhaps the biggest reason that pet owners neuter their dogs and cats is to prevent them from having a litter of pups or kittens, which can be costly and more than you, the pet owner, are prepared for.
