The Advantages of
Spaying and Neutering

At Belton Small Animal Clinic we recommend nearly all our patients receive spay or neuter surgery. Some pet owners may worry about the thought of eliminating their cat or dog's ability to breed.

However, this common procedure brings a number of health benefits to male and female pets, while also combating the problems of pet overpopulation. Each year millions of cats and dogs end up in shelters, and not all of them will find forever homes.

By having your pet spayed or neutered, you can avoid unwanted pet pregnancies, thereby reducing over population and increasing shelter pets' chances of finding a loving home.

When to Spay or Neuter


Our doctors generally recommend all puppies and kittens be spayed or neutered at six months of age. After your pet's first round of vaccinations, we will discuss a timetable for your pet's spay or neuter surgery. Depending on your pet's size or health, their spay or neuter surgery could be delayed, but this is uncommon.

As with any surgery, our team examines each pet prior to their procedure and recommends blood testing to assess your pet's health before surgery. Your pet's safety is our priority! If it's found that a patient has another medical condition or cannot undergo anesthesia, the surgery will be delayed to address the issue. Your pet will be monitored regularly during the procedure and recovery.

After surgery, we will update you on your pet's condition. Upon discharge, we will go over follow-up instructions and thoroughly answer any questions or concerns you may have.
