When Should Pets be Spayed and Neutered?
All pets are unique. No two dogs or cats are likely to follow the same treatment timeline. Regarding spay and neuter surgeries, it really depends on your individual pet’s breed, health, and development. Cats and small and medium-sized dogs can usually be spayed or neutered at 6 months old, but large and extra-large dogs often need to wait until at least a year old.
We can help you determine the proper time to spay/neuter your pet based on their health history with us and whether or not they need more time to finish growing.
