Benefits of a Spay or Neuter Pet Surgery by our Veterinarian in Hayward
Spaying and neutering dogs and cats is considered a routine pet surgery. It also provides many health benefits for male and female pets. Male pets may exhibit less aggression, a reduced desire to roam and better overall behavior. The risk of testicular cancer is eliminated, and they are at a reduced risk for prostate cancer. Female cats at dogs that are spayed are at less of a risk for developing uterine infections and malignant and benign breast tumors.

Choosing spay and neuter services with our Hayward veterinarian helps ensure that your pet doesn’t develop certain infections and diseases, and it may even increase your pet’s lifespan, especially in dogs. According to research reported by PLOS One, dogs who are sterilized live an average of 1.5 years longer than their unsterilized counterparts.
Our veterinarian in Hayward sterilizes puppies, kittens and adult and senior pets. When you bring your pet into our office for a sterilization surgery, out veterinarian will explain the procedure to you and provide you with aftercare instructions.
The average male sterilization takes between two minutes and 20 minutes depending on whether you’re neutering a male cat or dog and the size and breed of your pet, according to MSPCA.
