Spay and Neuter Services in Boise, ID

Spay and neuter procedures from Animals ‘R’ Us and other clinics are one of the primary ways to help control the animal populations in the Boise area. There are also some distinct health benefits for dogs and cats if you opt to have your pets spayed or neutered. We offer these procedures to our clients in a safe, clean and humane manner at Animals ‘R’ Us.

Benefits of Spay and Neuter Procedures

It’s your decision as a pet owner whether to have your animals spayed or neutered. Here’s a look at the potential health benefits of spaying female cats and dogs:

  • Eliminates the risk of uterine infections (pyometra)
  • Prevents the risk of developing breast cancers
  • Eliminates the risk of ovarian and uterine cancers
  • Removes the stresses of hormonal fluctuations
  • Prevents them from going into heat cycles
  • Reduces or eliminates separation anxiety

Neutering male pets can create some similar benefits for them:

  • Eliminates the risk of testicular cancer
  • Reduces the chance of developing a prostate infection
  • Reduces aggression levels of male cats & dogs
  • Pets become less likely to roam outside the yard

The Spay and Neuter Procedures

Dogs and cats will receive a checkup prior to their spay or neuter procedure, to make sure they are in good health. This will include a blood test. If your pet has some type of health problem that could complicate the outcome of the operation, that may have to be resolved first.

Cats should be at least five months old before having them spayed or neutered. Dogs can generally be spayed or neutered if they are at least four months old, depending on their size and breed.

Your pet will be administered anesthesia for the operation, so they will sleep through it. The spay and neuter operations consist of the following:

  • Neuter Procedure: A small incision is made on the scrotum to remove the animal’s testicles.
  • Spay Procedure: The vet makes an incision beneath the animal’s belly button. The operation can involve the removal of ovaries and uterus or the ovaries alone.

Our staff will also provide you with all the information needed for at-home care, to ensure that your pet fully recovers. Spay and neuter procedures are quite common, and your pet will be able to go home with you the same day of the operation.
