Pet Spay and Neuter in Castro Valley, CA

In roughly 50% of dogs and 90% of cats, spaying your pet at a young age provides the best defense against diseases, including uterine infections and malignant or cancerous breast tumors. Testicular cancer and several prostate conditions can be avoided by neutering your male partner.

Additional advantages include:

  • Once spayed, your female pet will no longer experience heat cycles.
  • After surgery, your male pet might behave better.
  • Due to the fact that unneutered dogs will do anything to find a mate, your male dog will be less likely to run away from home.
