At Maillardville Animal Hospital, we believe in the importance of spaying/neutering puppies and kittens to provide them with a long and healthy life.
Spaying or neutering your dog or cat will reduce common problems such as:
A pyometra, or uterine infection, is a potentially life-threatening condition that can cost thousands of dollars to treat. Occurrence is 100% preventable if your pet is spayed.
Over one-half of all mammary tumors are malignant and can spread to other areas of the body. Early spaying, prior to your pet beginning its heat cycles, significantly reduces the incidence of tumor formation.
There are more puppies and kittens overpopulating shelters than there are people willing to provide them with love and care. Sadly, many are euthanized.
Testicular cancer can be eliminated and prostatitis, an infection causing malignant or benign swelling of the prostate, can be greatly reduced with early neutering.
Unwanted behavioral problems such as dominance aggression, marking territory, and wandering can be avoided with early spaying/neutering.
We’re a renowned animal hospital in Coquitlam and pet owners trust us to look after the needs of their beloved companions. We are committed to delivering the very highest of veterinary care and affection.
