At What Age Should My Pet be Spayed or Neutered?
While there is no definitive answer to this question, our veterinarians are up to speed on all the latest research and studies around the potential implications of spaying or neutering a pet at different ages. They will assess your pet’s breed, lifestyle, and your family’s needs and wishes to make the best recommendation for your pet. For cats, we generally recommend spaying or neutering around 4-6 months, and for many dogs the most commonly elected time is still 6-8 months of age, but in certain breeds and individuals we may recommend delaying the surgery until full maturity. We look forward to carefully evaluating and discussing your pet’s individual situation.
Your veterinarian will be able to help you choose the best time to spay or neuter your pet based on their condition and health history. If you need to consult with them about your pet’s spay/neuter and what to expect, please call us at (248) 689-8899.
