Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the minimum age and weight for my pet to be spayed or neutered?
    Dogs and cats must be at least 3 months old and 3 lbs. to be spayed or neutered at our clinic.
  • What is Spaying?
    When your female dog is spayed, a veterinarian performs surgery, under anesthesia, to remove her uterus and ovaries through an incision in her stomach.
  • What is Neutering?
    When your male dog or cat is neutered, a veterinarian anesthetizes the patient and surgically removes the pet's testicles through an incision on the front of their scrotum. A relatively simple procedure, neutering makes it impossible for your dog to father any puppies.
  • Why Should I Spay or Neuter My Dog?
    There are many health benefits to having your dog spayed or neutered. Research has shown that spaying and neutering reduce your dog's risk of cancer (testicular cancer for male dogs and breast cancer for female dogs). Unspayed females often suffer from a uterus infection called pyometra. And males who are neutered are less likely to have prostate issues. Spaying and neutering can help with behavior issues as well. Neutering male dogs can help make them less aggressive and dominant. And spaying will stop your female dog's heat cycle. When she's in heat, she may make dangerous decisions to escape your home or yard to try and find a mate. Your veterinarian will likely reinforce that dogs who are spayed or neutered live longer, healthier lives.
  • Why is Save An Angel's Spay/Neuter Clinic Less Expensive?
    Save An Angel is a nonprofit organization that provides low-cost veterinary services to further our mission to end pet homelessness and increase pet retention. Save An Angel is able to provide subsidized savings at our clinics thanks to the generosity of our donors and sponsors. These savings allow our clients to care for their pets using low-cost co-pays.
