What you need to know about Spaying/Neutering your pet

While spaying / neutering a pet is a routine procedure performed by a veterinarian, it is still surgery and special care and attention must be given to ensure the patient is healthy and no complications occur during the procedure. At the Animal Medical Centre the spaying/ neutering procedure involves the following to ensure your pet gets the best health care:

1.

Basic blood count
To ensure your pet is safe for anesthesia

2.

Induction anesthesia

3.

Continuous gaseous anesthesia

4.

Patient monitoring

5.

Pain Management

6.

Antibiotics

7.

Non-Absorbable suture
(To close skin. Suture will be removed 10 post surgery)

8.

E-Collar
(A protective collar worn by pets to prevent biting and licking of wounds to ensure a speedy healing process)

We advise owners to ensure their pets have the 3 booster vaccines in the first year before any surgery is performed.
