Spay and Neuter in Kirkland

At Finn Hill Animal Farm, our goal is to help all your canine and feline friends lead happy and healthy lives. It's why we strongly recommend that all pet owners have their cats and dogs spayed or neutered. Spaying and neutering has shown to have many benefits for the health and longevity of your animal, as well as beneficial effects for the community as a whole.

What is Spaying and Neutering?

Spaying and neutering is a surgical procedure in which the female or male internal reproductive organs are removed, making your pet becomes sterile. This prevents your pet from producing offspring.

Low Risk Surgery

Before spaying or neutering your animal, our Kirkland, WA veterinarian can answer any questions you may have of the procedure. At Finn Hill Animal Hospital, we do our best to tailor every procedure to safely meet each pet's individual's needs.

Spaying and neutering requires that your pet is put under general anesthesia. Common side effects following sedation, which are usually mild, include lethargy and grogginess. Your pet may also be tempted to lick or scratch at the surgical incision site, so it'll be important to use a t-shirt or collar on your pet to protect any incisions while they heal.

The Benefits of Spaying or Neutering My Pet in Kirkland

We strongly recommend spaying or neutering as part of your pet's lifelong health and wellness plan. Here are several well-known benefits to spaying and neutering your cat or dog:

  • In female cats and dogsspaying has been associated with a reduced risk of breast cancer. Spaying has also been shown to reduce the risk of ovarian tumors. Spayed females also do not go into heat, which has been known come with several problems including red discharge, excessive licking, and aggression.

  • In male cats and dogs: neutering significantly reduces the risk of both prostate enlargement and testicular cancer in male pets. Neutered males also tend to show less behavior problems, including territorial marking, barking, roaming, and aggression.

  • Community benefits: In this country, over-breeding and over-population is a real problem. Of the nearly 8 million dogs and cats sent to shelters every year, almost 3 million of them are euthanized. Spaying and neutering your animal really makes a difference. It helps to reduce the number of unwanted animals that will just end up as strays or in shelters.
