Pure Paws Veterinary Care of Clinton Hill is experienced in spay and neuter, mass removal, and various basic soft tissue procedures. Should your pet require a more complex operation, we have a relationship with a board certified surgeon who will perform orthopedic surgery, fracture repair, and other more complicated soft tissue procedures.
We understand that surgery may be a scary or stressful experience for you and your pet. That is why we take every precaution to make your pet’s surgery as safe and seamless as possible. Before any surgical procedure, we offer in-house blood testing to screen your pet for any conditions that could potentially create an issue during surgery. Then, our doctors individualize your pet’s anesthesia plan based on the particular procedure as well as your pet’s age, breed, blood test results, pre-existing conditions, and prior anesthetic experience. During anesthesia and surgery, a trained veterinary technician will continuously monitor your pet’s vitals, including arterial oxygen level, heart rate, respiratory rate, and core body temperature, using our advanced monitoring system.
We also seek to comfort every pet owner by providing a clear explanation of why a particular procedure is necessary, what the procedure will entail, and what post-operative care will look like.
Spaying or neutering your pet is highly recommended by our vets at Pure Paws Veterinary Care of Clinton Hill. Preventing your pet from impregnating other pets or becoming pregnant themselves is only one of the benefits of this procedure. It can also protect them from a whole host of potential health issues.
Neutering and spaying refer to the same general procedure— removing the reproductive organs in your pet. When performed on a male, it’s known as neutering. When performed on a female, it’s called spaying.
In females, spaying reduces uterine and mammary issues including infection and cancer, and puts an end to regular ‘heat’ cycles which can cause discomfort and behavioral issues. Spaying can also lead to reduced instinct to roam, howl, mark spots with urine, and become aggressive
In males, the neutering procedure reduces aggression, urine marking, howling, and the urge to roam. It also prevents diseases that are common in unneutered male dogs, including prostate disease and testicular cancer.
