Spays / Neuters

Spays & Neuters

***All dogs/cats must be up-to-date on vaccines. Dogs older than 1 year must be current on annual heartworm testing. Cats must have been tested for FeLV/FIV previously.

***Pain medication & Elizabethan collars are included at no extra charge.

***Intravenous catheters and IV fluids will always be used.

***At Premier Vet Care, we recommend spaying or neutering your dog or cat between 4-6 months of age. If you have a large dog (adult weight is or will be 60 pounds or more), it is recommended to perform a gastropexy (tack the stomach down) at the same time.

At Premier Vet Care, we offer high quality (yet not expensive) spays & neuters. Call us for more information. 972-463-VETS.

Every year, millions of unwanted dogs and cats, including puppies and kittens, are euthanized. The good news is that responsible pet owners can make a difference. By having your dog or cat sterilized, you will do your part to prevent the birth of unwanted puppies and kittens. Spaying and neutering prevents unwanted litters and may reduce many of the behavioral problems associated with the mating instinct.

Spaying eliminates heat cycles and generally reduces the unwanted behaviors that may lead to owner frustration. Neutering male dogs and cats reduces the breeding instinct and can have a calming effect, making them less inclined to roam and more content to stay at home.

Early spaying of female dogs and cats can help protect them from some serious health problems later in life such as uterine infections (pyometra), uterine cancer, and breast cancer. Neutering your male pet can also lessen its risk of developing benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate gland) and testicular cancer. Did you know that 90% of dogs that are hit by cars are intact, male dogs? Did you know that 80% of cats that are hit by cars are intact, male cats?  

The procedure has no effect on a pet's intelligence or ability to learn, play, work or hunt. Most pets tend to be better behaved following surgical removal of their ovaries or testes, making them more desirable companions.

If you would like to schedule a spay or neuter, here's what you do:

    • Call us to schedule a surgery date (972) 463-8387.
    • Do not feed your pet the morning of surgery. You can offer water though.
    • Drop off you pet between 8:00am - 8:30am.
    • Fill out the surgery consent sheet and leave us your contact information (phone number and email). You can print this out and fill it out at home to make the process easier the next morning.
    • Pick up around 4:30pm - 5:45pm the same day! If possible, we will give you an assigned time to pick up so that we can avoid a bottleneck with other owners picking up at the same time.
