Getting Your Pet Fixed

At Heart of Brooklyn Veterinary Hospital, our team understands that making the decision to have your pet spayed or neutered can be overwhelming for many pet parents. 

While all surgeries performed under general anesthesia come with risks, these common reproductive surgeries are considered to be safe for most dogs and cats.

Our veterinarians perform these procedures on a regular basis and feel that they help pets to live healthier, more contented lives while also helping to reduce the population of unwanted dogs and cats in animal shelters.

Neutering (Males)

Neutering, or orchiectomy, is a surgical procedure where the testicles are removed from male pets, preventing them from fathering litters of kittens or puppies.

Cats - Neutering your cat can help to curb undesirable behaviours such as spraying, roaming and aggression towards other cats.

Dogs - Neutering your dog may help to reduce animal aggression, 'humping' and attempts at escaping your home or yard.

Spaying (Females)

Spaying, technically known as an ovariohysterectomy, removes a female pet's reproductive organs. This surgery prevents your pet from becoming pregnant

Cats - Spaying your cat may help prevent your kitty from escaping your home, roaming, yowling and urinating inappropriately.

Dogs - Having your female dog spayed ends their heat cycle and helps prevent pyometra (womb infection) and mammary tumours.
