Spay and Neuter in Warrick County, IN

At Warrick Veterinary Clinic, we pride ourselves on providing individualized service for pets. Our pet spay and neuter service is the same; we help you decide if and when you should spay and neuter your specific breed and type of companion animal. Your pet’s wellness exam is the perfect time to talk about this important procedure. If you decide to spay and neuter your pet, they’ll receive several benefits. Because we always have the pets of Boonville and Newburgh in mind, we’ll advise you on your pet’s care afterwards too. Call us today at (812) 897-4855.

The Benefits of Spay and Neuter Surgery

When you get your female pet spayed and your male pet neutered, they receive several valuable benefits. The chances of developing certain cancers are greatly reduced or eliminated, and worrisome behavioral issues are curtailed. Nature’s instinct calls for pets to roam in search of a mate and this increases their odds of becoming lost or injured, but pet spay and neuter surgery makes this behavior less likely.

What to Expect

Dog and cat spay and neuter receives the same close attention and compassionate care as other surgeries at Warrick Veterinary Clinic. We’ll closely monitor your pet during surgery and stay with them as they come out of anesthesia. Afterwards, we’ll send you home with the appropriate medications, including a prescription for lots of TLC.

The ways you can care for your pet afterwards include:

  • Give them a quiet place to recover for at least 24 hours.
  • Keep them relaxed and soothed.
  • Keep them from running and jumping for two weeks.
  • Refrain from giving them a bath for at least ten days.
  • Check their incision site daily and watch for unusual redness, swelling or discharge.
  • Distract them from licking their incision or use a medical collar.

Please call us at (812) 897-4855 with any questions about pet spay and neuter surgery! We’re always here for pets and their humans.
