Do indoor pets need to be spayed or neutered?
For sure. Pets are naturally curious creatures. All it can take is a matter of minutes, a window or door left open and your pet may find another animal to mate with. If they are not fixed, your pet will also miss out on the other benefits of the procedure such as longer lifespan and a better disposition (e.g. less vocalization, no urine marking, roaming).
What is the best age to get my pet fixed?
This will be based on their species. Dogs can be safely neutered or spayed at 6-months-old as they should already be fully developed. Cats on the other hand can undergo these procedures at the 5-month mark. Rabbits can be fixed at 6 months. If you are adopting a pet and are unsure of their age, please consult with our team and we can suggest if it is OK for them to be operated on.
