Spaying & Neutering: Responsible Pet Ownership
With an ever-present overpopulation of unwanted cats and dogs, as well as the simple fact that there are never enough loving homes for all in need, spaying or neutering pets has become a commonly accepted practice and one of responsible pet ownership.
Two of the most common procedures we do here at SoMa Animal Hospital are spaying and neutering. The procedure itself is relatively quick and results in minimal pain and recovery time afterwards. It prevents unwanted pregnancies as well as many health problems in your pet long-term.
Benefits Of Spaying & Neutering
