Spaying your pet has many benefits. The procedure, which prevents female animals from becoming pregnant and reproducing, can help your dog or cat live a longer, healthier life. Spaying will not change your pet’s personality.

By spaying your female pet, you’re protecting her against potentially deadly diseases, including bacterial infections, reproductive tract diseases, and several types of cancer. You also won’t have to worry about her going into heat. This means avoiding the mess that often accompanies the heat cycle in female dogs and the pacing and crying that happens with female cats. In addition, spaying your pet will help control the dog and cat overpopulation problem, keeping more animals out of shelters.

Spaying, which involves removing the ovaries and uterus, is a surgical procedure and does need to be performed with the pet under anesthesia. We follow strict protocols and continually monitor your pet’s vital signs to help ensure her safety. Please see the descriptions under Anesthesia and Patient Monitoring for more information on what we do to keep your pet safe.

What Our Clients Say…

I have had great experiences at this clinic for many years. My dog is now 14 years old due in part to the yearly exams he receives at the Golden Valley Animal Hospital. The doctors are very knowledgeable, kind, and gentle.

Their staff is friendly and they are amazing with our dogs. I have had 4 different dogs as patients at golden valley animal hospital and i would never take them anywhere else for their care. Their 2 locations are both easy to get to and make scheduling appointments at the time you are looking for a breeze.
