You can obtain this invaluable form of preventative wellness care right here at Florence Animal Hospital in Florence, SC.
Preparations, Procedures, and Recovery
You can have your pet spayed or neutered anytime from 8 weeks onward -- but the earlier, the better.
Sterilizing your pet before sexual maturity generally provides the greatest health benefits.
We'll perform a preliminary exam to check your pet's health and anesthesia tolerance.
Neuter surgeries typically take only a few minutes; some spay surgeries can take up to 90 minutes, especially if a mature patient is in heat. We may then provide your pet with a neck cone to prevent licking or biting at the incision.
Your veterinarian will also prescribe any painkillers, antibiotics, and home care routine needed to help your pet enjoy a safe and speedy recovery.>
