It’s time to stop believing the myths about spaying and neutering!

Unfortunately, there are many myths and misconceptions that give people the wrong idea about spaying and neutering, and that’s why our veterinarian is here to get to the bottom of those myths. Check out our last blog to learn about the myths we’ve already debunked, and keep reading to learn more:
Myth #3. You should allow your female pet to have a litter before you get her spayed.
You shouldn’t wait to spay your female. The fact is that, the longer you wait, the bigger her risk will be for developing uterine infections and mammary tumors. As a general rule, you should try to get females spayed at anywhere from six to nine months, which is before she goes into heat for the first time.
Myth #4. Spaying or neutering is painful and dangerous for your pet.
While it’s true that all surgeries come with a risk and there are no two cases that are exactly the same, spaying and neutering are very common procedures. Your pet may be uncomfortable for the first few days after their surgery, but sooner rather than later, he or she will be back to normal again!
