Spay & Neuter Services
One of the most routine surgeries we perform at The Animal Hospital of Barrington are spay and neuter surgeries. Spaying or neutering your pet can be one of the best things that you can do for their overall health and happiness.
The benefits of spaying or neutering your pet include:
- Longer lifespan for female pets
- Reduction in testicular cancer and prostate problems
- Female pets won’t go into heat
- Male pets may behave better and be less prone to wandering away
In addition to the benefits listed above, spaying or neutering your pet can help reduce overpopulation and stray animals. The cost of caring for an unexpected litter of puppies or kittens can be overly burdensome. If you aren’t planning on breeding your pet, spaying or neutering them is an excellent option.
Recovering from Surgery
The recovery process after a surgical procedure is just as important as the surgery itself. Proper post-operative care helps your pet stay comfortable throughout the healing process, allowing them to heal faster and correctly. Our Barrington veterinary team will send you home with detailed instructions as to how to care for your pet after their surgery.
Tips for a speedy recovery:
- Provide your pet with a quiet, comfortable space indoors to rest
- Moderate your pet’s activity levels, avoiding activities like running or jumping
- Avoid bathing your pet or getting the incision area wet
- Inspect your pet’s incision regularly to ensure proper healing
- Prevent your pet from licking or scratching the incision
If you notice any swelling or redness around the incision site, or if your pet seems lethargic or isn’t eating, this could be a sign of infection. Give us a call right away if you suspect your pet’s incision is infected.
