Spay and Neuter

Part of being a responsible animal owner is making important decisions like whether to have your pet spayed or neutered.

Spaying and Neutering Saves Lives

The thought of sending your pet in for surgery is naturally concerning, but when it comes to spaying/neutering, the benefits greatly outweigh the very rare potential risks. At Ortega Animal Care Center, we perform spaying and neutering for pets in San Juan Capistrano, Ladera Ranch, San Clemente, Dana Point, Mission Viejo, and the surrounding areas. When you choose us for your dog or cat’s procedure, you can rest assured they will be in good hands every step of the way.

Benefits of Spaying and Neutering

If you think that preventing unwanted litters is the only benefit of having a pet spayed or neutered, think again! Knowing that your dog or cat won’t contribute to the already-overwhelming unwanted pet problem is a great reason to have them spayed/neutered, but it certainly is not the only one.

Spaying and neutering lower or eliminate the risk of certain illnesses, including diabetes, mammary tumors and cancer, prostate problems, and more. These common procedures can also curb problematic behavior, like howling, yowling, roaming, spraying, and even aggression.

When you choose us for your pet’s spay or neuter, we will carefully examine them to make sure they are healthy enough to undergo their procedure. A staff member will keep a close eye on them during and after surgery to ensure they are safe and comfortable every step of the way. And when it’s time for your furry friend to head home, we will provide detailed aftercare instructions to help you care for them as they recover.
