Spay and Neuter in Hoboken, Bayonne, and Jersey City
When you get your pet spayed or neutered you gift them with a longer, happier life. Spay and neuter procedures offer a multitude of medical and behavioral benefits for your animal companion.
The Peace of Mind that Spaying and Neutering Your Pet Offers
When you get your female pet spayed, you give her a less stressful life free from disruptive heat cycles. When you get your male pet neutered, he is less likely to roam the neighborhood looking for a mate. Besides that, you’ll have peace of mind knowing you’re not contributing to animal homelessness in any way. Animals that are not “fixed” can have numerous litters throughout a lifetime and those litters can create up to thousands of more animals. We’re happy to serve the pets of Bayonne, Hoboken, Downtown Jersey City, and Jersey City Heights, New Jersey with this valuable procedure.
Health Benefits of Spaying and Neutering Your Pet
The medical and behavioral benefits your furry family member receives from spaying and neutering are some they couldn’t get through any other means. Some cancers, which can turn deadly, are greatly reduced by getting your pet spayed or neutered. Undesirable behavior like urine marking and spraying is also either reduced or gone altogether when the procedure is done while they’re still pups or kittens.
Some of the benefits pets receive include:
- The chances for testicular cancer is eliminated.
- The chances for prostate disease is greatly reduced.
- They are less likely to mount other animals, which can lead to altercations.
- Testosterone is reduced, so aggressive behavior may be as well.
- The chances of developing malignant breast tumors are greatly reduced.
- The chances for ovarian and uterine cancer are greatly reduced or eliminated.
- It decreases the amount of unwanted pregnancies and litter

- Give them a quiet place to recover for at least 24 hours.
- Keep your pet relaxed and try to keep them from running and jumping for up to two weeks.
- Don’t give your pet a bath for at least ten days afterward.
- Check the incision site every day and watch out for unusual redness, swelling, or discharge.
