Pet Spay and Neuter for Better Lives in Bayonne, Hoboken and Jersey City
When you get your animal companion spayed or neutered you gift them with a longer, happier life. Pet spay and neuter has a multitude of medical and behavioral benefits for your furry baby. When you get your girl pet spayed, you give her a less stressful life free from disruptive heat cycles. When you get your boy 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 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, Jersey City Downtown, and Jersey City Heights, New Jersey with this valuable procedure.
Giving Valuable Benefits
The medical and behavioral benefits your furry family member receives from pet spay and neuter are some they couldn’t get any other way. Some cancers, which can turn deadly, are greatly reduced by getting your pet spayed or neutered. Annoying 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 for 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 litters.
What to Keep in Mind
We monitor your loyal companion closely before, during and after their pet spay and neuter procedure. Some things to keep in mind as a caring pet owner include:
- Avoid feeding and watering your pet at least twelve hours before the time of surgery.
- 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 afterwards.
- Check the incision site every day and watch out for unusual redness, swelling or discharge.

“The staff here is fantastic, from the receptionists to the techs to the doctors. The feel of the hospital is very comfortable and not clinical like most places. We've seen several of the vets, who have all been great and very helpful. They are also very conscientious about following up on the pet's status which is great. I highly recommend this place.”
- Cayley A.
“The staff here is caring and patient. The doctors are also knowledgeable and answer my many questions. When I've had to wait for test results, the doctors have called me back by the time promised. My cat prefers a kind of food they don't normally carry and they ordered it for me, and continued to order it for me without asking, which is great. I haven't had a problem with wait time, either.”
- Jordan C.
“...really attentive and helpful through our dog’s epilepsy and surgeries. I can't say enough kind things about the practice. This may sound silly, but it is a huge plus that they have parking, which made running our dog in during an emergency a little easier vs. walking across town. Seriously the best vets in Hoboken I can never thank them enough.”
- Brooke S.
“This place LOVES animals, from the front desk to the gentle techs. My dog has had to be there quite a bit this month and I never feel taken advantage of financially (all vets are expensive) but they really CARE about animals. It is never fun watching a pet be sick or injured but I can't recommend them enough.”
- Ellyn M.
“All the doctors are knowledgeable, helpful, caring, friendly, and best of all - approachable with all my questions. They know their stuff, and when they walk into the room - they have already read up all the back ground of the specific pet. I'm quite impressed with their prep work.”
- Klessie P.
“From the bottom of my heart I thank all the doctors as well as each and every member of the staff who cared for my Scooter with such professionalism and kindness throughout his entire life. The compassion and understanding that you showed him and me on that last day is something I will never forget.”
- Maria J.
“It meant so much to me that you treated B.J. and Baby Zoey with respect. There aren’t enough beautiful words to express my gratitude. All I could say is if there were more people in the world like you than all our animals would be loved, cared for and happy. You guys are truly the best.”
