Spay & Neuter

Give Your Little One a Healthier Life with Our Spay & Neuter Services in Baton Rouge

Spaying or neutering your pet has a number of benefits. A few include giving your pet a longer, healthier life and reducing behavioral problems. Additional medical benefits of spay and neuter surgery include preventing uterine infections, cancer of the reproductive tract as well as some prostate issues. Mammary tumor development can be almost totally eliminated if pets are spayed before their first heat cycle. Spaying or neutering your little furry one serves as the best protection from these potential medical issues.

Having your pet fixed will also lower aggression. Unneutered cats and dogs become territorial and will spray strong-smelling urine all over your home. By neutering your pets, some aggressive behavior may subside.
