Our Veterinarians in Scarsdale Spay and Neuter Recommendations

At Central Animal Hospital, we recommend that you spay and neuter pets to protect their health. We recommend spaying or neutering your pet at 6 months of age. dog wearing cone after being neutered and spayed At Central Animal Hospital.

Spaying and neutering your pets will not cause them to become overweight. In fact, these surgeries have a range of positive health benefits. From reducing the likelihood of testicular cancer in male pets to decreasing a female pet’s risk of breast tumor or uterine infections, veterinarians agree your pets will live longer and healthier lives after being neutered. 

Spay/neuter services also even out a pet’s temperament and can prevent pet marking and roaming behaviors that occur when pets are not spayed or neutered. 

What to Expect at a Spay/Neuter Appointment 

Our veterinarians, serving all of Westchester County, perform spay and neuter surgeries all the time. It is a very safe procedure. Surgeries are performed using anesthesia so your pet feels no pain, and your pet’s vitals are constantly monitored during surgery and during recovery afterward.  We will  provide you with complete aftercare instructions.
