Here at Central Animal Hospital, the well-being of our pet patients is our top priority. Pet surgery is a big part of what we do here, and we feel that sharing information about the surgical procedures we do with our pet owners is essential. We understand that your pets are family members, and we fully honor and respect that with every pet surgery. Spaying and neutering are the more common surgical procedures that are performed.  We make sure that pets are made as comfortable as possible before, during, and after the surgery.

Spay and Neuter Services in Scarsdale

As your veterinarian, we are experienced in spay and neuter surgery procedures. This surgery is a pet sterilization procedure that is designed to ensure pets are no longer able to reproduce.

In addition to no longer being able to reproduce, spaying and neutering may have some other very significant benefits for the pet and its owners. An animal that has been neutered will generally be a calmer pet. Many owners find that their pets are much less restless and agitated than they were prior to the surgery due to the reduction in hormones as a result of the procedure.

Pets that are spayed or neutered also tend to have less disease than those which are not. Diseases related to the reproductive organs are no longer an issue for spayed or neutered pets.

The community at large will also benefit from pet spay or neuter surgery. With pet overpopulation running rampant in the world today, running the risk of your pet adding to that problem is simply unwise. The more pets that have been spayed or neutered, the less unwanted pets there are.

We Take Pet Surgery Seriously

We understand that surgery can be a frightening concept for both you and your pet. It is important to understand that current spay and neuter techniques are as minimally invasive as possible and that the procedure and anesthesia used is very safe. Pain medications are also administered to make your pet feel as comfortable as possible.

Often, your pet will be able to recover from the surgical procedure within a short period of time. We recommend that your pet stay one night in the hospital before being released.
