One of the most important part of pet ownership is making sure your dog or cat is spayed or neutering. Controlling the homeless pet population is one of the greatest services you can do to your community and to the pets in it! Spaying and neutering not only benefits the pet population, but it also has many positive health implications for your pet!

Gresham Animal Hospital believes in helping your pet be the best it can be for the longest time possible. This includes neutering both male and female dogs and cats. This will make them less territorial and less likely to fight, but also significantly decrease or eliminate deadly diseases like uterine/testicular cancers and mammary (breast) cancer; prostate disease and uterine infections. Ideally, this surgery should be performed between 3 and 6 months of age.
