Dog and Cat Spay and Neuter Services in Waunakee, WI

Spay and neuter surgeries are the most common procedures provided for dogs and cats. While we recommend these surgeries for their ability to reduce stray animal overpopulation and crowding in shelters, they can also play an important role in the health of the individual pet. Our animal hospital is fully equipped to perform spay and neuter surgeries in a safe, comfortable environment, with our doctors and team members monitoring and caring for your pet as they would their own.

We Spay and Neuter Based on Your Pet’s Individual Needs

Aurora Veterinary Care takes your pet’s individual health and needs seriously. We do not recommend spay and neuter surgeries for every pet, or based on the pet's age alone. Additional factors, such as size/weight, breed, temperament, and overall health also play an important role in determining the best timeframe for your pet’s procedure.

To discuss your pet’s options and answer any questions you have about spay and neuter surgery please contact us.
