Spay & Neuter

At Village Veterinary Hospital in La Jolla, we understand the importance of spaying and neutering for the health and well-being of your pet. Our experienced veterinarians offer safe and compassionate spaying and neutering services to help control pet overpopulation and promote your pet's long-term health.

The Benefits of Spaying and Neutering

  • Spaying (for females) and neutering (for males) are surgical procedures that involve the removal of the reproductive organs. These procedures offer numerous benefits, including:
  • Population Control: Spaying and neutering help prevent pet overpopulation by reducing the number of unwanted litters, which can contribute to overcrowded shelters and euthanasia.
  • Health Benefits: Spaying and neutering can reduce the risk of certain health problems, such as uterine infections, mammary tumors, testicular cancer, and prostate issues.
  • Behavioral Benefits: Spaying and neutering can help reduce behaviors related to mating instincts, such as roaming, marking territory, aggression, and the urge to escape.
  • Longer Lifespan: Pets that are spayed or neutered tend to live longer, healthier lives than those that are not, as they are less likely to roam, fight, or be injured in accidents.
