Spay and Neuter

Spay and Neuter with our Fairfax Veterinarian 

It’s true that spay and neuter pet surgery is one of the most routine surgical procedures performed by veterinarians. But when pets are in the hands of our Fairfax veterinarian, they are treated by a competent and caring staff that approaches each pet surgery as non-routine and unique, taking temperament, breed, size and age into careful consideration. You won’t find this level of exacting care anywhere else, and certainly not at high volume, low cost surgery facilities. 

Importance of Spay and Neuter 

Sterilizing pets is a routine surgery for pets that protects pets’ health, improves or eliminates many objectionable behaviors, and reduces the numbers of unwanted pets overcrowding sheltersYou can do your part to help reduce animal suffering while safeguarding your pet’s long term health. 

About Spay and Neuter Pet Surgery 

Our veterinarian in Fairfax, CA understands that the thought of surgery or anesthesia induces anxiety for owners.  Rest assured, our facility is among the safest surgical facilities for pets in the area. We maintain the highest possible standards, putting our facility on par with human surgical centers. Every Fairfax veterinarian possesses superior skills in all veterinary medicine, including the latest surgical techniques and protocols. Our surgical suite is modern and up-to-date, and we are obsessive about maintaining a sterile environment at all times. We do not employ a “one-size-fits-all” anesthesia protocol.  Every pet receives an individualized anesthesia plan with medications and dosages selected for their unique size, age, temperament, and other medical issues if applicable.   After surgery, your pet will be moved to a quiet area to safely regain consciousness and mobility. They will receive analgesics and pain medications selected for their specific situation and their specific level of discomfort.  In short, your pet could not be in safer hands or a more secure place for their spay or neuter surgery.  And when you pick them up in the afternoon, you will receive one on one discharge instructions with the doctor, so you can be confident that you are receiving appropriate advice, and so that all of your questions can be answered by the doctor.  Additionally, our doctor will call to check in after surgery, and will be available to answer any questions that might come up while your pet is recovering and healing. 

Although a surgery for pets, our Fairfax veterinarian takes each case seriously and tailors the spay or neuter procedure to each pet as an individual. There is currently conflicting information in the scientific literature about the best time to spay or neuter your pet.  Depending on your pet’s breed and lifestyle, we can help you sort through the conflicting information to decide on the right time to schedule this important procedure to maximize the benefits and minimize risks, and to ensure that it is as easy on your pet as medically possible.
