We know that spaying or neutering your pet is an important decision to make as a pet owner. By spaying your female or neutering your male pet, you can positively improve your pet’s health and longevity, and you can be an important part of the solution to help end the homeless animal population in our country.
Dr. Patton worked for a number of years at a high-volume, spay-neuter clinic in Los Angeles, one of the only clinics in the nation of its kind pioneering the early-age, spay-neuter technique. She has performed thousands of these surgeries with exceptional results. She has applied what she has learned to the spay-neuter procedures here at Campus Commons. We do a number of extra things before, during and after each procedure to make sure our surgeries are as safe and painless as possible.
First, blood work is done beforehand to be sure your pet is ready for such a procedure. Next, we apply cold-laser therapy before the spay or neuter procedure, to ensure a calm experience for your pet and to enhance healing afterwards. We use a tailor-made pain protocol during the actual procedure, and our anesthetic gas is the safest on the market. Many other medical “extras” are taken, such as using a heated-water blanket and administering intravenous (IV) fluids during the procedure. Finally, once the spay or neuter is complete, one of our vet techs will sit with your pet until he or she is fully awake to monitor recovery.
