Spay and Neuter
Most pet owners know it’s important to spay or neuter their pet. Not only does this simple surgical procedure help your dog or cat live a long and healthy life, but it also helps reduce pet overpopulation and the subsequent burden on animal shelters.
If you are looking to spay or neuter your pet in, Mebane Pet Clinic performs high-quality spay and neuter surgeries and offers some affordable options such as the PEDIATRIC SPAY AND NEUTER PROGRAM .
- Spaying a female dog or cat involves the surgical removal of the animal’s ovaries and uterus (also known as an ovariohysterectomy). Apart from the prevention of unwanted pregnancy, spaying your female pet can also reduce the risk of ovarian, uterine and mammary (breast) cancer. It also prevents pyometra, a life-threatening uterine infection that can occur after any heat cycle. Spaying will even limit the occurrence of undesirable sexual behaviors, including the frequent pacing and constant crying of a female cat in heat and the overall messiness associated with a female dog’s heat cycle.
- Neutering a male dog or cat entails the surgical removal of the animal’s testicles. This procedure prevents testicular cancer, prostate infections, and benign prostatic hyperplasia. Neutering also limits certain undesirable sexual behaviors in male cats and dogs, such as urine marking, humping, male aggression and the urge to roam.
Both spay and neuter procedures can be performed as early as 8 weeks of age. The American Humane Society is a strong proponent of pediatric spay and neuter procedures, namely because they often result in faster surgeries with fewer complications and less overall discomfort for your pet.

The experienced veterinary staff at Mebane Pet Clinic tailors each spay and neuter procedure to the individual pet. Each pet receives the highest quality anesthetics, Ethicon suture material and pain medications, ECG monitoring, pulse oximetry, respiration and blood pressure measurements. Pets are individually, continuously monitored by a devoted veterinarian and veterinary assistant during their stay.
