Newcastle Spay and Neuter

We provide spaying and neutering to cats, dogs, rabbits, and other small mammals during our weekday hours. We provide the best care possible at the lowest possible price. We also offer the option of using our advanced CO2 laser, as opposed to the scalpel blade, during the spay or neutering procedure. We ask that all patients be around 6 months of age or older.

All animals must be current on all vaccines and provide documentation that the vaccinations were given by a licensed veterinarian.

Drop-offs for spaying and neutering are between the hours of 7:30am and 9:30am Monday through Friday; food must be taken away by 10pm the night before the procedure. No appointment is needed for spaying or neutering. Please note that our doctors are not available until

You can print and fill out the spay/neuter consent form before coming in to speed up the check-in process. If you have any questions concerning the procedure please feel free to call or email.

Spaying

Spaying is a surgical procedure in which both ovaries and uterus are completely removed from your female pet. Also called an "ovariohysterectomy," the surgery is performed while your pet is under general anesthesia. There are many benefits to spaying your female companion. First, you will contribute to the prevention of the dog and cat overpopulation. Second, spaying will eliminate the sometimes 'messy' heat cycles that attract male dogs to your house from miles away. Third, you will help prevent diseases in your pet such as pyometra (infection in the uterus) and mammary cancer. Additionally, research has shown that pets that have been spayed live longer than pets that have not been spayed.

Neutering

Neutering refers to the surgical procedure in which both testicles are removed. There are many benefits to neutering your male companion. First, you will contribute to the prevention of the dog and cat overpopulation. Second, neutering can help eliminate undesirable and at times, embarrassing behavior in your male companion. Third, you will help prevent diseases in your pet such as prostate disease and testicular cancer.
