Spay & Neuter

At Nichols Veterinary Care, we believe that spaying and neutering are essential components of responsible pet ownership. These procedures not only contribute to controlling the pet population but also offer various health and behavioral benefits for your beloved companion.

Why Choose Spay and Neuter:

  • Population Control: Spaying and neutering help control the pet population, preventing the birth of unwanted litters and reducing the number of animals in shelters.
  • Health Benefits: These procedures can significantly reduce the risk of certain reproductive-related cancers and infections, promoting a longer and healthier life for your pet.
  • Behavioral Improvement: Spaying and neutering can positively impact behavior by reducing aggression, territorial marking, and the desire to roam, leading to a more well-behaved and content pet.

When to Spay Or Neuter Your Pet 

We recommend spay and neutering  around six months for most dogs and cats. However, individual factors such as breed, size, and health status may influence the ideal timing, and our veterinarians will guide you in making the best decision for your pet.

Choosing to spay or neuter your pet is a responsible decision that not only benefits your furry friend but also contributes to the welfare of the broader pet community. Schedule a consultation at Nichols Veterinary Care in Monterey, CA, to discuss the best timing for spaying or neutering and ensure the continued health and happiness of your cherished companion. Your commitment to responsible pet ownership is our priority.
