Dental care is vital to the overall health of any pet. Dental disease can lead to health issues with the heart, liver, and kidneys and has the potential to seep into your pet’s bloodstream. In fact, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over three years of age suffer from some form of dental disease, making it the most common pet health issue among our pet population.
We offer spaying and neutering of cats and dogs at low cost to assist in the pet overpopulation crisis. All of our patients are under anesthesia, and the surgical instruments sterilized. The incision area is shaved, to minimize contamination, and scrubbed with two solutions to assist in the disinfection of the skin. Patients are given an injection of pain medication and antibiotics at the time of surgery. All dogs and female cats will also be sent home with three days worth of medication for post-surgical pain management. Recovery period is seven to ten days.
Cat Neuter: The testicles are removed through two small incisions. The incisions are so tiny that no sutures are needed. Recovery is generally uneventful and aftercare minimal
Cat Spay: A 1.0-1.5 inch incision will be made on your cat's abdomen. The uterus and the ovaries will both be removed. We use absorbable buried sutures, that you will not be able to see, to close the incision. We also use a small amount of green tattoo ink along the incision to permanently identify her as spayed. (For feral cats we offer ear cropping, we understand that you may not be able to catch these cats ever again, and you need to see if they have been done from a distance)
Feline Declawing: The front feet can be declawed. This consists of removing the first digit from each toe. This is to insure that the nail is unable to regrow. We apply pressure bandages to the declawed paws post-surgically to control any bleeding. We will keep your cat two nights. The paws will be tender, so restriction of exercise is essential for home care for one to two weeks after. We will provide one week's worth of Yesterday's News to provide a safe litter for your cat's tender paws. Clay litters tend to enter the incision causing infection and pain. A physical examination with one of our doctors is required before procedure can be scheduled.
Dog Neuter: a small incision will be made just in front of the scrotum. Both testicles will be removed through one incision to minimize aftercare. The incision will be closed with absorbable buried sutures. Healing time frame is 5-7 days.
Dog Spay: A small incision will be made on your dog's abdomen, the uterus and ovaries will both be removed. The incision will be closed with three layers of absorbable buried sutures. We also use a small amount of green tattoo ink along the incision to permanently identify her as spayed. It is important to restrict exercise for seven to ten days after surgery.

Spay And Neuter
Thanks for choosing to spay or neuter your pet! We are thrilled that you are interested in doing your part to control pet overpopulation. Due to our years of working with both the Brown County Humane Society, Clermont County Humane Society, Peppermint Pig Animal Rescue, and The Animal Rescue Fund - we have first hand knowledge of the overpopulation that results in countless and needless deaths of thousands of animals in our area every year! That means that while we love puppies and kittens, the responsible thing to do is to get you pet "fixed"

Every year, thousands and thousands of pets go missing. Not knowing where your pet is or how to bring them back can be a helpless, hopeless feeling. It's a tragedy that happens all too often. But there is a simple, safe, and effective way to ensure your pet's safety and retrieval should they ever become lost.

Obesity is a common problem among pets, as it can be easy to overfeed a cute dog or cat that knows how to beg. Being overweight is a serious problem for animals, and can cause real health problems. With proper diet and exercise, all pets should be able to meet their dietary needs and stay within a healthy weight range.
Pets with behavioral problems can often pose a frustrating challenge for pet owners. However, through behavioral consultations we can correct unwanted behaviors and enrich both your life and your pets' life. To learn more about how behavioral consultations can help your pet, please contact us today at (513) 734-7729.
