Spays and neuters are routine surgical procedures that have a variety of benefits for your pets. At Taconic Veterinary Center, we generally recommend this procedure based on their age, breed, size, and gender, and once their puppy and kitten vaccinations are completed. Your pet’s health and safety are our primary concern, so you can rest assured that our team has the experience and expertise to perform these routine procedures to help your pet put their best paw forward.

How Spaying and Neutering Can Benefit Pets
To determine the best time to spay and neuter, we evaluate each pet based on their individual needs. For large dog breeds, we recommend waiting until 12 months of age to undergo this procedure. Spaying and neutering can help pets to live longer, healthier lives and help prevent or reduce the risk for a range of health or behavioral problems, including:
- Mounting or roaming
- Testicular cancer
- Prostate issues (reduced risk)
- Discomfort of heat cycles
- Ovarian and uterine cancers
This procedure can also help reduce the homeless pet population and relieve the pressure on local animal shelters and rescues. In addition, it can help save animals from being euthanized due to lack of space.
