In female dogs and cats spaying eliminates the chances of
unwanted pregnancies and infection and cancer of the uterus
and also reduces the chances of mammary cancer.
In male pets neutering eliminates the chances of cancer of
testicles and reduces the possibilities of prostate cancer,
and also lessens the possibilities of fight injuries as a
result of roaming behavior.
We recommend neutering and spaying at the age of 5-6 months.
15 years ago the declawing a cat was considered rather
cruel. Veterinarians agreed reluctantly to declaw a cat,
only when it was absolutely necessary. Now a days
Vets are requested much more frequently to declaw a cat. The
results have been gratifying and we have no reluctance to
declaw. In fact in most situations we highly recommend it.
The procedure is usually done at young age, however we have
declawed as old as 12 years without any evident
Ideally, we suggest doing it at the time of spaying or
neutering (5-6 months of age), however if the kitten is
extremely destructive and his activity can not be curbed to
scratching post, or his behavior modified, we will perform
the procedure at 3 months of age. Generally, only the nails
of the front feet are removed. However in rare cases we have
found it necessary to remove all four.
addition to dogs and cats we deal with other exotic pets
like Rabbits, Ferrets, Hamsters, Guinea pigs etc.
