It can prevent unwanted litters and can prevent ovarian and testicular cancers. Our recommendations concerning spay and neuter surgeries vary based age and breed.
Preventative care is essential to your pet's health and wellness. Your pet should receive vaccines that will stimulate its immune system and provide protection against serious illnesses.
