How old does my pet have to be before he or she can be “fixed”?

Generally speaking, 6 months of age is usually around the time when we would recommend spaying or neutering your pets. Most female dogs and cats will tend to go into their first heat cycle around this time. Our goal is to spay them before this happens to decrease the risk of them developing mammary cancer in the future and to control the occurrence of unwanted puppies and kittens!
