Aftercare and Side Effects of Spay and Neutering

Spay and Neutering:

The decision to spay or neuter your pet can be quite nerve-wracking. Even though procedurally it is supposed to be quite simple and straightforward,  Many Mississauga animal hospital visitors find that spaying or neutering their pet can be an emotional and stressful decision to make. According to vets in Mississauga, although pet parents seem to be unsure and nervous about it, spaying or neutering is worth it. Before examining the benefits of spaying and neutering, many pet parents are confused between the two processes and are quite unsure of what to expect in either of them
Spaying and Neutering – what they mean
The term spaying implies the removal of a female dog’s reproductive organs. The term neutering implies to a similar process for a male, although neutering can be used for both genders informally.

The actual surgery
Now that you have decided to get your pet neutered or spayed, you may be left wondering what to expect on the day of surgery. Many emergency vets in Mississauga encounter pet parents getting paranoid on the day of surgery due to lack of knowledge about the operational procedures.

Here is how the process goes. First off, you need to drop your pet off at your local pet hospital in Mississauga. The procedure lasts for a few hours and your pet will be with you within a few hours. Post-procedural symptoms include grogginess and discomfort partly due to anesthesia which lasts for about a few hours. Most dogs act normally after a while. Your vet takes anesthesia monitoring very seriously. They will ensure that your dog’s heart and respiratory systems are functioning correctly all through the procedure. Your pet will be monitored for any health issues for a long time before handing them over to you after surgery.

Benefits of surgery

Population control

Neutering and spaying your dog prevents your pet from contributing to uncontrolled animal population.

Health benefits

According to the American Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), the surgery can safeguard your pet against certain kinds of reproductive cancers, reduce male dog’s urge to escape his leash to find a mate and even help in some behavioural issues.
The knowledge of what your pet is going through can help to care for your pet appropriately. While there may be some inherent risks associated with spaying or neutering especially when they are administered anesthesia, it is generally better to have a frank and detailed discussion with your vet to make sure that your pet gets all the due care and attendance in the pre and postoperative stages. Choose a reliable and trustworthy clinic like Truscott Animal Hospital so that you can have all your questions answered by their qualified and trustworthy veterinarians and have a stress free procedure performed on your pooch.

Took my 4 year old rescue (almost feral) cat Beatrice to the vet for the first time for an urgent urinary issue. They were so understanding and got right to the diagnosis. Surgery was done a few days later and she is doing so well. Follow ups have been so thorough.

It took me over a year before I can write this review without tearing up. And even as I write this I can't help but feel emotional. We lost our beloved pug, Joey Bravo, on September 10, 2021. He quickly deteriorated on his 10th year and during one of his check ups at Truscott Animal Hospital, he collapsed by the reception desk. Dr. Erini witnessed what happened and dropped everything she was doing to resuscitate my Joey. They were able to stabilize him but in the end, we had to make the heartbreaking decision to let him cross the rainbow bridge. I deeply appreciate Dr. Medhat rushing to the clinic to help with everything, including helping us make the difficult decision as objectively as possible without pressuring us.

Inspired by the kindness and dedication of Dr. Medhat and his entire staff, we've gone on to rescue 2 more dogs - Pepe and Coco, and adopt another pug in Joey's memory (Oscar).

Recently Dr. M and his team also helped us with a difficult leg surgery for Pepe and was able to save his leg which we thought would have to be amputated.

The service we received and continue to receive at Truscott Animal Hospital is beyond 5 stars. They truly have compassion for all animals and will never pressure their patients/owners to do any unnecessary tests. They treat all the animals under their care as if they are their own. Needless to say we highly recommend this clinic and it's quite obvious why they continue to be THE #1 and best veterinary clinic in Mississauga (and probably in the country!)!
