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.

I'm so glad I found this clinic, we had a great experience here. We needed certificates for travelling with our cats, and they were very helpful with every detail. The staff and doctors are kind and understanding, and they were so careful and lovely with our cats. Also, prices are fair.

MG Gamil August 2023

My puppy Lillie was very very sick, I called 12 emergency vet hospitals between Toronto downtown (where we live) all the way to missesauga, no one would give me a same day appointment, no matter how much I explained that my dog was bleeding out and nearly dying. I called Truscott hospital and the soonest appointment they had opened was two days later, when I explained my dog situation, they told me to bring her on spot and made space for her due to her condition. Once we got there EVERYONE was amazing starting from the reception people all the way to the junior and senior doctors. Though they had to insert her in the middle of thief very busy schedule, They still took very good care of her, and made the time to talk to me and explain everything. Unlike other places money was the last thing they spoke about and they were very flexible and explain to me how we can save my dog which they did at the end.. it’s not a surprise that they are rated 4.9 out of 5, this is the most humane hospital and they truly love and care about animals. Very very very highly recommend. In three days, my puppy started again, chasing squirrels and pigeons in the Park, and is now back to her normal self as before..

I’m glad I had the money to cover the needed fees, but I imagine that, even if I didn’t, they would have still taken care of her and allowed me to pay over a couple of weeks, I’m just assuming that, because how amazing they were and how human they were, but I don’t know if that’s a thing.

Antonelle Sillius August 2023

My friend has been going to Truscott animal hospital with their Dog for a very long time and recommended that I take my dog there. So we drove from Oshawa to see Med and honestly it was so worth the drive! I felt so comfortable there with my dog and I felt that he was very informative and took the time to answer my questions and fully explain things to me. His prices are fair and I loved that he was very understanding of my circumstances where as I felt like other vets in my area would judge me and would rush me in and out, would try to get me to pay for more than I needed and would be over priced and make me feel guilty if I didnt. But not Med he was was very cheerful and kind and put my mind at ease and only did what was necessary for my dog at the time and didn’t make me feel pressured in any way. I would highly recommend Truscott Animal Hospital!
