Healthier Pets with Low-Cost Spay and Neuter Services
While you may be reluctant to spay/neuter your pet due to the cost, choosing not to spay/neuter could be more costly in the long run. Unplanned pregnancies can result in major expenses for pet owners. Furthermore, your pet may develop cancer later in life as a result of remaining intact. Allowing your pet to roam and breed unchecked can have harmful consequences. That’s why we provide low cost spay and neuter services to the Chicago Heights area. We want to help you, your pet, and all the other pets in your community enjoy happier, healthier lives.

How Soon Can My Pet Be Spayed/Neutered?
Deciding on the best time to spay/neuter your pet depends on their health and personal needs. Cats and smaller dogs can often be spayed and neutered at around 5-6 months, while large breed dogs including Great Danes and Mastiffs will need to wait a few months longer. A discussion with your veterinarian will help you choose the right time and answer any questions you have regarding safety, costs, and recovery.
