Early Spay and Neutering
We participate in Early Spay and Neutering (ESN) as advised by the AVMA. Studies have shown that anesthetizing 7 week old puppies is safe and uneventful. In addition, spays are reported to be easier and faster with shorter recovery periods and with less pain. Our veterinarian utilizes human grade anesthesia, warming beds for recovery, laser therapy and take home pain medications just as a matter of protocol. When they arrive back home on the same day, they have ravenous appetites and are ready to play. Stitches are internal so there is not even a need for them to wear the “collar of shame”! They never miss a step!
