Information for Veterinarians
When is the last time you had fun doing spays? Pediatric spays are not only fun, but also safe, fast, easy and inexpensive. No estrus, no fat, no fragile tissue. Less bleeding, small incision, quick healing. And spays on adult cats don’t have to be drudgery: try Speed Spay! Better for the cat and easier for you.
For some veterinarians, spays and neuters do not offer the brain exercise of other procedures or complex medical disorders. The same is said about vaccinations. But we offer vaccines, because they save healthy animals from deadly diseases. Spay/neuter does exactly that. Spay/neuter prevents overpopulation, which kills over 25,000 healthy animals 365 days a year. In fact, spay/neuter may save more lives than any other single procedure that you perform. Mundane? Think again.
