Spay and Neuter

Spaying and neutering is an important procedure for pets that are not going to be bred. The veterinary team at Merrimac Valley Animal Hospital recommends that all pets be spayed or neutered as the procedure is the most effective preventive for a wide range of health conditions to which our pets may be prone. For optimal benefits, we recommend that pets be spayed or neutered around 6 months of age, or after their vaccination panel is complete.
