Caring & Compassionate Care for Your Pets
Avenues Pet Clinic serves the people of Cheyenne and the surrounding Wyoming communities with the best veterinary care, including spaying and neutering of pets. Unless you are planning on breeding your fur baby, there truly is no reason to not have your pets undergo this procedure. Spaying and neutering your pets not only keeps the unwanted pet population down, but it also rids your pets of the mating instinct, which usually calms them and helps them to lead an overall happier life. If you are looking for the best veterinary services, including spay and neuter services, in Cheyenne, then call us today!
BENEFITS OF SPAY & NEUTERING AT AVENUES PET CLINIC IN CHEYENNE
- Females live a longer, healthier life
- Neutering males prevents testicular cancer and some prostate problems
- Spayed females won't go into heat and urinate in your home because of these hormones
- Males will be less likely to run away from home
- Males will be better behaved and less likely to mark their territory in your home
- And so much more!
Every year thousands of stray and unwanted animals are euthanized in shelters across the United States. Many of these deaths are the avoidable result of owners failing to spay and neuter their pets. Even if you keep a close watch on your pet, accidents happen, and those unexpected puppies and kittens often end up in shelters, continuing this cycle.
Spaying and neutering prevent accidental and unwanted pregnancy, and both procedures can have health benefits for both male and female dogs and cats. To learn more, or to make an appointment to discuss spaying or neutering your pet, call our veterinary clinic, Avenues Pet Clinic, in Cheyenne today!
Spaying (or ovariohysterectomy) involves removing the patient’s uterus and ovaries, rendering the animal incapable of reproduction. Your Avenues Pet Clinic veterinary team in Cheyenne recommends spaying your pet at 3-6 months ideally before their first heat cycle.
- Prevents unwanted pregnancies
- Eliminates the risk of ovarian and uterine tumors
- Removes the possibility of uterine infections (called pyometra)
What to expect after surgery:
Most animals recover quickly and without complication after a routine spay. After veterinary surgery you will be sent home with a few days of pain medication, and most animals are acting completely normally within a few days of surgery. Incision healing takes about 7 to 10 days so you will need to keep your pet’s activity somewhat restricted during this time.

Neutering of male dogs and cats involves the surgical removal of the testicles which makes them unable to impregnate females. Neutering is advised when your pet is 4-6 months old but can be performed on older animals as well.
- Will often calm the animal, reducing aggressive behavior and decreasing dominant tendencies
- Reduces roaming and spraying (territory marking in male cats)
- Minimizes the risk of testicular and prostate tumors and infections
