Pet Spay and Neuter in Cumberland, RI

Our main objective at Diamond Hill Animal Clinic is to promote the long, happy, and healthy lives of pets. One way we achieve this is by advising our clients to get their pets spayed/neutered.

During surgeries, just like with every other treatment we provide, we’ll prioritise the safety of your pet. To understand more about spaying and neutering for cats and dogs, take into account the following:

Benefits of Spaying & Neutering

There are many benefits to having your pet spayed/neutered, including:

  • Marking, aggression, and other undesirable behaviours are decreased with neutering.
  • The risk of testicular cancer and prostate issues is reduced by neutering.
  • The number of unwanted animals put to death and the excess pet population are both decreased by spaying and neutering.
  • Spaying and neutering aids in the adoption of more animals from shelters.
  • Spaying and neutering pets lessens their wanderlust.

Weight Gain in Animals After Surgery

Some animals do put on weight after getting spayed or neutered because their metabolisms slow down. If your pet is experiencing this, we advise that you give them more opportunities to exercise. This can involve giving your dog more walks on a regular basis, giving your cat more vertical space, and giving both of you more engaging toys. Of course, you should also keep an eye on their calorie consumption and diet.
