April is Spay and Neuter Month

April Special: 10% Off Spay and Neuters

Spay NeuterPicOur goal with Spays and Neuters is twofold - to raise awareness of the need for spays and neuters as a way to reduce the number of abandoned animals. And to help people  to consider this option for their pets. Veterinarians and pet advocates all agree that this is the number one strategy for reducing the number of abandoned and lost pets.

Spay/Neuter Can Be a Healthier Option for your Pet

While it seems strange to consider, the many benefitsof these procedures can contribute to a longer and healthier life for your pet. Spaying and neutering greatly reduces the number of cats and dogs living in shelters and/or awaiting adoption/euthanasia when we cannot find homes for them.

Please consider a spay or neuter for your pet this month. We at Burnaby New Westminster Animal Hospital are contributing to this effort by discounting the procedure by 10% for the entire month of April. We hope this will effectively reduce the number of animals ending up in shelters.

Spay and neuter services

We provide spay and neuter services for cats and dog at all our hospital locations

We recommend spay or neuter procedures for kittens and puppies after 6 months of age. For most pets, this is a wise choice that improves their overall health and wellness. To help you understand our reasons for recommending spays and neuters, we put the chart below together. The chart looks at spaying and neutering from the perspective of the pet owner, the pet's quality of life and from the humane aspect of preventing the creation of unwanted pets. While it feels like a very emotional decision, there are many reasons why it is also a logical decision.

We also acknowledge that this is a personal decision and hope you will come talk to us with your questions. Together we will find the decision that works for you and your pet.
