Schedule Your Pet's Spay and Neuter Surgery at the
Animal Wellness Center
Pet overpopulation is a very serious problem in this and many countries. The effects of pet overpopulation, ranging from starvation to lives needlessly lost in shelters, are heartbreaking. In addition to this, going into heat is uncomfortable and frustrating for your pet. Dr. Tejinder Sodhi and Dr. Rupali Sodhi are veterinarians at the Animal Wellness Center in Washington and they perform spay and neuter surgeries as part of the many pet services offered there.
The Importance of This Procedure
If your pet spends time outdoors, or if there is any chance they could get outside, the odds are high that a pregnancy will result. Keeping the pet population down to a number that can be cared for in loving forever homes will take work, and it cannot be accomplished unless pet owners commit to pet birth control. Preventing new litters of animals and encouraging responsible, loving owners to rescue pets from shelters goes a long way in solving this problem.
Spay and neuter surgeries are safe for the animal and do not affect playfulness or personality, though you may notice a lack of territorial spraying behavior. Dr. Tejinder Sodhi and Dr. Rupali Sodhi have years of experience with this invasive but very safe procedure, and they will go over the process with you beforehand. Veterinarians and staff at the Animal Wellness Center want you to feel comfortable placing your pet’s safety in our hands. With that in mind, we created a waiting room to put pets and their parents at ease.
Your pet needs to continue healing after surgery, and our veterinarians and staff will fill you in on how best to care for them. Pets need to be kept calm and quiet post-surgery so the incision heals, and they are also likely to be drowsy and disoriented from being sedated. Your veterinarian will be happy to provide recommendations on ways to best set your pet up for a healthy recovery after their surgery.
