When and why should I spay my dog or cat?
Cedar Way Veterinary Clinic recommends spaying your dog or cat at 6 months of age. In addition to preventing accidental pregnancies, there are several health and behavioral benefits listed below;
Eliminate heat cycles – along with the bleeding and the unwanted male visitors
Eliminates unwanted pregnancies
Eliminates uterine and ovarian cancer
WHY LASER SURGERY?
LESS PAIN – Laser energy seals nerve endings as it moves through the tissue. Your pet feels less pain post-operatively.
LESS BLEEDING – The laser seals small blood vessels during surgery, which allows us to perform surgeries with extraordinary precision.
LESS SWELLING – Laser energy does not crush, tear or bruise because only a beam of intense light contacts the tissue.
When and why should I neuter my dog or cat?
Cedar Way Veterinary Clinic recommends neutering your dog or cat at 6 months of age. In addition to preventing accidental pregnancies, there are several health and behavioral benefits listed below;
Decreased urine marking
Decreased desire to roam
Decreased signs of aggression especially towards other dogs
Reduction of prostate disease, perianal tumors and perineal hernias in dogs Reduction in mounting behavior

When and why should I declaw my cat?
Having your cat declawed is a personal decision. Cedar Way Veterinary Clinic recommends performing the declaw procedure at the time of spaying or neutering (at 6 months of age), although it can be done at any age.
We would like to see all cats for spaying / neutering and declaw be at least 4 pounds in weight or 4 months old.
A declaw by itself can be done at any age.
Animals over 1 year of age tend to have longer recovery times and increased risk of complications.
