Parrish Veterinary Clinic houses a state-of-the-art pet surgery suite, where our vet team can perform spay and neuter surgeries and many other soft-tissue procedures.

We take every precaution to maximize your pet’s safety, and ensure their comfort afterwards in recovery.
Increasing Your Pet’s Safety During Surgery
To make pet surgery as safe as possible at Parrish Veterinary Clinic, our team implements the following protocols:
A pre-anesthetic exam helps us evaluate your pet’s health and check for any problems.
In addition to the exam, we also run pre-anesthetic blood work to screen for illness and check liver and kidney function.
For pets age 7 and older, we recommend chest X-rays to evaluate the heart and lungs. As animals get older, they become more prone to heart and respiratory problems.
IV Catheter Placement
An IV catheter makes it easier and safer for our veterinary team to administer fluids and medication to our patients during surgery.
The Importance of Spay and Neuter Surgeries
Spay and neuter procedures are critical to the health of individual pets, but they also serve to benefit our community as a whole. Here’s how:
They Reduce Stray Animal Populations
Reducing dog and cat populations also reduces the number of strays, and decreases pressure on local animal shelters and rescues. This, in turn, helps to prevent many healthy animals from having to be euthanized, and ensure that more dogs and cats have loving homes.
They can Improve Your Pet’s Health and Lifespan
Spay and neuter surgeries can also decrease your pet’s risk for certain types of cancer and other health problems. Mammary gland tumors, ovarian tumors, and pyometra are some of the biggest disease risks for intact females. Intact males can be more at risk for testicular and prostate cancer. By reducing these risks, your pet could live longer.
