Spay and Neuter

At Village at Main, we are proud to offer low cost spaying and neutering options through the Oregon Spay and Neuter Fund program. For pricing information, please see OSNF's coupon below:


*All animals 16 weeks of age and older, must have proof of a current Rabies vaccine. If no proof of vaccination is provided, vaccination is required while they're here for their surgery. 

**If a pet has live fleas while here for surgery, they will be treated in hospital at the owner's expense.

 

With statistics indicating that nearly 4 million pets in the United States are put down annually, we believe spaying and neutering animals is a productive initiative. In providing these services, we hope to prolong pets’ lives and help the community in preventing pet overpopulation.

Choosing to spay or neuter your new pet is one of the most responsible decisions you can make as a pet owner. Spaying and neutering pets is estimated to add years to your pet’s life in decreasing or eliminating their chances of getting certain cancers; it also helps decrease the amount of animals in shelters and the number of euthanized pets each year.  You can fill out the surgery spay/neuter consent form prior to your scheduled appointment, then bring it in when you drop off your pet for surgery.  

Reasons to spay or neuter your pet:

  • Decrease aggressive behaviors in male pets. 
  • Decrease desire for pets to roam and find mates.
  • Decrease pet overpopulation and pet euthanasia. 
  • Decrease risk of mammary gland tumors. 
  • Eliminate heat cycles, bleeding, and yelling for a mate.
  • Eliminate or reduce marking and spraying. 
  • Reduce risk of ovarian and uterine cancers. 
  • Reduce risk of prostate cancer and testicular cancer.

What does spaying or neutering involve?

Both spaying and neutering are surgical procedures that prevent an animal from reproducing. Spaying and neutering are typically recommended for pets that are at least 6 months old and are not going to be used for breeding. Spaying is performed on female animals and involves surgically removing the uterus and ovaries to prevent pregnancy. Neutering is implemented on male animals and encompasses removing the testicles to eliminate fertility. While each of these surgeries sound involved, they can usually be completed within a few hours and do not require an overnight hospital stay.

Your pet may experience increased discomfort in the days following surgery. Depending on your pet’s surgery, pain medication can be prescribed. These tips should be followed to ease your pet’s recovery: 

  1. Do not allow your pet to run or jump for the next few days.
  2. Examine the incision daily to ensure proper healing.
  3. When you bring your pet home, limit food and water to small amounts at a time. Normal diet may resume the next morning. 
  4. Keep your pet confined from others, and allow them to have a quiet resting place.
  5. Prevent your pet from licking the surgical site by keeping close watch or by using an Elizabethan collar. 
  6. Wait at least 14 days after surgery to bathe your pet. If your pet’s incision has opened or if you notice excessive swelling, redness, or discharge, contact our office immediately.
  7. If you notice any loss of appetite, diarrhea, or vomiting, please call the clinic. 

If you have further questions about the spay and neuter procedures or would like to schedule the surgery for your pet, contact our office at your convenience.

Testimonials

We took our 5 month old puppy in to get neutered today and had a great experience. They educate you on expenses without making you feel guilty if you decide against extra options. We were able to pick him up 5 hours after dropping him off which was also amazing. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a vet.

Dr. Genova has been my 4 legged daughter's doctor for her whole life (10 years). He is very personable, informative and kind. I seriously cannot say enough positive things about him.. Why else would I trust him to take care of my baby girl?

The rest of the staff is also very kind. Most of them have changed throughout the years but one thing that hasn't is that you can immediately tell how much they all love animals.

This is definitely one of this places that I wish I could give more than 5 stars to.

We had our first experience at Village at Main Veterinary Hospital today and I couldn't wait to write a review because of how pleased I was with the entire staff and environment. I arrived way early for my appointment but they took me anyway since it was open with no problem at all. As soon as we walked in the door my puppy and I were greeted with smiles and even staff that didn't run the counter came out and greeted and loved on my puppy as well which really put her at ease. Every staff member acknowledged our presence at some point. We were taken back to an exam room and we saw Dr. Tran who was warm and loving toward my puppy, she really took her time and you could easily see that she loves what she does. Dr. Tran covered all of my questions I had planned to ask as well as asked if I had any others. I would highly recommend this clinic to anybody who has had a bad experience at another clinic because it will totally make up for it as it did in our case. Thank you so much again for making us feel right at home and loving what you guys do, I will continue to drive 30 minutes just to have my pooch continue to see you guys :)
