Spay & Neuter In Oak Park, CA
Serving All of Oak Park, Thousand Oaks, Agoura Hills & More!
Depending on your pet’s breed and size, we may recommend spaying and neutering as young as six months. If you have a puppy or a kitten, make an appointment to bring them in so that we can work together to determine the best timing. This procedure is considered a "day surgery," as most pets are discharged the same day.
Allow us to spay or neuter your pet to help them live a longer, happier, and healthier life. For more information about spaying or neutering your pet in Oak Park, just call us at 818-532-7434 to schedule an appointment today!
Frequently Asked Questions
What Does it Mean to Spay or Neuter a Pet?
Spaying a female cat or dog is the process of removing the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and uterus. This procedure eliminates the discomfort of female pets having periods of heat. Once we eliminate these heat cycles, your pet will have zero bleeding, no related whimpering, and less anxious behavior. In addition to preventing pregnancy, spaying also prevents ovarian cancer.
Neutering a male cat or dog is the process of removing the testicles. In addition to eliminating the risk of your pet impregnating a female, this procedure makes males less aggressive, less anxious and has the added benefit of preventing testicular cancer.
What are the Benefits of Spaying and Neutering?
- Spaying removes heat Cycles which stops bleeding, nervous behavior, and whimpering

What Should I Expect After My Pet’s Spay or Neuter Surgery?
When you pick your pet up after surgery, they may still be a little "out of it." Grogginess is totally normal. We may prescribe medicine to help your pet with healing. Never give your pet human medications. If you have any concerns about medication or pain control, contact us right away.
Be sure to monitor eating and drinking. We will let you know when it’s safe to give food and water. You will have to limit exercise and play for a few days and keep an eye on the incision. We will give you full directions, and we are here if you need us. The great news is that your pet will be back to their regular selves in a very short time!
