We recommend spaying and neutering pets around

once they have fully undergone their puppy or kitten vaccinations. The primary reason you should have your pet spayed or neutered early on is that female dogs and cats can begin their heat cycles as early as seven months and males can develop aggressive behaviors during puppyhood or kittenhood.
Spaying and neutering your pets come with a myriad of health and behavioral benefits that allow them to live longer, happier lives. Some of the benefits of spaying and neutering your pets include:
Here at AVH, we encourage all pet parents to spay and neuter their canine and feline friends to help control Arvada’s pet population and a healthier pet.
Like all surgical procedures performed at our facility, we will implement a thorough examination and evaluate your pet’s vaccination history first and foremost. This will involve designing an anesthesia plan customized to meet your pet’s needs. We will guide you through the process of caring for your pet pre-surgery and post-surgery
Laparoscopic Spays Our laparoscopic equipment is a system made by BioVision which allows us to use only a single port for Ovariohysterectomies or Ovariectomies. A very small 3/8 inch incision is all that is needed and your dog will be 65% less painful than had she been spayed with the traditional technique. Laparoscopic procedures are safer because the surgeon can completely visualize the entire abdominal cavity and can watch for any bleeding from the surgical site.
