We follow vaccine recommendations from the American Animal Hospital Association and the American Academy of Feline Practitioners. This usually means 4 to 5 visits in their first year of life to ensure they are adequately protected from infectious diseases.
Barks + Bliss recommends cats be spayed or neutered between 4 and 6 months of age. For dogs, their surgery is typically recommended between 6 and 12 months of age prior to their first heat cycle, depending on the size and health status of the dog. The spay or neuter procedure is a day surgery, so your pet will go home with you the day of the procedure in most cases. We utilize the most up-to-date anesthesia and monitoring and ensure your pet will be comfortable after the procedure with pain medication to go home.
