Spaying and Neutering

Having your cat or dog spayed or neutered is an essential step in responsible pet care. Having your pet altered involves removing the sexual organs necessary for reproduction. It also helps to remove the desire and distractions driven by hormonal urges.

If done early enough, the procedure can help prevent aggression and some medical issues such as infections in the uterus like pyometra and testicular cancer. It also helps with keeping overpopulation at a minimum as shelters are almost always overflowing. At Princess Animal Hospital, we offer both laser and traditional spaying and neutering.

How old should a cat or dog be before they are neutered/spayed?

A consultation with one of our veterinarians will help determine the best time for your cat or dog to undergo their procedure. On average, we recommend that animals be spayed or neutered before they reach sexual maturity.

If you have any questions or would like more information about the procedure, please give us a call at 613.634.7123.

New Missed Appointment/Cancellation Policy

We know your time is valuable, and ours is too. Out of respect for our staff and our other clients, we require at least 48 hours’ notice if you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment. If you do not confirm your appointment with at least 48 hours notice it will be cancelled. As appointments are in high demand, this allows us the necessary time to rebook the appointment time for someone on our waiting list.

After two missed appointments or cancellations with insufficient notice, we will require pre-payment for any future appointments. This amount will be non-refundable 24 hours prior to the scheduled appointment.

Thank you in advance for your patience and kindness.

- Your dedicated team at Princess Animal Hospital
