Valley Center Vet Clinic

Compassionate Pet Care

Top Rated Local® Veterinarian


By spaying or neutering your pet, you help control the pet homeless crisis, which results in the unnecessary death of otherwise healthy dogs and cats simply because there are not enough homes to go around. But if guilt isn’t enough to sway you, there are plenty of other valid reasons to spay or neuter your pet at a Valley Center vet clinic.

Having your female dog or cat spayed will help it live a longer and healthier life. Spaying helps prevent breast tumors and uterine infections. Breast tumors are cancerous in about half of dogs and up to 90 percent of cats. To best protect from these conditions, it is best you have your pet spayed before her first heat.

Speaking of heat, spaying your pet will prevent this cycle. Female cats will usually go into heat four to five days every three weeks during the breeding season. This means yowling and frequent urination, sometimes all over your home, something you best want to avoid.

An intact male dog will do just about anything to discover a mate, which includes finding any means necessary to escape your home. Once free from the confines of your home, he risks dangers like traffic and fights with other male dogs. Unneutered cats and dogs are far more likely to mark their territory with urine, often all over your house. In addition, neutered dogs are less likely to mount other dogs, people or inanimate objects.

Pet deaths each year are a needless tragedy. By spaying and neutering your pet, you can be a part of the solution. Contact your veterinarian today.


Please come right over in the event of a pet emergency. Our technicians will assess the nature of the emergency and determine if we can initiate treatment or transfer to a 24 hour medical facility. We can treat the vast majority of emergency cases on-site.

With advance notice, we can schedule convenient appointments at your home. We can take the hastle out of the experience by performing pet examinations on your property. This exceptional service was created to assist the elderly with large breed older dogs, owners with very scared cats.
