As fond of puppies or kittens as you may be, that doesn't mean you want to live in a house jam-packed with them. Nor would you want to leave your pets vulnerable to serious diseases and other health threats simply to preserve their fertility. Spay and neuter surgery is the smart, responsible choice, not only for pregnancy prevention but also as a preventative health measure. Your pet can receive these simple yet critical procedures from our Gary veterinarian at Glen Park Animal Hospital, Dr. Marcus Larson.
Most pet owners are understandably hesitant to subject their beloved companions to any form of surgery that isn't strictly necessary, delaying or foregoing sexual sterilization as an elective procedure. But while spay and neuter surgery may not be a matter of immediate life or death, it should still be considered necessary for a variety of reasons, including:
Our veterinarian in Gary will discuss your pet's upcoming surgery with you so you'll know what to expect from it and how to care for your pet afterward. While adult animals can be sterilized, pre-adults are more likely to receive the full health benefits of sterilization and less likely to experience surgical complications. Neuter surgeries generally take less time than spay surgeries, but either procedure can often be completed in a matter of minutes. Once the anesthesia wears off, you can take your pet home that same day. Our veterinarian in Gary will provide you with post-operative instructions on checking the surgery site, limiting your pet's activities and other helpful recovery tips.
Our vet in Gary IN wants to help your pet live a long and happy life. Call 219-980-4944 to schedule spay and neuter surgery today!

I have been bringing all of my dogs to Glen Park Animal Hospital for the past 20 years and have found their service to be excellent! I am a nurse and have found that the care, competency and compassion that the entire staff gives to the animals is as good as (and in some instances even better than) the "human doctors/hospitals"!! Dr. Larson explains everything and does good follow-up with my "fur-babies". You can tell that the entire staff loves their job!
