For general Spay/Neuter Clinic questions, email Appointments are not made via email.

Spaying or neutering your pet could very well be one of the most important choices you end up making as an animal owner. Aside from the health benefits of spaying or neutering your pet, there is an estimated 6-8 million homeless animals entering animal shelters every year in the U.S. alone.

Tragically, only half of these animals may find a home through adoption while the other half may end up being euthanized. Being proactive and spaying or neutering your animal can have a tremendous effect on the homeless animal population going forward, and can lead the way to less animals being euthanized on an annual basis.

Spaying or neutering your animal is the only permanent, 100%-effective method of birth control for dogs and cats.

Dog Information

Your dog has been properly fitted with an Elizabethan collar. This collar must be kept on for seven to ten days after surgery. Your pet can eat, drink, sleep and walk comfortably while wearing the collar. This collar ensures your pet cannot lick or chew at its surgical site. Damage to the site or infection of the skin around it can result from licking. If your pet removes their sutures, they will need to return for anesthesia, surgical repair, and medications at an additional fee to you.

Dogs must be leash-walked when outside for the next seven to ten days. Do not allow them to jump on/off furniture, run up and down stairs, or otherwise get too excited because this can cause complications leading to additional medications and treatment. It is very important that all exercise and play-time is limited. Minor swelling, such as a hematoma or seroma (non-painful swelling near the incision or in the scrotum), redness, and/or bruising can be normal and resolve without treatment, especially with mature or active animals.

Your dog's sutures will dissolve on their own and do not need to be removed. They can take up to four months to fall out, but can be removed after ten days if your pet is bothering the incision area. Be sure to check the incision area for redness, swelling, or drainage. Call HSAC at 609-348-8076 if you notice anything of concern.

Cat Information

Cats must be kept indoors for seven to ten days after surgery. Elizabethan collars are not typically used with cats; however, they may be purchased at the owner's request if the cat is chewing or licking at its incision. Try to discourage jumping and climbing. Female cats have sutures which will dissolve on their own and male cats do not have sutures. It is recommended that you use either pellet cat litter or place shredded paper over your existing cat litter to prevent the litter from sticking to your pet's incision for the first week. Check the incision area daily for swelling, redness, or drainage. Call HSAC at 609-348-8076 if you notice anything of concern.

If your pet received a Distemper, Feline Leukemia, or Lyme vaccine, they may need booster vaccines. These are generally needed three weeks after the initial vaccine. These can be done by our Veterinary Services department Monday through Friday by appointment by calling 609-348-8076, in our walk-in wellness clinic Saturdays from 9am to 12pm, or at your regular veterinarian. The Humane Society of Atlantic County operates a full-service veterinary hospital that is open to everyone.

If you have any concerns, please call our Veterinary Services department at 609-348-8076. We will be happy to assist you in any way.
