Spay and Neuter
Spaying or neutering your pet is an important part of being a responsible pet owner.
If it's time to take this important step, doesn't your friend deserve the care of a compassionate practice with a gentle touch?
Dr. Julian Peckich in Marietta, GA, approaches this treatment with a combination of advanced technology and a genuine love of animals.
Why Spaying and Neutering Matters
Spaying is the removal of the uterus and ovaries, and neutering is the removal of the testicles. Sterilization surgery has a number of significant benefits, including:
Every pet deserves a loving home, but unwanted litters result in strays, overcrowded shelters, and euthanization. By spaying or neutering your pet, you play an important role in tempering the burden on animal shelters and the abundance of stray animals.
Spaying your dog or cat can prevent serious health issues such as testicular cancer, mammary cancer (fatal in 50% of dogs and 90% of cats), and uterine infections. We can help you take this important step toward giving your pet a longer, happier life.
Heat cycles can have an unwanted effect on your female cat or dog's behavior. Meanwhile, the breeding instinct will drive male cats and dogs to venture far from your home. This treatment can make your pet a more compatible companion and keep them safe at home.

When to Spay or Neuter Your Pet
The American Animal Hospital Association endorses spaying or neutering cats by the time they are five months old. Kittens who undergo sterilization at this age tend to recover very quickly.
The AAHA recommends that small male dogs (those under a 45-pound projected adult body weight) should be neutered at six months, while females of the same size should be sterilized at five to six months. They recommend neutering larger male dogs when they have finished growing (between nine and 15 months). A large-breed female dog should typically be spayed between five and 15 months, depending on your veterinarian's recommendation.

"I highly recommend them to everyone"
This place is awesome! I am new to the area, and I am so relieved I chose to go here. The vets and staff are very relaxed and casual. They did a great job with my dogs. One is almost 80 pounds and the other is hyper and loud, so it's never an easy trip for me. They helped me wrangle the demons the entire time and were so pleasant. They treated my dogs with great care and taught me a lot without being judgemental. Also, I found the price to be fair and they were conscious that some people may have a budget. Oh! And they got me in next day!!! Overall very happy, and I will be back!View on Google
Julian and his staff are the BEST!!! They are knowledgable and friendly. Oakley (my lab) loves visiting them; they always have treats for her :) Julian has a true love for animals, and always recommends the best treatment options with my dogs best interest at heart. I highly recommend them to everyone in the area looking for a solid vet.View on Google
