This is the companion article to our Pet Talk Podcast episode about this issue. You can listen to that podcast episode by clicking here.
We sat with Dr. Matthew Wheaton, the owner and medical director of Alicia Pet Care Center to talk about spaying and neutering your pet and the importance of that. The origin of this article is the podcast episode that the text was extracted from. As you may have noticed by the episode title, this is going to be two parts and it is going to cover a lot of information. We were going to just do this as a single episode, but once we started getting into the meat and potatoes of it, we realized it was too much information and we didn't want to skimp out on it just to make a shorter episode. So we broke it down into two even somewhat longer episodes for our listeners to digest all of this information and all of these different sides of the importance of spaying and neutering your pet. Whether you have a cat or a dog, we discuss what it means, and what that process is here, in surgery with the doctors.
