“To the staff of Otay Lakes Veterinary Clinic. Words cannot express enough of our deepest gratitude to your business and all the staff who were there to help our dog Katie…Thank you for your kindness to her and us.” – K.F.
One of the best reasons to spay or neuter your pet is to avoid adding to the problem of pet overpopulation. Every day in the United States, thousands more puppies and kittens are born than are human babies. The result is that there are not enough homes for all these pets. The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) estimates that between 6 and 8 million pets enter animal shelters each year. Of these pets, the HSUS believes that at least half — 3 to 4 million — are euthanized. Many of these animals are young and healthy.
There is nothing more important than providing comfort and safety for our surgery patients. All spay and neuter surgeries receive a pain control injection pre-op, and 5 days of Pain Medication following surgery. The sutures (stitches) are absorbable and placed below the skin surface so the pet cannot reach them and there is no additional visit for suture removal. We use SEVO Gas Anesthesia, the safest gas available. All patients receive an IV Catheter in case emergency treatment needs to be administered to safely recover the patient.
