Ask a Vet Archive

When it comes to your pet's health, there's no such thing as a dumb question. Search questions real clients have submitted to our popular Ask a Vet Q&A series, and then submit a question of your own.

  • If I take my pet in to get her spayed will her personality change?

    I recommend having your pet spayed due to the fact that it can reduce the risk of certain cancers, as well as help to keep the homeless pet population down by eliminating any chance of her becoming pregnant. 

    Whether or not it affects her behavior is hard to say for certain and is partially dependant on her age. Take your pet in for a veterinary exam and discuss your questions with the veterinarian prior to surgery.
