Spay/neuter procedures promote a longer and healthier life for your pet. These are procedures that provide innumerable benefits! We highly recommend a spay or neuter procedure to reduce sexual instincts, unwanted behaviors, and the risk of infection and disease.
No two animals are alike, which is why each pet deserves a unique, clinical decision tailored to their age, size, breed, and lifestyle. Highly trained in spay and neuter procedures, the veterinary professionals at South Kendall Animal Hospital will provide a safe and comfortable procedure for your pet.

Please contact us immediately if you discover a mass on your pet, particularly if it appears to be rapidly growing or changing. Masses are commonly found in senior pets, but can appear at any age!
Masses can either be malignant or benign. If diagnosed as malignant, we will surgically remove the mass and recommend necessary treatment. If diagnosed as benign, we also encourage surgical removal to prevent the mass from becoming cancerous or spreading to other areas of the body.
There are additional benefits to having a benign mass removed. Movement may be restricted depending on the location of the tumor or growth. As the mass grows, your pet may have even greater difficulty moving and removal will become more challenging, particularly in areas such as the throat or legs.
