Increasing Your Pet’s Quality of Life with Surgery

Most, if not all, pets will require some form of surgery during their lifetime. At Coyne Veterinary Center, we offer surgeries to repair injuries, treat or eradicate disease, and provide a number of other health benefits to extend and improve their quality of life. Pet surgery can be stressful for our animal companions (and us), which is why we take extra steps to make every procedure we offer as safe and comfortable as possible. We’re happy to take the time to answer your questions and address any concerns you may have, so you’ll feel more at ease and confident that your loved one is in capable hands.

Why Spaying and Neutering is Important

Spaying and neutering are some of the most common surgical procedures performed on pets. Along with preventing pet overpopulation, spaying and neutering yields many health benefits, as well. We recommend having your pet spayed or neutered at approximately 6 months of age, though this can vary depending on their breed and size. Spaying and neutering helps reduce and/or prevent the following behaviors and conditions:


  • Going into heat
  • Spotting
  • Desire to roam
  • Uterine cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Pyometra


  • Aggression
  • Urinating/spraying
  • Desire to roam
  • Testicular cancer
  • Prostatitis 
  • Perianal adenoma
  • Benign prostatic hyperplasia

Pet Surgery in Portage and Crown PointWhat to Expect 

Prior to any surgical procedure, your veterinarian will perform a thorough physical examination of your pet, along with pre-anesthetic diagnostics to ensure they’re healthy enough to be anesthetized. This is also the ideal time to ask any questions you may have about the procedure and post-op care. Pet surgery can be a challenging experience for pets and their owners, but we’re always here to walk you through the process and provide a caring, listening ear.

With our advanced equipment and ultramodern surgical tools, we can assure you that your pet’s surgery will be performed with the utmost care, safety, and expertise. We welcome you to come in and see us any time during our regular hours for a consultation. We’ll be glad to help you in any way we can.
