Many small pets such as rabbits, rats, chinchillas and guinea pigs can benefit from being spayed or neutered. Our spay and neuter clinic in the Kennedy Heights Animal & Bird Hospital in Surrey, BC, is experienced in performing these procedures for small animals.
Spaying refers to the surgical procedure performed to make pets incapable of reproduction. Spaying is also known as an ovariohysterectomy. To neuter refers to removal of the reproductive organs meaning the surgical removal of the male testicles.
Take the Opportunity to Have an Animal Microchip Inserted
While at the hospital, you can arrange for an ID microchip for your pet. A microchip with an individualized number is the size of a grain of rice and is inserted under the skin of your pet with no anesthetic necessary.
If your pet is ever lost, no worries – the ID number can be scanned and read at any animal home, shelter, clinic, or hospital, and you, the owner, contacted. All you have to do is supply contact information and the name of your pet, and his ID will be safely and easily registered.

Since these procedures will render small pets infertile, you will be doing your part in helping to resolve the problem of animal overpopulation. As veterinarians, we know all too well that the rapidly growing population of animals has been causing problems of neglect and abandonment.
The best age to spay or neuter your small pet depends on the type of small pet and the breed and can vary from 4 months old to 9 months old.
