About Spay and Neuter
There are many reasons to spay or neuter your dog or cat, including preventing overpopulation and avoiding euthanization. Other benefits of having your pet spayed or neutered include:
- Males: Neutered male dogs and cats are less likely to engage in aggressive behavior. In addition, neutered pets are less likely to spray urine to mark their territory or roam from home in search of a mate.
- Females: Spayed females will not go into heat or have unplanned litters of puppies or kittens. Spaying also eliminates the chance of certain health problems, like ovarian cancer or uterine cancer.

How Spay and Neuter Procedures Work
In addition to promoting longer, healthier lifespans, spay and neuter procedures can save you money in the long run, especially when you factor in the cost of having a litter of puppies or kittens. Most cats and dogs can be spayed or neutered as young as six months old. During a visit to our McKinney, TX vet office, Dr. Finn will provide more information. The spay or neuter procedure is performed while your pet is asleep under general anesthesia. A small incision will be made, followed by removing the ovaries and uterus (females) or testicles (males) and then closing the incision with stitches. For both spay and neuter, the recovery period following surgery is around two weeks. We will provide home-based care instructions to help keep your pet as comfortable as possible during the healing process.

Pet Method Reviews
Dr. Finn and his team are the best! I had taken my dog to four other vets before all of which prescribed pain medication and said it wasn’t emergent when she was having trouble walking and unable to eat. I took my dog to Pet Method where Dr. Finn did blood work, X-rays and an ultrasound she was found to be in CKD and needed to be emergently admitted for aggressive treatment. My baby would have died if it wasn’t for him & his team
Dr. Finn and staff are amazing! Kaitlyn is great and Sara is awesome. Love Dr. Finn's fear free approach and appreciate the insight he provides. Highly recommend bringing your pet(s) in!
Dr.Finn was great with my dogs. One has severe anxiety and Dr.Finn was extremely patient and caring. 10/10 reccomend Pet Method.
My dogs absolutely love Pet Method. We used to take them to another pet hospital and they would always end up being terrified after the exam. For example, our older dog, Henry, would cower under the chairs after getting his shot or his nails clipped. At Pet Method, they took their time to make sure he was comfy and gave him lots of treats while also clipping his nails in a quick and neat manner. He ended up snoring afterwards in his exam room! We live in Garland and are gladly driving up to this place because we know that our pets would get the best treatment from Dr. Finn and his staffs. 10/10 would definitely recommend them to anyone who's looking for a vet who truly cares about their pets!

Spay and Neuter FAQs
What does it cost to spay or neuter a pet?
The cost of spaying or neutering a pet can vary depending on the animal's size and age. Our professionals at Pet Method can provide an accurate estimate after a physical examination. Rest assured, we offer competitive pricing for this essential surgery and easy payment plans to make budgeting easier. Ask about these options during an initial consultation.
How do you prepare for spaying or neutering surgery?
Dr. Finn recommends scheduling an appointment prior to spaying or neutering surgery. This is important to ensure your pet is healthy enough for anesthesia and the recovery process. We will make sure your pet is up-to-date on vaccinations and perform any necessary tests prior to surgery.
How do I care for my pet after spaying or neutering surgery?
It is important to keep your pet calm and relaxed after any kind of procedure. They will likely be groggy from the anesthesia and will need to be separated from other pets or disturbances in the home. Restrict their activity for a few weeks and make sure they have a comfortable place to sleep and heal. We can review all post-operative instructions — so you know what to expect.
