Spay & Neuter Services

The veterinarians and staff at Godspeed Animal Care in Williamsburg, Virginia, recommend that every dog and cat be spayed or neutered. Not only does spaying or neutering prevent overpopulation and unwanted liters, but also it helps to reduce behavioral problems, the risk of cancer, and other health issues.

During your pet’s wellness exam, our veterinarian discusses with you the best time to have your animal spayed or neutered. You can make an appointment for the surgery at that visit.

For the surgery, your dog or cat receives a pre-surgical exam, pre-anesthetic blood work, intravenous (IV) catheter, and IV fluids. We follow American Animal Hospital Association standards, ensuring the best quality care for each and every pet.

Our highly trained staff then monitors your pet throughout the spaying or neutering procedure while keeping your animal comfortable with a warm water recirculating blanket. We also do our best to reduce any pain your puppy or kitten might have by providing pain management during and after the procedure.

After the procedure, we will contact you with an update on your pet and will schedule a pick-up appointment. During this appointment, the veterinarian will provide specific post-op instruction for your pet.

The best there is. Makes me wish I was a dog so I could get treated there!

Best Vet and Pet Resort in Hampton Roads. I live 45 minutes away and only take my dog here. They are always so friendly and definitely take care of your pet! I always feel like Butter is getting taken care of when I am gone. I highly recommend both Godspeed Animal Care and St. Francis Pet Resort!

I found out that my dog had a hot spot, and was able to be seen that day. They are very caring people, from the receptionist to the doctor!

Wonderful place! Crockett was there for doggy playcare. He was happy when I saw him at the end of the day. He came home ate dinner and went to bed! It was a good tiring day !! Thank you!

I always get excellent service from the employees at Godspeed Animal Care. Everyone is helpful and kind, and they treat all animals well. They will get answers to questions I have about my cat and his special diet. Thank you for being my cat's veterinary office.

Everyone was so very friendly and treated Ruffles and Wrinkles like little queens. They mean the world to us, and to see the service and treatment they received only confirmed that Godspeed Animal Care will be their permanent veterinarian service. Thanks to all!
