Spay/Neuter Your Guinea Pig


Spaying your female guinea pig through an ovariectomy, which is the surgical removal of the ovaries, can help prevent health issues such as uterine infections and cystic ovarian disease. Cystic ovarian disease is a condition where cysts form on the ovaries, which can cause pain and discomfort for your guinea pig. Spaying also eliminates the risk of ovarian cancer, which is a common health issue in unspayed female guinea pigs. At Priest Lake Vet, our experienced veterinarians, including Dr. Kopp, are knowledgeable in performing ovariectomy procedures for guinea pigs. We use sterile techniques and advanced equipment to minimize the risk of complications during the surgery. After the procedure, we will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for your guinea pig during their recovery period.

Neutering your male guinea pig can also provide several health benefits, including reducing the risk of testicular cancer and preventing unwanted behaviors such as aggression and spraying. Our veterinarians can perform the procedure safely and efficiently, and we will provide you with pre- and post-operative care instructions to ensure that your guinea pig has a smooth recovery.

If you are considering spaying or neutering your guinea pig, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced veterinarians, including Dr. Kopp. We can discuss the benefits of the procedure, answer any questions you may have, and help you make the best decision for your pet's health and well-being.
