Spay and Neuter Services for Dogs and Cats in Waynesboro
We’re passionate about helping pets spend as many years as possible with their families. As part of your pet’s care, we recommend spaying or neutering for dogs and cats, which has the potential to lengthen their lifespan by a year or more. At Animal Hospital of Waynesboro, we hold that spay and neuter surgeries are essential for all pets. Along with the health benefits they provide, they also ensure fewer unexpected pregnancies and overcrowded animal shelters.

I trust Dr. Lorenze and his team with my precious pets. He's been a part of our family for years and we feel comfortable with our furbabies in his care. Very considerate, professional and knowledgeable.
The staff is always courteous, caring and friendly. They helped get us through one of our toughest days, losing 2 pets at once, and always treat us like family.
Staff are extremely friendly and always make me feel valued as a customer. They are always kind to my pets. The doctor took her time and patiently answered all of my questions. I appreciate this vet office so much! - DEBRA

Everything was very timely, which I know cannot always be guaranteed because of emergencies. We are always happy to wait as Baxter is eager to sniff every blade of grass on your campus! This time, though, every single aspect of our visit was efficient. As always, excellent communication from the doctor and the staff.
My cat is very afraid of strangers yet has no problem with vets and techs at Animal Hospital of Waynesboro. I don't know what their secret is but I applaud their care and treatment.
You have been there for me with 4 dogs, 2 deceased, and my present 2 little rascals. Your staff is wonderful. I have the utmost respect for and trust in Dr. Weiss. You have accommodated my special needs/cat allergy as well. Thank you so much.
The staff makes the transition well during this time of curbside only service. They have been doing their best during these trying times. Hats off to them for being loving, safe and kind towards our fur pets and us!
Otis expresses his thanks!

We continue to receive amazing service, especially the customer service in the pandemic. The customer service people are doing a super job, as are the vet techs. Thank you for continuing the quality care during covid. - TERI
Once again the WONDERFUL STAFF at AHW, have gone above and beyond to help me keep my old girl (17 years old) trucking along. I can’t thank them enough for their compassion and concern. - BLAINE
We love how wonderful Gracie is treated. Excellent customer service and outstanding care!- MOLLY
Tech, Emily, was very thorough in her phone questions. Tech, Kim, assured me that my grumpy cat had behaved herself during her exam! Dr. Reeder provided excellent care to my 19+ yr old "lady"! And CSR, Tammy, checked me out very quickly in the car!
Spaying and Neutering Makes Life Better for Dogs and Cats
What kind of benefits can you expect after your pet has been spayed or neutered?
- Spayed females cannot become pregnant or go into heat
- They are less at risk for breast cancer
- They will not be at risk for developing pyometra, a serious infection of the uterus
- Females are also less likely to go roaming in search of a mate
- Neutered males are less likely to become aggressive (due to lower testosterone levels), especially around females in heat
- They are less at risk for prostate problems
- They will not be at risk for testicular cancer
- Males are also less likely to spray (cats) or mark their territory (dogs) in the house with strong-smelling urine
- They are less likely to roam in search of a mate, which puts them at risk for getting attacked by another animal or getting hit by a car
Will My Pet Act Different?
Spaying and neutering have no effect on your pet’s intelligence or personality. They can, however, reduce or eliminate certain behaviors associated with hormones and natural instincts. A highly energetic pet is not likely to become mellow and docile after their surgery, and vice versa.
How Soon Should My Dog or Cat Be Spayed or Neutered?
Your pet’s health and development dictate when they should be spayed or neutered, which could be anywhere from 6 to 12 months old. While it is possible to spay and neuter dogs and cats that are well into adulthood, they are at a higher risk for surgical complications and diseases.
