Spay and Neuter in Westfield, IN

Spaying and neutering dogs and cats is an important way to keep them healthy. It’s also the most effective way to reduce stray/feral animal populations and crowding in animal shelters, leading to a healthier, happier community for everyone. At Coyne Veterinary Center in Westfield, we regularly perform spay and neuter surgeries to help pets and their families share a better life together. We want our patients to enjoy long, healthy lives, but we also want to prevent the many euthanasias that take place in shelters every year due to crowding, and increase the number of shelter pets who are able to find loving, lasting homes.

To schedule your pet’s spay or neuter procedure, call (317) 953-9944.
