Q. Where can I find a vet in TX that will perform canine tubal ligation?

A. Most vets will perform sterilization techniques through removal of the uterus or ovaries (hysterectomy and OVH) rather than tubal ligation as it can lower the chances of cancer and pyometra compared to if the uterus and ovaries are left in. It also stops the heat cycle and other hormones from surging. If you are looking for a specific ligation procedure, it may be best to contact a veterinary specialist or teaching hospital in your area instead as these are not as commonly performed.
