Spay And Neuter

Dog's Portrait

Dogs

The terms “spay” and “neuter” refer to the removal of the ovaries and the uterus or testes, respectively. Spaying and neutering are both referred to as neutering, but the latter is more commonly known as castration—the removal of the ovaries and uterus. You may spay or neuter pets of all ages, but we recommend doing so between 4 and 6 months of age. A spayed or neutered pet has a number of health benefits.

 

Neutering male dogs can help prevent testicular cancers, benign prostatic hyperplasias, and some prostatic cysts in older dogs that have not been neutered. Neutering also prevents or reduces the desire to roam in search of a mate, which can lead to dogfight wounds (which can be serious), being struck by a car, other injuries, and getting lost. 

 

Medical procedures to neuter or spay pets are performed frequently at our clinic. Despite the fact that there is always some danger, serious issues are infrequent. Most pets are up and about the next day with some discomfort for a few days following the procedure. Analgesics are available to ease the postoperative recovery period.

Spay - (ovariohysterectomy) - surgical removal of ovaries and uterus of a female.  Neutering male cats prevent the development of the very strong tomcat urine smell, and reduces urine spraying and fighting (which commonly causes abscess formation).
