Neutering, also known as orchiectomy, refers to the surgical removal of both testicles, rendering a dog or cat infertile. All neuters are performed under general anesthetic. Precautions such as pre-anethetic blood work and diligent intra-operative monitoring are taken to minimize anesthetic risks to our patients. We recommend neutering your puppy or kitten at 6 months of age.
Many benefits to neutering your dog exist:
By not allowing your companion to mate and produce offspring, you are contributing to the elimination of the pet overpopulation problem.
Decrease in aggression and roaming behaviour
Elimination of the risk of testicular cancer
Reduction in the incidence of prostate infection and enlargement
