The neutering of dogs has many advantages to both your dog and to you the owner. There are however some disadvantages and it is useful to be aware of these before proceeding with the operation. For many the advantages of neutering outweigh the disadvantages so the decision to neuter is taken.
It is also a sad truth that the number of puppies born every year far exceeds the number of good homes that can be found for them. As a result, many are destroyed and some unwanted ones are left abandoned to fend for themselves.
Castration of male dogs
Usually Performed at 6 months of age.
Spaying of bitches
Usually performed before the first season or 4 months after your pets last season, please feel free to contact the practice to make an appointment to discuss neutering if you are considering this.
The idea of “letting my bitch have just one litter” is to be discouraged, particularly if you can not be sure to find good home for all of them.
If you have any further questions please ask a nurse or make an appointment to see a vet.
