Neutering Your Female Dog

The medical and social benefits of spaying your dog

  • prevents ovarian cysts.
  • prevents ovarian cancer.
  • prevents pyometra, a potentially life threatening disease of the uterus.
  • reduces the number of unwanted puppies.
  • reduces the incidence of mammary cancers.

All neutering operations are carried out on a day care basis. Your pet will be admitted to the surgery in the morning and will be able to go home in the afternoon.

Spaying

Neutering the female dog is carried out from six months of age, as long as she is not in season.

She will be clipped under her tummy and will have an incision there. The wound is closed both with internal and external sutures.

You will be invited back for a post-operative check after three days.

After ten days the external sutures will he removed; after which time she can exercise freely again.

On collection of your pet you will receive full instructions on her aftercare.

The uterus and ovaries arc removed and hence your dog will have no further seasons after the surgery. We know there can he a tendency for some weight gain after surgery and for this reason we like to weigh your dog a month after her operation. By doing this we can detect ant tendency to weight gain and advise you on nutritional control to prevent abnormal gain.

It is our policy to offer a pre-anaesthetic blood test to any animal having a general anaesthetic. This is carried out on the day of the operation and enables us to check that their liver and kidneys are in good health.
