Neutering Your Male Dog

The medical and social benefits of castrating your dog

  • reduces unacceptable sexual behaviour.
  • reduces occurrences of prostrate problems.
  • reduces incidence of anal tumours.
  • reduces the tendency to stray.
  • removes the risk of testicular tumours.
  • removes the risk of unwanted puppies.

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

Castration

Neutering of the male dog is carried out from six months of age. He will be clipped underneath and will have a small wound closed with a few sutures. These sutures will need removing after ten days. You will be invited back for a post-operative check after three days.

It is not unusual to see some swelling.

On collection of your pet you will be given full instructions on his aftercare.

We know there can be a tendency for some weight gain after surgery and for this reason we like to weigh your dog a month after his operation. By doing this we can detect any tendency to weight gain and advise you on nutritional control to prevent abnormal weight 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.
