Pet Neutering

As a pet parent, opting for spaying or neutering for your puppy or kitten is a significant decision during their early years. We understand that the idea of surgery for your beloved furry companion can be scary. However, our team of extensively trained veterinarians excels in conducting this routine procedure with the utmost safety measures, creating a warm and inviting environment.

Benefit for boys

Neutering is a standard surgical procedure performed to remove the testicles of male dogs or cats, rendering them sterile. This removal also leads to a decrease in testosterone, effectively reducing undesirable behaviors and potential health issues.

Dogs can become capable of breeding as early as six months old, and cats as early as four months. Unneutered pets are more prone to aggression, engaging in fights, mounting furniture and people, marking territory indoors, and attempting to escape in search of a mate.

Neutering your pet can prevent many of these undesirable behaviors, especially if done early enough to disrupt the formation of these habits.

Benefit for girls

A spay is a routine and elective sterilization surgery for female pets, ensuring they won't produce litters of puppies or kittens. Beyond preventing reproduction, spaying also impacts your pet's hormone levels, particularly those related to their reproductive cycle, resulting in increased calmness and decreased susceptibility to certain health risks.

During a spay, both the ovaries and the uterus are removed. The removal of the uterus alone wouldn't yield the same health and behavioral benefits, necessitating addressing the hormonal influence of the ovaries as well.

Early spaying eliminates heat cycles, curtails undesirable behavior, and provides protection against various health issues later in life, including certain types of cancer and potentially fatal infections in the uterus.

This procedure can be conducted using minimally invasive keyhole surgery, substantially reducing discomfort and minimizing the recovery time.

Keyhole spay

Keyhole laparoscopic spaying in dogs offers the advantage of being a minimally invasive procedure, resulting in reduced discomfort, faster recovery times, and smaller incisions compared to traditional spaying methods. The keyhole surgery approach minimizes tissue trauma, contributing to a more comfortable postoperative experience for the dog. Traditional spaying involves a 2 to 5 cm incision, with a recovery period requiring the patient to avoid being off lead for 10 to 14 days. In contrast, keyhole surgery results in two smaller incisions, each less than 1 cm, and a shorter lead-restricted period of 3 days.

Is It too late to neuter or spay my pet?

There is no defined age that is considered "too late" for a spay/neuter. Nevertheless, as with humans, surgeries may pose greater challenges on the body as age advances. If your otherwise healthy senior pet sparks your interest in spaying, engage in a discussion with us. We will assist you in evaluating the advantages and disadvantages.
