Neutering

Neutering your pet has many benefits. The procedure, which prevents male animals from reproducing, can help your dog or cat live a longer, healthier life. Neutering will not change your pets personality or make them fat or lazy.

By neutering your pet, you’re reducing or eliminating his risk for prostate and testicular cancer, perineal hernias, as well as sexually transmitted diseases. Neutering will also reduce or eliminate undesirable and embarrassing behaviour, including roaming, fighting, humping and spraying. In addition, neutering your pet will help control the dog and cat overpopulation problem, keeping more animals out of shelters.

Neutering, which involves removing the testicles, is a surgical procedure and does need to be performed with the pet under general anesthesia. We follow strict protocols and continually monitor your pets vital signs to help ensure his safety. Please see the description under PATIENT MONITORING & ANESTHETIC SAFETY MEASURES for more information on what we do to keep your pet safe.
