Book your dog neutering appointment with Vet4life in Middlesex
Elective neutering of dogs (castration) is one of the most common veterinary procedures performed.
Castration is relatively simple procedure carried out on a day patient basis so your dog can go home the same day. Whilst the recovery time varies between individuals, usually animals are bright and well the day after surgery and can return to normal exercise within 7-10 days.
Castration can be performed as young as six months where deemed suitable. Ideally your dog would be fully mature before the surgery is performed and this may be up to 2 years in large breed dogs. Some of the advantages to neutering your dog include:
- Reducing the risk of your dog straying after females in season
- Castration prevents unwanted matings/litters
- Castration can reduce or even stop hypersexual behaviour, such as mounting and urine scent-making. Some uncastered males can develop aggressive behaviours towards other males. Castration may prevent or reduce this behaviour.
It’s important to remember that every pet is different and therefore the advice we give about dog neutering can vary. If you’re considering whether or not to neuter your dog, we are here to help you make a fully informed decision.
