Dog Spaying and Neutering

Spaying and neutering dogs is an important part of overall health and behaviour of the dog. It has multiple benefits, including preventing unwanted litters.

What does neutering/spaying do to a dog?

Neutering is when a male’s testicles are removed. Spaying is when a female’s ovaries and uterus are removed.

Why is it important to neuter/spay my dog?

It is important to neuter or spay your dog as it prevents many unwanted litters and can prevent pyometra and certain types of cancer. It also can help improve the behaviour of your pet.

How old should a dog be before they are neutered/spayed?

A dog should be spayed or neutered at roughly 6 months of age; however, it is important to consult with your veterinarian about when the appropriate age is for your dog. Some larger breeds may be spayed or neutered at a later age if you and your veterinarian decided to do so.

How much does it cost to neuter/spay a dog?
