Dog Spaying and Neutering

Having your dog spayed or neutered prevents pregnancy and can help decrease the population of stray animals. Spayed and neutered dogs are also less likely to wander and get into dangerous situations.

What does neutering/spaying do to a dog?

Early neutering can prevent sexually dominant behaviour such as certain types of aggression, mounting and urine marking. Neutering can also decrease some prostate gland issues and eliminate testicular cancer.

Early spaying of your dog can prevent exposure to estrogen which will decrease the risk of mammary cancer. It will also prevent uterine infections in your dog.

Why is it important to neuter/spay my dog?

By spaying and neutering your dog you can improve their quality of life and allow them to live a happier, healthier and longer life.

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

The current practice is to spay and neuter your dog around 5 – 6 months of age. It is about this time that puberty starts in dogs. In some instances, especially with large breed dogs, delayed spay or neutering can be beneficial.

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

The cost of a spay or neuter will vary based on the age and size of your dog. Estimates will be provided after a physical exam is performed.
