We highly recommend neutering dogs and cats. The ideal age for neutering is 4-6 months old. The younger your pet is neutered, the more benefits are realized.

Advantages of Neutering:

  • Reduces the risk of testicular cancer (which is the 2nd most common cancer in intact dogs) and prostate cancer and prostatitis

  • Reduces the risk of hormone-related diseases such as perianal adenoma

  • Removal of sexual urges, which usually decreases roaming behaviors. In addition, less roaming means less auto accidents and less contact with other animals, therefore less likely to be in fights.

  • Decreases or eliminates risk of spraying or marking.

  • Reduces aggressive behavior, including dog bites.

  • Reduces number of unwanted, and subsequently homeless, cats/kittens/dogs/puppies.

  • Helps dogs and cats live longer, healthier lives.

Some indications for neutering

In some cases, neutering is performed to treat testicular tumors and some prostate gland conditions. It is also used to control hormonal (testosterone) dependent diseases such as anal adenomas.

Neutering may also be used in an attempt to treat certain forms of aggression.

Myths About Neutering

  • My pet will become fat, lazy, and useless as a guardian. MYTH

    • Obesity is probably the most commonly quoted disadvantage of neutering. Overfeeding and not exercising enough are the major causes why pets are overweight. By controlling your pet's diet and caloric intake, you can prevent obesity in neutered or intact males.

  • My pet's personality will change. MYTH

    • Neutering doesn't cause a change in personality, guarding instincts, intelligence, playfulness and affection.

    • If at all, since your pet will not have urges looking for a mate, then he or she becomes more bonded with you.

What are the risks associated with the surgery?

Neutering is considered a major operation and requires general anesthesia. Surgeries and general anesthesia come with risks to the pet. It is highly recommended that a pre-surgical blood test be done to screen for any disorders and illnesses that your pet may not be exhibiting. This, together with modern anesthetics and monitoring equipment, makes the risk of a complication generally very low.

What happens when my pet undergoes this procedure?

A physical examination will be done by the veterinarian and pre-anesthetic blood tests will usually be performed. If everything is acceptable, your pet will then be anesthetized and surgery proceeds. In cases where results of the screening test are unacceptably beyond normal limits, additional tests maybe required or your pet's condition is addressed before going through with any surgery.

Most pets will have an intravenous catheter placed to administer the anesthetic and to provide fluid therapy during the surgery. After your pet is anesthetized, a breathing tube will be placed in his trachea. This will deliver oxygen and the gas anesthetic, isoflurane, directly into the lungs. A small incision is made in front of the scrotum and after minimal dissection, the testicles are excised and removed. Many veterinarians use absorbable internal sutures so that you do not have to return your dog to the hospital to have them removed.

What precautions should I take after my pet's surgery?

Rest and restriction of activity are the primary post-operative care you should provide. Most dogs can resume normal activity five to ten days after surgery. Until then, leash walks, no swimming, bathing, running or climbing stairs and lots of rest are the rule.
