Dog Spaying and Neutering

Spaying/neutering is the perfect way to prevent unwanted litters, which is the biggest cause of overpopulation in animal shelters all around the world. It also will help prevent many potential health issues for our dogs, such as prostate cancer and mammary tumours, and could potentially help with some behavioural problems.

What does neutering/spaying do to a dog?


Neutering means surgically removing the testicles from a male dog. Spaying means surgically removing the ovaries and uterus from a female dog.

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


We recommend getting your dog spayed at 6 months of age and neutered between 9 and 11 months of age, depending on size and breed. For larger breed male dogs it is recommended to wait until the dog is closer to 1 year of age. A veterinarian can give you a more exact recommended age for the surgery during a puppy exam or vaccine appointment.
