All surgery requires a full clinical examination and blood tests are recommended. Your pets will be carefully monitored during the procedure with devices that measure heart rate, breathing, blood pressure and oxygen saturation.
This is a simple low-risk procedure for the purposes of canine population control, medical health benefit, genetic-disease control and behavioural modification. There are many behavioural and medical advantages to castration:
Neutering involves a day in the clinic then 4-5 days of rest.
This is a more involved surgery but has many benefits. Speying before their first heat offers the best protection. Speying involves one day in the clinic then 2 weeks rest. We cannot spey dogs in heat and must wait until 6 weeks after the heat is finished. It is important to prevent weight gain after speying by feeding a neutered diet.
We provide follow up care and check wounds around 5 days after surgery.
