Spay for Dog and Cat

This is a process to remove a female dog or cat’s ovaries and uteruses. Spayed pets will reduce the risk of developing mammary cancer and uterine infection. When the procedure is done early in their life, it prevents pets from having unwanted litters that help control the pet population.

Unplanned pregnancies can be difficult for your pet to handle.. We recommend pet owners spay their animals unless they have the know-how and time to breed them responsibly.

Neuter for Dogs and Cats

It is a procedure that removes a male dog or cat’s testicles. It helps eliminate the possibility of testicular cancer and helps prevent prostate disease. The neutering process usually involves making an incision in front of the scrotum in the dog and sutures are placed under the skin to close the incision. In cats, there are 2 small incisions and usually no outside sutures.

Neutering can also reduce aggressive behaviour, which helps you take care of your pet better. Activities such as urine marking and roaming are also minimized.

After Spay or Neuter Surgery

Spaying and neutering surgeries are common procedures, and they won't cause any significant side effects. However, it is important that you take care of your pet during the recovery period. This will reduce their discomfort and help them recover. We recommend the following:

  • Keeping your pet away from other animals

  • Ensuring they don't exert themselves physically for up to two weeks

  • Ensuring the pet can't lick their incision site with the help of a cone

  • Inspecting the incision for any redness, swelling or discharge

  • Not bathing the pet for at least 10 days

  • Paying attention to any drastic changes in the pet's behaviour such as reduction of diet and lethargy

 

We will discuss considerations such as pain management, and provide you with information about medications. Please contact us if you'd like to learn more about our procedure for spay and neuter in East Danforth.

FAQs

The following are some commonly asked questions about our procedures for spaying and neutering in East Danforth:

Is Spaying and Neutering Risky?

Spaying and neutering are surgeries chosen by countless pet owners every day. They're common procedures that most veterinary clinics are equipped to perform. However, there is always risk involved when it comes to surgery and the use of general anesthesia. We will carry out a thorough inspection of your pet's health and medical history. We will check for any underlying issues to ensure that the pet has the ability to handle this surgery.  

When Should Your Dog Be Spayed or Neutered?

A female dog should be spayed before reaching sexual maturity, often between 6 and 7 months. As a pet owner, you can prevent breast cancer by spaying them now. On the other hand, male dogs can be neutered at around 6 to 12 months, soon after they achieve sexual maturity. Some data now indicates that later neutering may help joint issues, especially in larger dog breeds.

What Should I Know Before Taking My Pets for Spaying or Neutering Procedure?

Do not feed your pet after midnight before surgery.

Should We Wait to Spay Our Female Till After Her Heat?

No, female pets should be spayed before the first heat, typically at 5 to 6 months of age, to avoid pregnancy. Early spaying also helps to avoid later issues like breast tumours, uterine infections, and uterine cancers.

Will My Dog Experience Change After Surgey?

Many people are concerned that spay and neuter procedures will cause weight gain.  Although this is a valid concern, the decrease in hormones can slow down your dog’s metabolism. Dogs tend to require fewer calories after the procedure, which is why changing their diet and ensuring they exercise adequately is recommended.
