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.
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.

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 the 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.
