NEUTERING

A neuter procedure is the surgical removal of a male dog or cat’s testicles. While it is a surgery requiring anesthesia, it is one of the most common surgeries performed within a veterinary hospital. It is also one of the quickest and easiest. Neuters are typically performed BEFORE a puppy or kitten goes through puberty (around 6 months of age). The following are important benefits of neutering your male puppy or kitten:

PUPPIES

  • Prevention of unwanted puppies
  • Decreases the risk of prostate issues by eliminating the production of the hormone that influences this gland. For example, enlargement of the prostate gland can interfere with defecation and lead to infection.
  • Prevents certain types of hernia
  • Prevents testicular and anal tumors
  • 90% of dogs no longer have an interest in roaming after being neutered.
  • 60% of dogs no longer display aggressive behavior towards other male dogs.
  • Shown to eliminate urine marking in 50% of dogs
  • Shown to eliminate inappropriate mounting behaviors in 70% of dogs
  • Many counties that require a dog license will offer a discounted fee if your dog is neutered.

KITTENS

  • Prevention of unwanted kittens
  • Reduce the incidence of objectionable behaviors – more than 90% will experience a reduction in these actions:
  • Roaming
  • Fighting
  • Urine marking

Testimonial

Care Animal Hospital is wonderful and this is by far the best place to take your pet.  I have been to several other veterinary hospitals and nothing compares to the friendliness of the staff and their compassion for taking care of animals.  The staff is extremely knowledgeable on pet healthcare.  The doctors are excellent and willing to answer all of your questions.  After visiting care, I wouldn’t take my pets anywhere else.
