Dog Spaying and Neutering

Spaying and neutering are important procedures that will bring your dog many benefits throughout his or her life. Here at Mill Creek we do an ovariohysterectomy (removal of the uterus and both ovaries), commonly called spaying and for males it is a castration (removal of both testes), commonly called neutering.

What does neutering/spaying a dog do?

Neutering and spaying a dog will eliminate the chances of an unwanted litter. Your female puppy won’t go into heat. When they go into heat they advertise to the males by yowling and urinating more frequently, including in the house. Your male puppy will be less likely to roam away from home. He will also be less likely to mark his territory by spraying strong-smelling urine all over. Doing these procedures decreases undesirable behaviours, helps prevent mammary tumors, testicular cancer and more.

Why is it important to neuter/spaying my dog?

Spaying and neutering are important procedures that will bring your dog many benefits throughout his or her life. It will help decrease behavioural issues, less escaping out of yards in search of a partner, pregnancies and overpopulation, and certain types of cancer.

How old should a dog be before neutering/spaying?

Usually we recommend neutering/spaying at 5-6 months of age although it can be case dependant.

How much does it cost to neuter/spay a dog?

Please call the clinic to inquire about the prices of the surgeries.
