The health benefits to neutering are significant. Neutering removes the risk of many cancers and drastically reduces the risks of others.
Older female dogs who have not been neutered are a risk of a potentially fatal condition called pyometra, which is an infection of the womb.
Neutering may help with behavioural problems and can reduce aggression, reduce possessiveness over toys and food, reduce territorial behaviour towards visitors and reduce the tendency to roam in search of a mate.
When your dog is neutered at Vets4Pets, you would normally drop them off to us in the morning of the operation and pick them up the same afternoon. It is important not to give your dog any breakfast on the day of their neutering but they can be given access to water.
If you have any questions at all, you can speak to a vet or nurse at your local practice about neutering and they will be happy to answer any other questions you may have.
