Neutering your Dog

Males (Dogs)

Nine Mile vets recommend castrating dogs from six months of age. By this stage both testicles should have descended into the scrotum. If they have not then your dog may be cryptorchid, which means that he has a retained testicle. It is especially important to remove the testicles in this case as they will be at greater risk of becoming cancerous.

Castration can also be useful in older dogs, for example in some cases of aggression or in diseases of the prostate. Please call your local Nine Mile Vet clinic to discuss your petís particular case and to make an appointment.

Females (Bitches)

Nine Mile vets recommend spaying bitches from six months of age, or three months after the end of their last season. With large breed dogs Nine Mile recommend delaying their spay until after they have had their first season. Spaying reduces the risk of unwanted pregnancies, mammary (breast) tumours (especially if carried out before one year of age) and pyometra, which is an infection of the uterus and potentially very serious. Spaying can also help in a number of other conditions Ė please call your local Nine Mile Vet clinic to talk to a vet about your petís case.

We are pleased to offer "keyhole" laprascopic neutering at our Nine Mile Hospital, please call for further information.

Our Healthy Pet Club (HPC) includes 20% discount on neutering, in addition to other great benefits.
