Castration in a male dog can be carried out from 6 months old and is a simple operation.

Before the operation you will need to ensure that he is starved from 7.00pm and then bring him to us between 8.30am - 9.00am the following morning. He will need to stay with us until after 4.00pm.

We remove both testicles and he will go home with a small neat wound that will heal over the next 10 days.

Your male dog will benefit in the long run as he is less likely to feel aggressive towards other dogs, he is much less likely to feel the need to urine mark in your house and he won't be responsible for any unwanted litters of puppies.

On the medical side the risk of testicular cancer is eliminated and he is less likely to suffer with prostatic problems later in life.

Neutering really is the best thing that you can do for your companion.
