Dog Spaying and Neutering

Having your dog spayed or neutered is not only extremely important in controlling our pet population, but it also helps with preventing diseases in both male and female dogs. It allows your dog to live a longer, healthier life and may prevent behavioural issues associated with being intact.

What does neutering/spaying do to a dog?

Neutering is the term used for male dogs and includes the removal of both testicles. It helps to prevent both testicular and prostate cancer from occurring. Spaying is the term used for female dogs and involves an abdominal surgery in which their ovaries, fallopian tubes and uterus are removed. It will prevent the dog from becoming pregnant while also preventing diseases such as mammary tumors and Pyometra (an infection in the uterus).

How old should a dog be before they are neutered/spayed?

Please consult the Veterinarian regarding what is the best option for your dog. Most pets have this procedure done between 6 months and 1 year of age. Specific parameters, such as size and breed are taken into consideration.

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

Please call the clinic directly at 403-457-0911 and we put together a treatment plan that suites the needs of your pet.
