Canine Neuter

Canine neutering is routinely recommended at around 6 months of age, which is generally when your pet is becoming sexually mature.

We recommend neutering all male pets. The benefits to your pet’s health and behavior as well as eliminating accidental breeding makes this decision easier ~ continue reading…

 

Canine neuters are performed under anesthesia. While under anesthetic, a Registered Veterinary Technician will be monitoring vital signs such as blood pressure, heart rate, and oxygenation. At KBVH, we like to ensure that all necessary precautions are taken before any pet is about to go under general anesthesia. For this reason, we recommend patients have pre-operative blood work. If your pet is not already micro-chipped, this would be a good time to do this.

 

Once surgery is complete, your pet will recover in hospital, where he will be monitored until pick up, usually sometime that same evening or the next morning. We will send him home with post-operative pain medication. An RVT will discuss post-op care at the time of discharge.

Please feel free to book an appointment with an RVT who will provide you with an estimate, perform the preoperative bloodwork and answer any questions or concerns you may have.
