WHEN SHOULD I GET MY PET NEUTERED?
Cats – It is advised to sterilise cats before the age of five months. Stopping unexpected pregnancies and significantly reducing male cat spraying and marking while still giving the kittens time to develop. Kittens who are sterilised at this age recover quickly after surgery.
Dogs – Prior to the first heat, small-breed dogs should be spayed or neutered at six months old. Large-breed dogs should be neutered after their growth ceases, which is often between the ages of 9 and 15 months. Your veterinarian can provide guidance on when or whether to spay a large-breed female dog.
HOW LONG DOES A DOG NEED TO RECOVER AFTER BEING NEUTERED IN THE UK?
Spaying and neutering will require at least two weeks and possibly more for your pet to recover completely. Even if your pet usually lives outside, it is crucial to keep him or her inside at all times for the next 10 days (except when going to the bathroom) to avoid infection and improve healing.
WHAT IS MY PET ALLOWED AND NOT ALLOWED TO DO POST NEUTERING?
For the next 10 to 14 days, your pet should be under close observation. Avoid bathing your pet and avoid topical ointments on the incision site since the surgical adhesive will break down too quickly if it gets wet. Although dogs can be walked on a leash to relieve themselves, pets must be kept indoors where they can be tidy, dry, and warm. Steer clear of excessive playing, running, and jumping. Exercise puts your pet at greater risk of developing swelling around the incision site, which might cause the sutures to dissolve too soon. No swimming, or playing in the snow. Don’t allow your pet to lick, scratch, or chew the incision. A collar must be applied if this happens to avoid any potentially dangerous post-operative complications. Up to one month following surgery, male dogs and cats can still become pregnant with an unsterilized female.
THE BENEFITS OF NEUTERING YOUR PET?
Unwanted behaviours like scent marking may be reduced in male dogs after neutering.
Given that neutered dogs may be less easily distracted by non-neutered canines, neutering may be advantageous for training.
Whether your pet is a male or a girl, neutering enhances its general health. Pregnancy-related health concerns, certain cancers, and deadly infections can all be eliminated.
By avoiding the needless costs of unexpected pregnancies and raising puppies or kittens, neutering can help people save money. Additionally, it lowers high vet expenditures linked to specific ailments.
Female dogs who have not been neutered are more likely to develop mammary tumours. Some tumours and uterine infections (pyometra), which can be very expensive to treat and perhaps fatal, can be avoided by neutering your pet.
Male Dogs who have undergone neutering may be less prone to exhibit violence toward or become the target of aggression from other canines.
