What is the castration or neutering of a dog or cat
About spaying and neutering
Castration is a very common procedure for pets.
Castration means removing certain gonads and tissues from the body to prevent pregnancy and avoid certain medical and behavioral problems.
The procedure is minimally invasive for pets and requires little time to stay. You can bring your cat or dog to the clinic and pick them up later that day.
Our veterinarian has many years of experience in performing these operations and here we have a first-class team to ensure that everything goes smoothly.
About the procedure
Before surgery, we will make sure to give you any pre-surgical nutrition instructions, as well as follow-up care the day before surgery. This is important for your pet’s health during the operation.
Once you arrive at the clinic, we will inform you once again what to expect and answer all your questions.
Our veterinarian will then perform a routine check to make sure your pet is healthy before being anesthetized.
All surgical procedures carry little risk, but we work hard to minimize them before, during and after surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are you accepting new patients?
When is it good to neuter my dog?
For example, for dogs of large breeds, we may suggest that you wait until your puppy is fully grown.
When is it good to neuter my cat?
We recommend that you neuter or neuter your cat between the ages of 4 and 6 months.
How much do castrations cost?
The cost of neutering a male or female animal depends on the size of your pet, species, age, overall health and sex.
Is castration surgery safe?
Like all medical procedures, there is always a small degree of risk – but most pets can be neutered or neutered.
The operation is performed very safely under anesthesia, and complications are rare for healthy pets.
In fact, this is one of the most common procedures we do here at our veterinary clinic.
Our veterinarian always performs a complete pre-surgical examination of your pet to make sure they are healthy before anesthesia.
Most pets go in for surgery in the morning and then come home the same day.
Is the operation painful?
As with any surgery, there may be some discomfort, especially in the first 3-5 days after that.
However, we ensure that your pet always has adequate pain control – both during the procedure and with pain medications to make them comfortable at home.
How long will it take for my pet to recover?
Don’t worry, we’ll give you specific instructions so you know exactly what to expect and how to take care of your pet after surgery.
As a general rule, they will need to be monitored more closely for the first 12-24 hours (as the effects of anesthesia slowly disappear).
They will then need to rest as much as possible until they fully recover. For most pets, this is about 10-14 days when their stitches are removed (we also practice the method of suturing without removing the threads).
How long does the operation last?
This varies depending on the size, species and sex of the animal. These procedures can range from 10 minutes to over an hour.
If you want a more accurate estimate for your pet, ask your veterinarian.

Can a microchip be placed on my pet while it is anesthetized?
Yes! We strongly recommend micro-chipping while your pet is calm during the operation.
Can I bathe my pet after surgery?
No, bathing is not safe until your pet is completely healed because water, soap and dirt can get inside the incision. Swimming is also not allowed for the same reason.
If you think your pet needs a bath, give us a call and we’ll help you choose the best way to clean them. During this time, try to keep your pet indoors as much as possible.
