Neutering Your Pet

The ideal age to neuter your pet is around 5 to 7 months. You should neuter your female pet before the first heat to reduce the risk of mammary tumors (breast tumors). If your dog has already had a heat, it takes two months after bleeding before we can perform surgery. This reduces the risk of bleeding during the procedure (not applicable to cats).

Myth or reality? Animals tend to gain weight after being neutered?

Answer: Myth! This is more related to poor diet or lack of activity.

Benefits of neutering females:

  • Avoid unwanted litter

  • Eliminate excessive vocalization and annoyance of a cat in heat

  • Eliminate loss of blood from the dog in heat

  • Reduces wandering

Benefits of neutering males:

  • Decrease aggressive behavior (fighting to defend the territory and marking territory with urine)

  • Treat certain testicle-related diseases or testosterone levels produced (prostatitis)

  • Avoid health problems related to sex hormones (testicular tumor or tumor around the anus)

Declawing Your Cat

Thinking about declawing? Before choosing to declaw your cat, you must take several medical drawbacks in consideration.

The procedure can pose the following risks:

  • Pain

  • Infection

  • Tissue necrosis (tissue death)

  • Lameness

  • Back pain

  • Back and joint problems

  • Nerve damage

  • Litter box problems

  • Personality changes (nervousness, fearful, aggression)

Scratching is normal cat behavior. Whether to stretch their muscles, mark territory or remove the dead husks from their claws, scratching is not done to deliberately destroy a favourite chair or sofa.

There are several declawing alternatives you can use to avoid ruining your home’s furniture:

  • Nail caps

  • Clipping and trimming the nails

  • Provide various scratching posts of different materials (carpet, wood, cardboard, etc.)
