Dog Spaying and Neutering

Having your dog neutered is an important and responsible decision, which will help control the overpopulation of dogs who can all too often end up in shelters. Not only is this a responsible thing to do as a pet owner, but it may also help reduce the risks of some cancers and other potential health concerns, as well as reduce unwanted behaviours.

What does neutering/spaying a dog do?


Neutering involves removing the testicles, while spaying is the removal of the uterus and ovaries. This sterilizes the pet so that it can no longer reproduce.

Why is it important to neuter/spay my dog?


Beyond helping to control the unwanted pet population, spaying and neutering can also help prevent hormone-related cancers, undesirable marking behaviour and roaming.

How old should a dog be before neutering/spaying them?


We generally recommend spaying or neutering your puppy between 4 and 6 months of age.

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


Costs can vary due to the size and age of your pet. Contact Acadia Veterinary Hospital by phone: (506) 384-4838, e-mail: info@acadiavet.ca, or drop into the clinic to discuss spaying or neutering your pet.
