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.

Chers clients,

Nous sommes tous conscients de la situation que nous avons vécue dans les derniers mois avec l'arrivée du Covid -19. Due aux défis causés par ces circonstances, nous avons décidé de fermer temporairement l'Hôpital Vétérinaire Acadia. A partir de lundi le 14 septembre, 2020, notre équipe sera consolidé avec celle de l’Hôpital Moncton Animal Hospital.

Dans les jours à suivre nous communiquerons avec nos clients qui ont des rendez-vous & chirurgies prévues afin de les re-planifier à l'Hôpital Moncton Animal Hospital avec Dr. Boutet.

Nous vous remercions à l’avance pour votre patience et votre collaboration pendant cette période hors de l’ordinaire. Nous souhaitons que vous, votre famille et vos animaux soyez sains et saufs.

To our valued Acadia Veterinary Hospital clients:

We are all aware of the rapidly changing situation we have faced over the last few months. Due to the ongoing challenges brought on by COVID-19, we have decided to temporarily close Acadia Veterinary Hospital. This is effective starting Monday September 14, 2020. We have consolidated the team with our Moncton Animal Hospital location so that we can continue to care for your pets.

In the coming days, we will contact clients who have appointments and surgeries booked to reschedule them to Moncton Animal Hospital with Dr Boutet.

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding. We hope that you, your family and pets all continue to stay healthy and safe.
