SPAYING and NEUTERING of Pet Animals
A: Spaying is the removal of a female animal's reproductive organs (ovaries and uterus) so that it cannot reproduce. The removal of the ovaries prevents the undesirable estrus behavior. It is this which causes male dogs to be attracted to the female and predisposes her to being injured in fights or getting lost when out searching for mates.
A: Castration is the removal of a male animal's reproductive organs (testes) so that it cannot reproduce. The removal of the testes prevents undesirable roaming and aggressive behavior.
Q: WHY DO I HAVE TO STARVE MY PET BEFORE THE OPERATION?
A: This is to prevent regurgitation and inhalation of vomit or saliva into the lungs while under anesthetic or during recovery. Food should be withheld from 10pm on the night before surgery but water can be given until you bring the pet into the clinic.
Q: WHY DO I HAVE TO BRING MY PET IN SO EARLY?
A: To allow it to settle down before its anesthetised and to enable pre-medication and tranquilisation if necessary.
Q: SHOULD I LET MY PET HAVE HER FIRST HEAT PERIOD BEFORE SPAYING?
A: No. Research has shown that there is a protective effect against mammary tumours later in life if dogs (or cats) are spayed before the first heat period. This effect decreases with each heat period.
Q: AT WHAT AGE CAN MY CAT OR DOG BE SPAYED?
A: This surgical procedure can be done at any time from the age of 5 months. It can be done earlier although it isn't recommended at this clinic.
Q: AT WHAT AGE CAN MY CAT OR DOG BE CASTRATED?
A: This surgical procedure can be done from about 6 - 7 months of age.
Q. ARE THERE HEALTH RISKS TO STERILIZATION?
Sterilization itself is a fast and simple procedure that is commonly done. However, just as with any surgical procedure in humans that involves sedatives and general anesthetics, the same health concerns exist for dogs/cats. Nevertheless, adverse reactions to the drugs are actually rare.
Q. HOW WILL I KNOW IF MY PET IS FIT FOR SURGERY?
General health status and fitness for surgery is assessed based on blood tests and a physical examination. The blood tests (complete blood count, kidney and liver function tests) are highly recommended (often mandatory) for dogs/cats that are four years old and older; the tests are optional for younger animals.
* Upon booking your appointment, kindly inform the veterinarian if your male dog/cat has only one descended testicle. There are special considerations for animals with retained testicles.
*We do not spay dogs that are in season as there's high risk of bleeding during surgery as well as tissues are more friable and weak. We recommend putting off surgery till 2 mos after the heat period.
