Reproductive Surgery for Pets in Olds

Spaying and neutering are surgical procedures used to sterilize cats, dogs and other animals. These are two of the most common surgeries performed at animal hospitals and are considered safe. 

These routine procedures stop unwanted litters from being born, leading to fewer dogs and cats roaming the streets of our community or ending up at animal shelters.

Plus, these surgeries help curb problematic behaviors in pets and offer health benefits for your four-legged friend. 

Our team at Countryside Veterinary Hospital will do everything we can to ensure your pet is as safe and comfortable as possible. We have strict surgical protocols in place, including diagnostic testing, pain management, and monitoring before and after the procedure.

Benefits of Spaying & Neutering

Find out more about what happens during each procedure and the benefits you and your pet can experience:

Neutering (Males)

During a neutering procedure (or orchiectomy), the testicles are removed from a male cat or dog to prevent them from fathering litters of kittens or puppies. 

Cats - Neutering your cat can help to curb undesirable behaviours such as spraying, roaming and aggression towards other cats.

Dogs - Neutering your dog may help to reduce animal aggression, 'humping' and attempts at escaping your home or yard.

Spaying (Females)

Spaying removes a female pet's reproductive organs. This surgery prevents your pet from becoming pregnant

Cats - Spaying  your cat may help prevent your kitty from escaping your home, roaming, yowling and urinating inappropriately.

Dogs - Having your female dog spayed ends their heat cycle and helps prevent pyometra (womb infection) and mammary tumours.

When to Spay or Neuter Your Pet

Your vet is intimately acquainted with your pet's health status. While we offer these general guidelines related to spaying and neutering, please consult your veterinarian for information specific to your pet.
