Spaying and neutering a pet is more of a necessity than a choice! Spaying is one of the most important decisions you can make for your pet’s health. Spaying and neutering require you to remember a few essential points that will help you evaluate why, how, and when. Spaying and neutering are very safe and standard procedures performed by a veterinarian. Doing so has many benefits for both you and your pet.
What is the spay surgery in pets?
Spaying is a surgical procedure in which part of a pet’s reproductive organs is removed to prevent reproduction permanently. We perform spaying and neutering mostly on male and female dogs, cats, rabbits, and guinea pigs. For male animals, we remove the testicles.
In the female animal, we also remove the ovaries and uterus. Spaying and neutering are performed by an experienced Toronto North Animal Hospital veterinarian under sterilized conditions with the animal under general anesthesia. Pet owners should consult their veterinarian to determine the appropriate age for neutering dogs.
By neutering, you help your pet live a healthier life, as neutered animals are less susceptible to certain diseases. Spaying may also help reduce some unwanted behaviours in your pet. In general, this surgery prevents unnecessary births and reduces the number of unwanted births.
How are spay and neuter surgeries done?
These surgeries make animals unable to have babies. They put your pet to sleep with special medicine. They also use a tube to help them breathe. Dogs and female cats stay warm with a blanket. Male cats don’t need a blanket. They wake up with one.
Females (spay) get a cut below their belly button. They take out the reproductive organs. Then, they close the incision with stitches and glue.
Males (neuter) get a cut near their private parts. They remove the testicles. Then, they close the incision with stitches and glue.
Male cats get a cut on their private parts, and the testicles are removed. The incision will close by itself.

How long does the spay surgery take in for your pet?
Spay surgery on pets
has different times
Fixing a male cat takes less than 2 minutes!
Depending on age and size, a male dog takes 5 to 20 minutes. A female cat takes 15 to 20 minutes, depending on age and heat cycle.
A female dog takes 20 to 90 minutes, sometimes more, depending on her age, size, and if she is in heat. Females in heat take longer because their reproductive organs are delicate and have more blood.
Common problems or risks after spaying surgery in pets
Healthy young animals have fewer problems. But it’s harder to keep them calm after surgery.
Older animals, those in heat, or other health issues have more problems. Tell the vet if your pet is sick or takes medicine. They will take care of them.
Common problems include redness, infections, incision opening, swelling, and bleeding. Pets can worsen these issues by licking or not staying calm.
