Dog Spaying and Neutering

Having your dog spayed or neutered helps prevent the overpopulation of dogs which in a lot of cases causes many to end up in rescue shelters. It is also the responsible thing to do for your dog and helps their overall health and well-being. It will also significantly help to reduce the chance of any behavioural or health issues.

What does neutering/spaying do to a dog?


Neuter prevents reproduction, behavioural issues, prostate problems. Spay prevents reproduction, behavioural issues, infection in-uterus and mammary gland tumours.

Why is it important to neuter/spay my dog?


To prevent mammary gland tumours and infection in-uterus in females and prostate issues in males.

How old should a dog be before they are neutered/spayed?


At least 6 months of age.

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


Prices can range depending on the weight and age of your dog! Please contact Torbay Road Animal Hospital at 709.753.0506 for detailed information on pricing for a spay or neuter for your dog!
