Getting Your Pet Spayed or Neutered

These routine surgeries not only prevent unwanted pregnancies but also promote longer, healthier lives by significantly lowering the risk of certain infections and cancers.

Additionally, these procedures can mitigate behavioral problems like aggression and roaming, fostering a more harmonious relationship between you and your pets.

Your furry friend's health is our top priority. We take precautions to ensure a safe and successful surgery, including pre-operative blood work, pain medication, and monitoring both during and after surgery. We do everything we can to ensure that your companion is comfortable and pain-free from start to finish.

Spaying & Neutering, Barrie Veterinarians

Neutering (Males)

Neutering, or orchiectomy, is a surgical procedure that involves safely removing the testicles from male dogs and cats, preventing them from fathering litters of puppies or kittens. 

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

Dogs - Neutering your male dog can be helpful in reducing animal aggression and the development of testicular tumors, perineal hernias and prostatic disease.

Spaying (Females)

Spaying, technically known as an ovariohysterectomy, is performed to remove a female pet's reproductive organs. This surgery prevents your dog or cat from becoming pregnant.

Cats - Spaying your female cat will help prevent the development of mammary (breast) tumors and pyometra (infected uterus).

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