Spay & Neuter FAQ

pet amputations

When it comes to carrying for your dog, getting it spayed or neutered is often a top concern. Should you get your dog fixed, and if so should you choose to spay or neuter it? We are here to answer this question along with other top questions about dog neuter and spay procedures offered by your veterinarian in Castle Rock at Brekke Veterinary Clinic.

What is the Difference Between Neuter and Spay?

Neutering and spaying a dog is a procedure that removes the sexual reproductive organs of the animal. A dog can be spayed or neutered depending on the sex of the dog. A female dog will be spayed, which involves taking out the dog’s uterus. A male dog is neutered, a process of removing the testicles. Both types of pet surgery are simple, safe and effective thanks to decades of research on the subject. We offer dog neuter and spay services at Brekke Veterinary Clinic, your favorite veterinarian at Castle Rock.

Why Should I Consider a Spay or Neuter Procedure?

The main reason that pet owners seek our spay or dog neuter procedure is to prevent unwanted pregnancies among their dogs. However, there are several other reasons why you may want to spay or neuter your dog. By removing the reproductive organs of your dog we solve their problem of sexual frustration. Going in heat is a reoccurring battle for dogs who cannot fulfill their urges. This can be especially problematic for a dog that lives indoors without other dogs as companions. Our dog spay or neuter procedures will fix that problem for your pet. Pet sterilization also prevents your dog from having cancer of the sexual reproduction organs, i.e. uterine, testicular, and ovarian cancers. Once the organs are removed, so is the chance that your dog will develop these types of devastating cancers.
