Dog Spaying & Neutering

Dog Spaying and Neutering

Here at Campbell River Veterinary Hospital all our spays and neuters include a physical exam, sedation, so your dog is comfortable before the surgery, IV fluids to keep your dog hydrated and control blood pressure while under general anesthetic, nail trim and pain meds to go home. Spaying and neutering your dog helps reduce the pet overpopulation and reducing wandering by male dogs. Spaying and neutering also mitigate the risks of some cancers of the reproductive organs.

What does neutering/spaying do to a dog?


Neutering removes the testicles from your male dog. Spaying removes the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries from a female dog.


Why is it important to neuter/spay my dog?


Spaying and neutering your dog helps reduces pet overpopulation and reduces the risk of cancers of the reproductive organs.


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


Approximately eight months to one year for most dogs, for giant breeds we suggest 18 to 24 months.


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


Costs vary depending on your pet’s needs. Please call us to discuss a cost estimate.
