Male dog neutering is a surgical procedure performed by veterinarians. In this process, the dog's testicles are removed or ligated, thereby eliminating its ability to reproduce. Neutering male dogs offers many benefits:

  • Preventing unwanted pregnancies: A neutered male dog eliminates the risk of pregnancy when mated with female dogs. This helps to reduce the number of uncontrolled breeding and stray dogs.

  • Controlling unwanted behaviors: Neutering can help reduce or eliminate some unwanted behaviors in male dogs. For example, behaviors such as aggression, pointing, high sex drive, and avoidance usually decrease after sterilization.

  • Health benefits: The risk of testicular and prostate cancer is reduced in neutered male dogs. In addition, some urinary tract problems and some sexual organ diseases are prevented.

Neutering is usually done at a young age (6 to 12 months), but it can also be done in adult dogs. The procedure is usually performed under local or general anesthesia and should be performed by a veterinarian.

It is important to pay attention to the dog's recovery process after neutering. Your veterinarian will give you post-neutering care instructions. It is important to keep your dog calm during the healing process, to keep the wound area clean and to protect it from possible infections.

It is recommended that you consult a veterinarian for more information and proper timing on neutering your dog. Your veterinarian can provide you with more detailed information about the procedure and can choose the most appropriate option based on your dog's condition.

How To?

Male dog neutering is performed by veterinarians and usually includes the following steps:

  • Anesthesia: General or local anesthesia is applied to relax your dog and perform the procedure painlessly. Your veterinarian will decide on your dog's health status and the anesthesia method to be used during the procedure.

  • Preparation: Your dog's hair can be trimmed before the operation to clean the area. Working in a sterile environment, the veterinarian and his assistants prepare the necessary equipment for the operation.

  • Surgical procedure: The veterinarian makes a small incision on the scrotum (scrotum). Through this incision, the testicles are removed or ligated to eliminate the ability to reproduce. The bleeding is stopped and the incision is closed with sutures. In some cases, both testicles are removed, while in other cases, one testis is removed while the other testis is ligated.

  • Recovery: Waiting for your dog to come out of anesthesia before he wakes up. The veterinarian can then monitor your dog to monitor his condition and monitor his recovery. The healing process is usually completed within a few days.

Neutering your dog is usually done quickly and safely. However, as with any surgical procedure, there can be certain risks and complications. Therefore, it is important to consult a veterinarian and perform the procedure in a professional environment.

Remember, spaying should only be done by licensed veterinarians. Your veterinarian will explain to you in detail the issues you need to pay attention to before and after the procedure.

After Care

There are a few important points to consider after neutering your dog:

  • Healing process: Your dog needs a post-operative recovery period. Your veterinarian will give you the recommended recovery time and instructions. Generally, it's important for your dog to stay calm, avoid strenuous activities, and rest for a few days after surgery.

  • Wound care: Your vet will give you instructions on post-operative wound care. You may need to keep the wound area clean and dry, dressing or applying medications as recommended by your veterinarian. If you notice redness, swelling or signs of infection in the wound area, you should contact your veterinarian immediately.

  • Activity restrictions: It's important to keep your dog calm after surgery. Activities such as strenuous exercise, high jumping or climbing stairs can affect the dog's wound healing. You may need to limit your dog's activity level as recommended by your veterinarian.

  • Nutrition: You can continue to feed your dog a normal diet after surgery. However, it is important to control the amount of food, as there may be a tendency to gain weight. Your vet can recommend a feeding plan that suits your dog's needs.

  • Symptoms to watch out for: Symptoms to watch out for after your dog's surgery include excessive licking, wound opening, bleeding, loss of appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, or difficulty urinating. If you notice such symptoms, you should contact your veterinarian immediately.

It is important to monitor your dog's recovery after neutering and to follow all necessary care steps. If you have any problems or concerns, it is best to consult your veterinarian.

Neutering Fees for Male Dogs

Fees for neutering your dog can vary depending on many factors. These factors include the price policies of the veterinary clinics in your area, the age and size of the dog, the experience of the veterinarian, and the clinic or hospital where the sterilization will take place.

The cost of sterilization usually varies depending on the complexity and duration of the surgery. In addition, additional services (anesthesia, wound care, medications, dressings) and post-operative follow-up may be included in the price.
