BEST OF CARE: MODERN MEDICINE, TRADITIONAL VALUES

Nurse Sarah brought beautiful Bella in for a spay today.

The technique used at Penmellyn Vets is a mini-approach, not laparoscopic though with similar advantages of minimal tissue trauma and a tiny wound.

Surgical time is swifter, and our  patients typically recover quickly and comfortably.

Neutering Benefits

Bitches should be neutered from 3 months after their first season or 8 weeks after a false pregnancy.

Early neutering will:

  • Reduce the risk of mammary cancer.
  • Stop unwanted heats/seasons – the inconvenience of three weeks of bleeding and attractiveness to male dogs. Bitches in season have been known to scale metre high fences to get out.
  • Reduce the risk of false pregnancies – a very common and distressing condition.
  • Remove the risk of a pyometra – a life-threatening womb infection very common in older or middle-aged entire bitches.
  • Reduce the number of unwanted puppies.
  • Increase the likelihood of obesity – it is important that neutered bitches are fed slightly less (approx. 10%) than entire bitches. Their weight is in your hands and they will only get fat if they are overfed.
