*Warning - this video contains graphic images of surgery throughout*

Neutering is the general term used to describe the removal of reproductive organs in dogs and involves a surgical procedure. In male dogs this is called castration and in bitches, spaying. Like all surgeries, it carries a certain amount of risk, but there are also risks for dogs in not having this procedure.

In this video, Veterinary Surgeon Reena Patel from Medivet (Pinner) gives us the information we need to make a decision about what is in the best interests of our pets. She explains what castration and spaying involve, describes how to minimise risks, addresses some common concerns and looks at the risks of not having the procedure.

She also explains what age is appropriate for this surgery and what is meant by the term 'chemical castration'.

For any dog owner who does not plan to show or breed from their pet, it is well worth considering neutering.
