Vous vous posez des questions sur la castration de votre chien ?

castration of the male dog is very important. Whether in puppies or adult dogs, it is essential to ask the right questions about castration, and to have all the cards in hand before performing this operation. Castration can have both positive and negative effects on the dog, it is a very important step in his life, not to be taken lightly.

Why castrate my dog?

La castration of the male dog also prevents reproduction and therefore from having an unwanted litter. This avoids overcrowding of dogs but also abandonment linked to these unwanted litters.

What precautions should be taken before and after the operation?

before puberty. A small dog will be ideally neutered at 6-7 months, while a very large dog will be neutered at 18 months. Several steps are to be taken for the castration of your dog, including a first appointment with the veterinarian, in order to perform a pre-anaesthetic blood test and inform you of the progress of the operation.

After the operation you must pay attention to its feeding. Indeed, a castrated dog will tend to gain weight faster and more easily than an uncastrated dog.

The behaviour of the uncastrated dog

Un >uncastrated dog does not behave in the same way as a castrated dog. Indeed, in periods of heat of bitches, your four-legged animal will tend to run away more often in order to find a female to reproduce. During these periods the dogs can quickly become uncontrollable. Some "whole" dogs, as uncastrated dogs are called, may also be more aggressive.

It is still important to take into account the animal welfare and do not forget that in the decision you make, you will impose this choice on them, it is a very particular act that requires reflection and having all the cards in hand. Feel free to discuss it with your veterinarian.
