Sterilisation

Show all

Sterilising your dog is part of being a responsible pet owner. Speak to your vet to find out when you should spay or neuter your puppy. In general, most puppies can be sterilised from about 6 months old.

Benefits of sterilisation

Your puppy will live a longer, healthier life

Sterilisation reduces the risk a number of health problems, such as uterine or ovarian cancer, breast cancer and prostate cancer.

Your puppy will be better behaved

Sterilised dogs are more affectionate and less likely to bite, run away, become aggressive, or get into a fight.

You’ll make the world a better place

Spaying or neutering your puppy means fewer dogs being euthanised and also fewer unwanted animals roaming the streets.
