Difference between Spaying and Neutering
Spaying and Neutering
Spaying and neutering is one of the most important procedures that dog owners show affection and care for their pets. First-time dog owners have many questions in their mind about the sterilization procedure, surgery procedure, from the risks involved to how much expensive it will be.
spaying refers to the removal of a female dog’s reproductive organs. When a bitch is spayed, the veterinarian removes her ovaries, uterine tubes and uterus. Spaying renders a bitch no longer able to reproduce and eliminates her estrous cycle. Any behavior related to breeding instincts may or may not stopped. The procedure is also called as an ovariohysterectomy.
Neutering refers to the removal of a male dog’s reproductive organs.When a male dog is neutered, both testicles and their associated structures are removed. Neutering renders a male dog unable to reproduce and any behavior related to breeding instincts, like humping, may or may not cease. The procedure is also called as castration.
