Sterilization or castration of the puppy generates a caring host a lot of questions and doubts. How will this affect the physical and mental well-being of the dog in the future? What are the risks? How is recovery after surgery?


Sterilized girls do not soil your home during heat periods and do not suffer from miscarriages. Thus, the probability of oncological diseases decreases.

Sterilization before the first heat is the most effective prevention of breast tumors, adenomas, purulent inflammation of the uterus. The best age for surgery is 6-12 months, as prescribed by a doctor, depending on the size and weight of the dog. After sterilization, girls have no heat for life.


As for the boys, the operation is best done at the age of 7-9 months, before the dog develops the habit of marking the territory and playing romantic dog games with your children's toys. Dogs castrated at an early age do not have such habits. But if you castrate an adult Maltipoo after a year - it's not a fact that the rituals will disappear from the life of the dog.

And importantly, castrated pets live longer.

The operation consists of the following stages:

  1. Preparation - 20 minutes Narcosis.
  2. Surgery - 15 minutes. Girls undergo one incision of 2-2.5 cm. After the operation, a cosmetic stitch is applied. Castration of males is the removal of the gonads with the imposition of ligatures on the spermatic cords and vessels.
  3. Awakening - 5 minutes.
  4. Restoration of muscle activity - 10-15 minutes.

That is, within an hour maximum, your dog comes out to you on its own feet, after which you go home together.

At home, it is necessary to put a soft collar around the pet's neck so that he does not lick the stitch; treat the stitch and give antibiotics for a week.

Remember, doing this operation, make life easier not only for the dog but also for yourself.

It is a mistake to think it is better to let a boy dog ​​mate once or let a girl give birth once. This way, you get a list of potential problems with both physical and mental health.
