Sterilization and neutering

You can also contact our clinic for the sterilization or neutering of your dog, cat or rabbit.

From a medical point of view, what happens in both the female and the male during this operation is castration, which is why it will be referred to as castration. In females, the ovaries and part of the uterus are removed during castration. This makes them infertile and reduces the risk of cancer in some animal species. In the males, the testicles are removed, so that certain behavioral problems such as severe dominance, spraying and driving behavior can go away. In addition, the infertility as a result of the castration is especially an advantage in males, as they cannot conceive females while walking around outside.
