Neutering Your Dog Is A Great Way To Keep Your Pet Healthy And Happy: Dr
Dogs are neutered for many reasons. One reason is to eliminate the possibility of reproduction. Neutering reduces the risk of testicular cancers and testicular torsions. Some dogs can be neutered earlier, especially in shelter settings. In healthy dogs the prognosis for full recovery is excellent. The entire process from the time anesthesia starts to the time the dog is asleep takes between 30-60 minutes. Most dogs recover quickly after surgery. Restrict your dog's activity for about two weeks after the surgery. Licking the incision can cause irritability and introduce bacteria. Some animals can chew out their teeth if they are able to chew and this may require additional surgery. . .
