Orchidectomy in Dogs (Neuter)

 

Orchidectomy is the proper medical term for neutering a male animal. Such surgery is performed to eliminate sexual activities and render the dog sterile. It usually (but not always) reduces a dog’s tendency to roam and fight. The general level of aggression may also be reduced. However, it is not a replacement for obedience training by the owner. In older dogs, this surgery may be necessary due to disease of the testicles or prostate gland.

 The surgery involves an incision made just in front of the scrotum to remove the testicle and then the incision is closed. There are usually no sutures to be removed as they are under the skin.

Orchiectomy in Cats (Neuter)

 

Orchiectomy is the proper medical term for neutering a male animal. Such surgery is performed to eliminate sexual activities and render the cat sterile. It usually (but not always) reduces a cat’s tendency to roam and fight. The general level of aggression may also be reduced. However, it is not a replacement for proper socialization by the owner. In older cats, this surgery may be necessary due to disease of the testicles or prostate gland.

 The surgery involves an incision made in scrotum to remove the testicle and then the incision is closed. There are usually no sutures required, however the cat should not be allowed to lick the incision site as this could lead to infection.
