This is sleepy Sydney the Samoyed. He was in at our Chellaston surgery having a routine castration.
A few days later he is at home modelling some doggie pants which he much prefers to the “cone of shame”
It is important to have your dog castrated as this significantly reduces the chance of them getting prostate disease and also reduces the risk of some cancers.
An unneutered dog is more likely to show aggression towards other dogs and will often roam more trying to find the scent of a bitch.
Some people worry that their dogs personality will change or that they will put weight on – you may see a slight fall in certain behaviour i.e roaming, mounting, fighting, or spraying urine, if exercised and fed correctly weight gain is less likely to happen.
Both my dogs (male & female ) wore these post neutering. Made the recovery process a lot less stressful and kept the wound area clean. (Dog’s surgery suits, Amazon.)
As shops are starting to open back up, and some of the lockdown rules are being relaxed from the 4th July we wanted to update our clients as to how things are working at Abbey Vets, and also explain why we are still keeping our doors closed to clients
This is a grass seed that we removed from in between a dog’s toes!
This is Millie feeling very sorry for herself after a bee/wasp stung her
