Unwanted Litters

Castration prevents unwanted or unplanned litters, therefore helps to reduce the burden on rehoming and rescue centres.

Urine marking

Entire male dogs tend to urine mark more frequently to mark out their territory. Sometimes this can lead to inappropriate urination inside the home

Hypersexuality

Unneutered male dogs are more likely to roam in search of a mate and can exhibit unwanted sexual behaviours due to frustration.

Testosterone related disease

Castration significantly reduces the chance of many prostatic diseases and reduces the risk of some cancers.

Unwanted social behaviour

Castration may help in the management of some cases of unwanted social behaviours. Always discuss your dog' s behaviour with a veterinary professional.
