Dog Neuter Surgery

Also known as canine castration surgery


Enter the operating room and see a canine castration, more commonly known as dog neuter surgery. This procedure requires general anesthesia maintained with inhalation (gas) anesthetic. Many veterinarians also give IV fluids, monitor heart and respiratory rates, blood pressure, oxygen saturation levels, and give medications to control pain during this surgery. This photo gallery focuses on the surgery steps - speak to your vet for specific anesthesia and anesthetic monitoring protocols.
