Dog flu is caused by a virus that infects the respiratory system. It's very contagious between dogs, and some dogs that become infected become very sick, while others just seem to be carriers and spread the virus without having any symptoms themselves. However, as it's possible for a dog to become gravely ill very quickly with this illness, it's important to be aware of the symptoms of dog flu and understand how it's diagnosed and treated.
Neutering is the term generally used to describe the surgical removal of a male dog's testicles. The procedure is carried out under general anaesthetic and can help improve boisterous or challenging behaviour and reduce the risk of your dog developing problems with their prostate as they age. Neutering is a common surgical procedure that is considered to be very safe and effective, but before you have your dog neutered you should be aware of the potential postsurgical complications that can arise when you take your dog home to recover.
