We are a small, personal clinic for dogs and cats. At our clinic, we can handle a lot of cases and the ones we can’t, we can refer to bigger clinics. We share premises with Hundens Hörna, which runs a dog daycare and pet store, and Lyckliga Svansar, which trims dogs. Solna Djurklinik and Hundens Hörna have a close collaboration but are different companies. The staff in the shop belong to HH and are very good at feed, fur care, tooth brushing, claw clipping, activation etc. For questions regarding your animal's treatment or appointment, contact the clinic via email or phone.

We perform surgical castrations of female and male cats as well as male dogs under 15kg (approximately 33 pounds). We perform chemical castration of all male dogs regardless of weight.


There are many benefits to neutering your cat. Besides avoiding unwanted kittens you lower the risk of mammary tumors, pyometra, strong smelling urine, unwanted peeing behaviours and fighting.

The disadvantages of neutering are the risk of weight gain and a certain increased risk of urinary tract problems, especially in male cats. However, both of these problems are easily solved with the right food and usually involve much milder problems than having the cat unneutered.

We castrate cats from the age of 4 months, but preferably at 5-6 months, when they have had time to grow a little and the male's testicles have had time to descend into the scrotum properly.

Your cat cannot eat anything 6 hours prior to surgery. Water is allowed as usual.

Male Cats

The cat is given sedatives and a local anesthesia. The scrotum is opened and the testicles removed. To avoid infection, the openings are not sewn back up and your cat will have two small open incisions over the scrotum. They heal quickly. You do not have to worry if your cat tries to lick the wounds. Do keep an eye out for swelling, bleeding, pus or foul odour.

If your male cat had reached sexual maturity before the operation, he can still mate and fertilize a female cat a few weeks after the surgery. In this case keep him inside for 2-3 weeks.

Female Cats

The cat is given anesthesia. The uterus and ovaries are removed through an opening in the abdomen. The wound is closed with intracutaneous sutures which means that you will not see any visible stitches. Most cats do not need an Elizabethan collar (E-collar, pet-cone or cone of shame). If your cat licks so much that the skin gets irritated a cone may be needed to put in place to ensure the wound can heal.

After a few days a soft bump may appear over the wound. This is a completely normal process due to the suture material being resorbed. If you find that the bump can be pushed inside the body, please contact us, as this might be a sign of a hernia.

Birth control pills for cats are no longer available due to the high incidence of malignant mammary tumors.


We do not castrate female dogs.

If you have a male dog that is fixating on female dogs in heat and is very interested in smells such as urine markings, neutering might be beneficial. It is important to note that castration is not a solution for all behavioral problems, but those that are linked to hormones. You will still have to combine castration with training to get a good lasting result.

Castration also prevents prostate problems, seen commonly in older male dogs.

Risks involve weight gain, coat quality and a very small risk of incontinence. However, incontinence can usually be remedied with medication. Consult your veterinary professional if you are thinking about castrating a nervous insecure male as problems associated with this might be exacerbated.

Surgical Castration of Male Dogs

We only castrate dogs 15kg and under.

We castrate male dogs from the age of 6 months. If they are to be shown we recommend that you wait until at least 9-12 months of age to reduce the risk of poor coat quality. It has previously been thought that growth is inhibited in early castrated animals, but American studies have now shown that this is not the case. However, a male that is neutered before puberty never develops the muscle mass of an adult, unneutered dog.

Please be advised that your dog cannot eat anything 6 hours prior to surgery. Water is allowed as usual.

The dog is given sedatives and local anesthesia.The testicles are removed through an incision in front of the scrotum, a so-called prescrotal incision. The wound is closed with resorbable sutures that dissolves by the body. This means they do not need to be removed.

An Elizabethan collar (E-collar, pet-cone or cone of shame) is required for 7-10 days after surgery while the wound heals. Keep an eye out for swelling, bleeding, pus or foul odour from the surgical site.

Please note that your dog can still mate with and fertilize a female dog a few weeks after the surgery due to sperm still being alive in the ductus deferens (the tubes from the testicles transporting the sperm).

Chemical Castration of Male Dogs

An alternative to surgical castration is chemical castration with a Suprelorin chip.The chip is injected under the skin in the neck in the same way as a regular ID chip. This can be a good option if you either want an idea of how your dog would react if surgically castrated or if you intend to use the dog for breeding at a later date.

The Suprelorin chip comes in two varieties, lasting 6 and 12 months respectively. If it is the first time your dog receives a chemical castration we recommend the 6 month chip.

Sometimes behavioral problems may get worse the first weeks after the injection. The male dog may still have functional sperm for 6 weeks after injection and should not be allowed to mate. Infertility may last 12-18 months after injection. This means that you have to plan ahead if you intend to use the dog for breeding at a later time.

Other side effects are similar to those after regular castration. The dog may also experience some swelling around the injection area and the testicles usually shrink.
