Neutering

For non breeders of animals we believe neutering is essential.

Female Cat and Dog Neutering (Spaying)

We recommend that all female dogs and cats that are not intended to be bred from are neutered. Queen cats come into season at around this time and are highly successful at strolling the neighbourhood to find a mate and coming home pregnant!

Bitches often present later in life with reproductive problems (eg breast cancer or pyometra – pus in the womb) many of which are removed or drastically reduced by early neutering. It has been shown that spaying bitches before they have multiple seasons reduces the risk of breast cancer later in life.

We are currently giving FREE micro chips with all dog neutering.

Did you know?

  • Neutered bitches live, on average, 2 years longer than those that are not!
  • It is a common misconception that female pets will be better after a litter of pups or kittens – this is not correct.

Male Dog Neutering

Male dogs can make good pets either castrated or entire. Castrating a dog will have no effect on his character.

Did you know?

  • All guide dogs and other working dogs are castrated?

Male Cat Neutering

Tom cats that are not pedigree stud cats should all be castrated. The stray cat population in Britain is growing rapidly. Castrated male cats also:

  • Smell less
  • Fight less
  • Roam less

As a result they  pick up less infections, for example, feline aids and leukaemia and reduce the risk of road traffic accidents through roaming. Castrating a cat will have no effect on his character.

We can also neuter and provide neutering advice about a wide range of other species - please book a FOC pre-op check with one of our vets to discuss."
