Neutering

Advising you on what is best for you and your pet

Whether or not to neuter your pet can be a difficult and sometimes emotional decision to make. We recognise this and are ready to talk through the pros and cons with you.

Neutering involves removal of the testicles in male animals (castration) and removal of the ovaries and uterus in female animals (spaying). We usually recommend that the procedure be carried out when the animal is about six months old. This ensures that the animal doesn’t develop any unwanted ‘sex linked’ behaviour – for example: Spraying urine or ‘interacting’ with objects that they find attractive.

All neutering is carried out under general anaesthetic, which means that your pet will have to be left at the vets for a few hours. They are usually ready to come home around tea time. We generally ask that your animal comes back to the vets for a check up 2-3 days after and then again a week later, to ensure the wound has healed fully. If you are not planning on letting your pet have a litter, then we would recommend neutering.

We would be happy to make you an appointment for your pet in order to discuss any questions you may have about neutering or the procedures involved. If you a Pet Health Club member you will receive 20% off neutering for cats, dogs and rabbits.
