We highly recommend that clients speak to their vet for advice if they are considering neutering their pet.
Neutering involves surgically preventing pets from reproducing. In males, the operation is called castration and in females it’s called spaying. Both operations are carried out under general anaesthetic.
Neutering can have benefits for you and your cat or dog including:
- Neutering males and females stop unwanted pregnancies and resulting litters
- Neutering stops or reduces the chances of your pet getting certain diseases such as testicular or ovarian cancer, womb infections and prostate disease
- In some cases, particularly with male cats, it can reduce certain behaviours such as marking territories, roaming and fighting
If you would like to discuss any aspects of neutering or would like to arrange an appointment to neuter your pet, please contact us at any of our branches.
