We strongly recommend neutering all pets not intended for breeding. This can prevent or reduce the risk of a number of potentially serious diseases in both male and female pets. Neutering is a straightforward process. It requires a general anaesthetic so your pet will need to stay with us for the day.
Females are usually speyed from 5-6 months of age. Apart from preventing unwanted pregnancies, this can reduce the risk of mammary cancer and prevent false pregnancies and a potentially fatal womb infection called Pyometra.
Males are much less likely to stray or get into fights if they have been neutered, reducing the risk of associated injuries. Neutering will also prevent them from developing testicular cancer, prostatic problems which can lead to difficulty going to the toilet, hernias and tumours around the bottom.
If you would like to find out more about neutering your pet, please contact the surgery.
