Neutering or spaying your pet is a simple same-day surgical procedure – an appropriate age for this operation can be discussed with you, but in both male and female dogs and cats this is usually around six months old. The age does differ for rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs and other furries so please do contact us for further advice.
Neutering or spaying your pet creates a healthier, happier and more affectionate animal. We commonly see infections of the uterus in older unspayed bitches and testicular/prostate cancer in entire dogs, both of which are life-threatening and costly to treat.
Sadly, there are also far too many unwanted dogs and cats in re-homing centres that face long stays and often euthanasia simply because there is no-one to adopt them so we ask all pet owners to think responsibly about neutering or spaying when buying a puppy, kitten or other adorable young furry.
Prior to surgery we will discuss pre- and post-operative care including medication, feeding, exercise and so forth and on the day we will keep you fully informed of your pet’s condition and when they can be collected.
