Neutering

Neutering a male cat or dog is known as castration and involves removal of the testicles. Neutering a female cat or dog is known as spaying and involves removing the uterus (womb) and the ovaries.
Your pet only needs to stay with us for the day for these operations.

Reasons to neuter your pet:

In both cases it reduces the number of unwanted puppies and kittens.
It reduces the desire to roam and therefore reduces the likelihood of being injured in traffic accidents. It also reduces the risk of some diseases and trauma caused by fighting or mating.

In male dogs it reduces unwanted sexual behaviour towards bitches, people and inanimate objects. In some dogs it can help reduce dominance related aggression. There are also proven health benefits include a reduction or elimination of disorders linked to the prostate gland and testicles including cancers.
In female dogs the proven health benefits include a reduction in mammary tumours (the canine version of breast cancer), prevention of ovarian/womb disorders (including cancer and another life threatening condition known as pyometra) and prevention of phantom pregnancies. It also prevents oestrus (season or heat) which occurs about every six months in entire bitches.
We understand that making the decision to neuter your pet is not an easy one and we are, of course, happy to discuss the concept of neutering with you and give you the most appropriate advice for your situation, before you make any final decisions.
We keep our prices as competitive as possible whilst ensuring your pets get the highest level of care- all our vets are very experienced surgeons and the anaesthetics are carefully monitored by highly trained staff. The prices of all neuterings include a full health check prior to surgery, drugs to prevent pain, a special collar to stop him or her trying to chew the wound, a checkup a few days after the operation and removal of any stitches if required(we use internal absorbable stitches only for some operations).
Cat castrations cost £42, cat spays £55, dog castration prices are from £98 and bitch spay prices start at £125. Please call us for an accurate quote for your dog or bitch as the cost is weight dependent.
