We strongly recommend neutering all pets not intended for breeding as this can prevent or reduce the risk of a number of potentially serious diseases. As we rehome cats alongside the RSPCA we are also very aware of the number of unwanted pets that are currently in the rehoming system.
It is really important to get your pet neutered for a number of reasons including:
Female animals are spayed from 6 months old. 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. We may on occasion opt to spay dogs after their first season in certain breeds but this will be discussed with your vet at one of the puppy checks.
We can neuter pets:
Neutering requires a general anaesthetic so your pet will need to stay with us for the day.
