Neutering Your Pet
If a cat has not been neutered, they will fight with other cats and invariably suffer with cat bite abscesses, and will be at more risk of contracting Feline Leukaemia or Feline Immunodeficiency Disease. Entire tomcats will mark their territory and produce a very strong smelling urine. Female cats will be in season every 21 days from March - September (approximately). Entire female cats can also be prone to mammary cancers later in life.
Neutering your male or female cat from 6 months of age will help prevent this. NB we can now neuter your kitten earlier please click here for info.
This practice accepts neutering vouchers from Cats Protection and RSPCA.
An un-neutered dog or bitch will be at greater risk of testicular and prostate cancer (males), and mammary cancer and uterus infections (females). Neutering can also help with aggression problems in males.
We can neuter your male dog from 6 months of age.
We will neuter female dogs from 6 months of age also, this can be before a season in smaller breeds. If your bitch is Labrador size or above, we recommend she has a first season to prevent urinary incontinence.
If your bitch has had a season, we can perform the operation approx 2 months after her season finishes.
This practice accepts neutering vouchers from the Dogs Trust and the RSPCA.
If you are interested, there is a video of us performing a bitch spay at Warbreck House Vet Centre at the bottom of this page. We had many positive comments at our Open Day about this video BUT some people did feel a little faint, so if you are sensitive to watching surgical procedures please do not watch.
