PROFESSIONAL CARE FOR PRECIOUS PAWS
Neutering of dogs, cats and smaller pets can make pets easier to look after and reduces the likelihood of some problems and diseases occurring in later life. Animals being neutered can usually go home on the same day and recovery is generally rapid.
Neutering is the removal of the testicles in the male and the ovaries and uterus in the female. Almost all cats except those used for breeding, are neutered. In females this prevents pregnancy and in males it reduces roaming, fighting and spraying. Female cats can be neutered from 4 months old and should be spayed by five and a half months old to avoid pregnancy. Males can be castrated at the same age. We will admit your cat and operate in the morning and you can collect him or her in the afternoon. Recovery is usually fast with your pet being back to normal in 2 or 3 days.
We recommend that all non-breeding females are neutered and advise that many non-breeding males will benefit from neutering. Some of the advantages of neutering are as follows:
Both males and females will require less food after neutering otherwise they may gain weight. Regular weight checks will help you to maintain their ideal weight. Neutering reduces sexually triggered behaviour but does not change your pet's personality.
If you are unsure, please discuss neutering with your vet.
