Neutering is something normally done when owners do not wish to breed from their pets. There are however many more health benefits for your pet associated with being neutered. We therefore recommend that unless you wish to breed from your pet, you consider the neutering option.

Pets brought into our surgery to be neutered are operated on the same day and are usually able to go home the same afternoon or early evening.

All neutering operations are done under anaesthetic and pets are also given painkillers.

We routinely re-check dog castrates and bitch speys two days after the operation to check on post-operative progress.

For dogs and female cats, stitches are then taken out ten days after the operation.

The cost of the post operative check and stitches out are included in the price of the procedure.

For more details about neutering see our 'Pet Advice' section.
