Neutering

This is generally recommended for all dogs and cats not intended for breeding purposes. There are significant preventive health benefits to neutering for both male and female dogs and cats. For example reduced risk of mammary gland tumour, pyometra, prostatic disease, anal adenoma, perineal hernias, etc. Most neutered male cats live on average two to three times longer than entire toms.

In general neutered animals also make more manageable pets – no seasons, less urine marking, less inclined to stray, often less aggressive, etc. We can discuss this in more depth with you and also advise you on the best timing for the procedure. We recommend spaying older female dogs 2-4 months after a season.

After neutering most dogs energy requiremants become lower. For this reason we recommend a dietary review with one of our nurses six months after neutering.
