Neutering

Among the most common surgical procedures are castration for male dogs and spaying for females. These can be done from six months old if you don’t plan to breed from them.

If you don’t want pups, we advise this surgery is carried out to prevent aggression, dominance and conditions such as prostate and testicular cancers in males and in bitches to safeguard against conditions such as pyometra womb infection, breast cancer and phantom pregnancies.

We also advise that you have your cat neutered to prevent unwanted kittens and to stop male cats from roaming and spraying. Females will come into season at approximately six months old and will fall pregnant if not neutered before four to five months of age.
