Neutering

Neutering

Neutering means desexing and the precise procedure depends on the sex of your pet. It involves a castration procedure for a male, or a spay procedure for a female. Unless you plan to breed with your pet, we strongly recommend neutering cats and dogs when they reach maturity.


Neutering is a simple procedure with very little risk to your pet. The optimum age of neutering varies depending on the species, breed or reproductive status of your pet. Please speak to one of our vets or nurses to learn more about the best time.
