Neutering

Neuter Your Pet To Prevent Them From Breeding

Animal neutering is the most responsible and financially sensible action to take if you don’t intend to breed from your pet. Cat castration and other pet neutering prevent many litters of unwanted animals from being born, which are then handed over to animal organisations by those who can’t afford or desire to keep them.

A pet spay and neuter is the act of removing an animal’s sexual organisations, with a male animal being castrated and a female animal having her ovary and/or womb removed. Neutering benefits both genders:

Female neutering benefits:

• No unwanted pregnancies

• Prevents uterus infections

• Reduces breast cancer risk

• Mating prevented

• No longer coming into season

Male neutering benefits:

• Prevents testicular cancer

• Mating prevented

• Reduced prostate problems

• Reduced hernia risk

• Aggressive behaviour, urinary marking and roaming reduced

You should have your cat neutered as they have a higher risk of falling pregnant due to being free to roam. Dogs should also be neutered if you desire, but other animals such as rabbits and ferrets can also be neutered.

Get in touch with Bay Vets now to book an appointment or get more information about neutering. We also provide dog and cat neutering aftercare with dedicated nurses to help monitor animals recovering from neutering. We aim to get your pet back to you by the end of the day in most cases.

Neutering is the most responsible action to take if you don’t intend to breed from your pet

Litters of baby animals are handed over to animal organisations too often, and the most common reason for this is that the owner couldn’t afford to keep them.

Neutering is the most financially sensible, as well as responsible action to take if you don’t intend to breed from your pet. As well as not having to worry about the cost of unwanted litters, the straightforward procedure can also prevent certain illnesses and behaviour.

When an animal is neutered, their sexual organs are removed. A female animal will be spayed by having her ovaries and/or womb removed, and a male animal will be castrated.

There are a number of benefits to having your pet neutered:

For female animals benefits include:

  • No unwanted pregnancy
  • No longer coming into season, bleeding and attracting unwanted attention
  • Uterus infections are prevented
  • Breast cancer is much reduced in risk
  • Mating with siblings is prevented

For male animals benefits include:

  • Roaming, aggressive behaviour and urinary marking is much reduced
  • Testicular cancer is prevented
  • Mating with siblings is prevented
  • Prostate problems are much reduced
  • Risk of hernias is much reduced

As well as cats and dogs, other animals such as ferrets and rabbits can also be neutered. It is recommended that animals are neutered at a young age to prevent accidents.

Unneutered cats are especially at risk of falling pregnant because they are free to roam outdoors. If this happens, have you thought about the time and energy kittens require? The cost of food, vaccinations, litter, bedding and toys will soon mount too.

At Bay Vets we pride ourselves on the aftercare we can promise your pet once they have been neutered. We have dedicated nurses who monitor recovering animals, and in the majority of cases, pets are home with their owners by the end of the day.

If you would like any further information about neutering, or to book an appointment for your pet to be neutered at Bay Vets, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Our team of friendly professionals are always happy to help you in any way they can.
