  • Neutering

We recommend that male and female cats can be neutered at 5 ½ - 6 months of age. Male dogs are usually castrated from 6 months onwards, although individual client attitudes to this vary and so it is best discussed with our veterinary surgeons or nurses.

We advise that female dogs are spayed, unless they are to have a litter. It is possible for the operation to be performed before the first season or more than 3 months after a season.

Rabbits can be neutered from 4 months of age; there is a high incidence of cancer of the womb in female rabbits so neutering is especially advised.

Female ferrets should be neutered before their first season because they may otherwise develop life threatening anaemia.
