Neutering & Spaying
Neutering means desexing and involves a castration procedure for a male, or a spay procedure for a female.
Get your pet neutered
Unless you plan to breed from your pet, it is advisable to have them neutered at an early age to prevent further breeding. Many owners wish to let their pets have a litter before neutering but this should be planned and considered thoroughly, as there are already plenty of puppies and kittens looking for homes and pregnancy itself is not without danger. Many females become worn out when nursing their young and the birthing process is not always straightforward.
Neutering is a relatively simple procedure with little risk to your pet and, if done at an early age, can prevent related illness later in life. Neutered animals tend to be healthier, happier and live longer lives.
