Neutering is where vets surgically prevent pets from reproducing. For males, the operation is called castration and for females it is called spaying.
When castrating males, both testicles are removed which takes away the main source of testosterone.
When spaying females, both ovaries and the uterus are removed. This means the female is unable to get pregnant or have a season and males are unable to reproduce. You do not need to let an animal have one litter first.
All neutering procedures are carried out under general anesthetic and will involve your pet staying at the practice for the day. Neutering provides a wide range of benefits for your pet and yourself and keeps your pet healthy. If you wish to get your pet neutered, speak to your vet for the best advice on when to neuter.
