Pet Neutering & Aftercare

As well as preventing unwanted pregnancies and reducing the number of strays & family pets in rescue centres, neutering offers several health benefits too.

Neutering (also called female spay and male castration) is considered the most responsible action to take if you don’t intend to breed from your pet. Cats, dogs, rabbits, ferrets and some small furries can be neutered.

About the pet neutering procedure

If you choose to have your pet neutered at our Staines-upon-Thames vet practice near Heathrow, they will receive first class care all the way.

All our veterinary surgeons have a wealth of experience conducting pet neutering procedures. We have a fully-equipped operating theatre and up-to-the-minute monitoring machines. The procedure is usually quick and relatively straightforward.

Your pet will be given lots of love and attention whilst recovering in our comfortable pet ward. In the majority of cases, pets are at home recovering with their families the very same day.

If you are wondering when is the right time to neuter your dog, cat, rabbit, or other pet, call our practice on 01753 316081 for advice.
