Having your pet neutered could be the best decision you ever make, both for them and for you
When it comes to your companion’s wellbeing, you’ll do everything in your power to keep them healthy and happy, won’t you? Did you know that having your pet neutered has a number of health benefits?
Neutering is a routine operation that involves the removal of the sexual organs. Male animals are castrated and female animals are spayed, removing all risk of unwanted pregnancy – it’s also a sensible decision to make if you don’t intend to breed from your pet.
As well as preventing any unexpected surprises, neutering has a number of additional benefits. For example, female animals will no longer come into season, bleed or attract unwanted attention from males. Ovarian cancer is also prevented, and uterine infections are banished. Neutered male animals, on the other hand, will no longer be at risk of testicular cancer or prostate hyperplasia, and will be less likely to demonstrate aggressive and territorial behaviour.
At Chapel House Vets our team of highly skilled vets have a wealth of experience when it comes to neutering animals. They appreciate that any operation – no matter how routine – can be a worrying time for you, which is why they will always explain everything to you in a language you will understand. You may also like to know that most pets we see are at home recovering with their owners the same day as their surgery.
