  • Neutering of your pet at Chapel House Vets in Chesterfield

As well as preventing unwanted pregnancies, neutering as a number of additional benefits

Female animals will no longer come into season or attract unwanted attention from males. Ovarian cancer is also prevented, along with potentially life-threatening conditions such as uterine infection (pyometra).

Neutered male animals, on the other hand, will no longer be at risk of testicular cancer or prostate hyperplasia, and may be less likely to demonstrate aggressive and territorial behaviour.

What does neutering involve?

Neutering is a surgical procedure performed under general anaesthesia to remove part or all of an animal’s reproductive organs, preventing them from reproducing. In males, it is called castration and in females, spaying.
