  • Neutering of your pet at Chapel House Vets in Chesterfield

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.

Benefits of neutering 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.

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.

  • Prevents unwanted pregnancies and womb infections
  • Can help prevent tumours and breast cancer
  • Can also help prevent testicular cancer and prostate disease
  • Assists in preventing roaming and aggressive behaviour
  • It’s normal to neuter! 86% of owned cats and 71% of owned dogs in the UK are neutered*
