Cat Castration

Neutering is the general term used describe surgically removing some or all of the reproductive organs of your pet. In males, the operation is called castration and is a routine procedure carried out under general anaesthetic and can be performed on cats, dogs, rabbits and ferrets.

Why should I get my animal castrated?
Castration greatly reduces the risk of your pet getting tumours of the testicles as well as reducing stress if unable to find a mate.

Some people worry that their pet’s personality will change after being castrated.  This is not true but you might see a fall in certain behaviours such as roaming, spraying urine, mounting and fighting.

When should you castrate your pet?
Castration is usually done at a young age, but can be performed at any age.  If your pet is 8 years or over, our vets will recommend a blood test first to check overall health before the anaesthetic.
