  • Neutering

Did you know… neutering can have significant preventative health care benefits for your pet?

Whether you have a new puppy or kitten at home, or a slightly older pet, neutering can play an important part of their healthcare for a happy and healthy lifestyle.

At Cherrydown Vets your pet is in the safest of hands. We have a team of experienced veterinary surgeons and registered veterinary nurses along with the best facilities to ensure your pets are well looked after. We also offer a keyhole surgery option for neutering which is a less invasive method of carrying out the procedure.

What’s more, members of our Pet Health for Life plan can claim a 10% discount on any neutering treatment following an initial consultation with one of our vets to discuss when’s the right time for your pet.

Benefits of neutering your pet

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*
