Why should I neuter my pet?

Early neutering greatly reduces the chances of some common, potentially life-threatening diseases.

Non-neutered dogs and bitches are at much higher risk of certain cancers, infections and diseases, unplanned litters, birthing problems (such as Dystocia – read about Honey’s story here), straying and sex-linked aggression.

Top 5 Benefits of Neutering:

  • Neutering prevents females coming into season, when they may attract unwanted male attention, become pregnant or have false pregnancies.
  • Neutering prevents the risk of testicular cancer in males and uterus infections and cancers in females.
  • Animals don’t respect family relationships – siblings will mate. This increases the risk of offspring with birth defects and deformities.
  • Neutering animals can reduce the risk of them being stolen for breeding.
  • Vet fees for problems during or after pregnancy and birth can be expensive. Offspring might need veterinary attention too.
