What Does Castration, Neutering and Spaying Mean?

Bitch Spaying (female dogs)

Traditionally, spaying involves the surgical removal of the whole reproductive tract (ovaries and uterus), however we’re proud to offer a less invasive procedure for younger dogs.

By removing just the ovaries, it has been shown to retain the same health benefits as traditional spaying but with reduced postoperative discomfort for your dog.

Castration (neutering male dogs)

This is the surgical removal of the testicles under general anaesthesia. It is performed via a small incision and buried sutures are used to reduce irritation.

Cat Neutering

For female cats this involves the surgical removal of the ovaries and uterus (the reproductive tract) through a small incision on their flank. It is performed under general anaesthesia and there are buried sutures used to close the incision.

For male cats it is the surgical removal of the testicles under general anaesthesia.
