Neutering dogs, cats & other pets

If you are not planning to breed from your pet, neutering is one of the most responsible things you can have done for them. Ideally your pet will be neutered when they are very young, but we also neuter a lot of older pets too.

Your pet will be in excellent hands with our experienced veterinary team. Book a Vet consultation at Southill Vets so we can talk to you about when is the right time to neuter your dog, cat, rabbit, or small furry pet.

  • No risk of mating with siblings or neighbouring pets (cats & dogs) 
  • Prevention of breast cancer and uterus infections (pyometra) 



Pet neutering – what happens?

Neutering is a surgical procedure performed under general anaesthesia. Female pets are ‘spayed’ and have their ovaries and uterus removed. Male pets are castrated and have their testicles removed.

These procedures are normally done as day cases so your pet should be recovering in the comfort of your home on the evening.
