Neutering is the safest way to prevent unwanted breeding as well as having many health and behavioural benefits for your pet too

Are you planning to breed from your pet? If not, having them spayed or neutered is one of the most responsible and safest decisions you could make. Whilst the main aim of spaying (for females) and castrating (for males) is to prevent unwanted breeding, there are also a range of health benefits such as prevention of testicular and ovarian cancer.

The neutering procedure can also help to calm some behavioural issues that you may be finding with your pet. Neutered males are generally less aggressive towards both other animals and humans, easier to train and also not as likely to mark their territory through spraying. Females who are spayed will not come into heat which can often trigger some problematic behavioural and hormonal issues too.

Neutering is a relatively simple and straightforwardoperation, with your pet more than likely able to return home to recover on the same day as their surgery. You can rest assured that your pet will be both safe and comfortable at all times while they are in our care: our experienced team carry out a number of in-depth checks prior to any kind of surgery to ensure that your pet’s health is never compromised.

Another measure that has been taken with your pet’s wellbeing in mind here at Barna Vet Clinic is to invest in the best possible equipment. Our state-of-the-art facilities allow our vets and nurses to complete their tasks to the highest possible standard, resulting in the best outcome for your pet.
