To coincide with the 2015 SpayAware campaign, Barna Vet Clinic is offering €10 off dog neutering and €5 off cat neutering during Spay Aware week 24-31st May 2015.
SpayAware is focused on reducing the number of cats and dogs euthanased in pounds every year. There has been a considerable reduction in numbers from almost 20,000 when SpayAware started in 2002 to about 3,500 dogs euthanased in 2015. There are no official figures for cats, but it is expected to be a much greater figure. The SpayAware goal is to have less than 1,000 dogs euthanased in pounds every year.
SpayAware is concerned with gathering and collating scientific data so vets can be sure that they are advising the general public with the most up-to-date information as regards the benefits and possible side-effects of neutering dogs and cats. SpayAware tries to give balanced information on the effects of neutering on behaviour and attempts to dispel the myths that surround the whole issue.
