Neutering male animals is called castration and involves their testicles (external reproductive organs) being removed. Female animals are spayed, which involves the ovaries and uterus (internal reproductive organs) being removed.
Typically, neutering is done in a day, with your pet arriving first thing in the morning and coming home to your care later the same day. Your pet will go under a general anaesthetic and will be looked after by our caring veterinary team. We will contact you after your pet’s procedure to tell you how they are and to arrange a time for you to collect them.
You can choose to have blood tests done before your pet is neutered that can help to detect some underlying health conditions, which could affect them during surgery. We would recommend this especially if your pet is from a rescue centre and their complete medical history is unknown.
You will receive instructions from our team on how to care for your pet at home after their procedure. Your pet will need a follow-up appointment 3 days afterwards so we can monitor their progress, and 10 days after to remove the stitches. If your pet stops eating, drinking or going to the toilet normally, or if the immediate area looks swollen or there is discharge from the wound, you should bring them in to see us straight away.
Cats and dogs require an aid to prevent them from messing with the stitches, we offer the regular plastic buster collars in various sizes or a pet t-shirt which can be more comfortable to wear.
The biggest benefit of neutering is the prevention of unwanted pregnancies, which in turn helps to keep the number of unwanted animals down. Millions of animals are left in shelters every year and many put to sleep as there simply isn’t enough resources to look after them all. Be aware, siblings will mate, which often results in offspring with deformities and birth defects. Neutering also stops false pregnancies, which can be upsetting for your pet.
Seasons are stressful for both male and female pets. Females become moody and protective, whereas males can become aggressive and will do anything to get to a female, including escaping and endangering their lives by crossing busy roads and getting lost. Seasons generally happen about twice a year and can be extremely messy, with females bleeding for up to 3 weeks. Walking your female dog can prove difficult too, trying to avoid unwanted male attention.
Neutering can reduce the risk of uterus infections and cancers in females, and testicular cancer in males. Neutering female ferrets can prevent often severe health problems such as alopecia and anaemia.
Neutering can reduce a male dog’s tendencies to urine mark their territory and wander off.
Neutering male pets should calm down their sexual behaviours such as humping and aggressive behaviours when they can sense a female is in season. Female cats in particular tend to be more friendlier and loving after being neutered. Neutering male ferrets can reduce aggressive behaviour as well as the smell often associated with them.
Thieves tend to target pets they can breed from. Neutering animals can reduce the risk of theft.
Sorted Alfred out! Great service lovely staff; thank you!Pete Collins, Facebook
Clent hills vets are amazing, they’re very professional yet friendly. You know that when you have your pets in their care they are well looked after and in good hands. My rabbit was took in not long ago who sadly passed away and they were so empathetic and caring. Everything I needed in regards to support or any questions I had to ask they answered in detail and sympathetically. I wouldn’t have my pets going to any other vets and have recommended to family and friends who now take their pets to Clent Hills too. Thank you for all the hard work you do.Sadie Goddard, Facebook
A great big “Thank You” to everyone at Clent Hills who has taken care of Sebastien over the past 5 days! It’s been a really upsetting time but he seems totally unfazed by the whole experience! Hopefully he won’t be eating any more Night Nurse capsules….Theagh Bytheway, Facebook
