Useful information on neutering

When should a bitch be spayed/neutered?

Vets prefer to spay at least 1 month after her last season & 1 month before the next. Bitches usually have 2 seasons a year. We can spay a bitch one month after the first season.

When should a cat be spayed/neutered?

Firstly, has she had kittens? We would rather operate once the kittens are weaned, the milk has dried up and when the cat is not in season (in season between the spring and autumn, usually every 3 weeks). Cats can be spayed from 6 months of age.

When should dogs or cats be castrated/neutered?

Firstly, does your dog or cat have two descended testicles? The operation is a little more complicated if he hasn’t. The vet may have to go fishing in the abdomen to find any undescended testicles! If you are unsure it is best to have checked by a vet before the operation. Castrations can be performed once both testicles have descended & from 6 months of age onwards.
