Neutering can have significant preventative health care benefits for pets. We recommend clients to spay non breeding female dogs, cats and rabbits to prevent unwanted pregnancy, womb infections, uterine and ovarian tumours and reduce the risk of mammary tumours.
Neutering male cats helps reduce roaming and breeding related fighting (activities which put entire males at great risk of serious disease or injury).
Male dogs that are not castrated are at risk of developing testicular cancer, prostate abnormalities and other hormonally driven anomalies such as anal adenomas. For some male rabbits neutering can reduce aggressive behaviour.
