Neutering is often termed castration or spey in the male and female animal and brings many behavoral and health benefits as well as preventing your female animal becoming pregnant.

  • Prevent of cancer of the uterus and ovaries if done at 6 months of age
  • Prevent uterine infections – the pyometra
  • Stop the hormonal changes which cause bleeding and unwanted male dog attention and pregnancy.

Neutering a male will:

  • Prevent testicular cancer
  • Reduce diseases of the prostate
  • Prevent hormonally driven marking, roaming and can reduce aggressive behaviour
