What is neutering?
Did you know… neutering can have significant preventative health care benefits for your pet?
Whether you have a new puppy or kitten at home, or a slightly older pet, neutering can play an important part of their healthcare for a happy and healthy lifestyle.
At Eastcott your pet is in the safest of hands. We have a team of experienced veterinary surgeons and registered veterinary nurses along with the best facilities to ensure your pets are well looked after. We also offer a keyhole surgery option for neutering which is a less invasive method of carrying out the procedure.
What’s more, members of our Pet Health for Life plan can claim a 10% discount on any neutering treatment following an initial consultation with one of our vets to discuss when’s the right time for your pet.
Benefits of neutering your pet
Neutering is a surgical procedure performed under general anaesthesia to remove part or all of an animal’s reproductive organs, preventing them from reproducing. In males, it is called castration and in females, spaying.
