Why Neuter?

Spaying or Neutering Is Good for Your Pettwo cartoon cats

Spaying and neutering helps cats live longer, healthier lives
Spaying and neutering can eliminate or reduce the incidence of a number of health problems that can be very difficult or expensive to treat

Spaying or Neutering Is Good for You

Spaying and neutering makes pets better, more affectionate companions
Neutering cats makes them less likely to spray and mark territory
Neutering makes pets less likely to roam the neighbourhood, run away or get into fights

Another very important reason is that there are simply too many unwanted litters of kittens and not enough good homes to go around. There are unfortunately thousands of unwanted cats and kittens in the UK and neutering is the only effective way to reduce this growing number

  • Less likely to contract serious diseases such as feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV), and feline leukaemia virus (FeLV) through fighting
  • Less likely to display territorial behaviour such as spraying
  • Unable to develop tumours of the testicles

Neutered female cats are:
