Neutering (castration and spaying)
Neutering is the general term used for the removal of the reproductive organs in female and male cats, dogs and rabbits. Neutering is also known as castration for males and as spaying for females.
The main reasons for having your pet neutered are to avoid unwanted pregnancies, to help control excessive sexual drive and reduce inappropriate sexual behaviour. Neutering can also help to prevent some life-threatening conditions that may otherwise occur in later life.
Neutering procedures are routine at Highcroft and carried out daily at most of our surgeries.
Highcroft was one of the first practices in the UK to perform female bitch spays by keyhole surgery (laparoscopy). This is a safer, less invasive method of surgery that will give your pet much smaller wounds, less post-operative pain and discomfort, and a quicker recovery.
