Neutering

Did you know that neutering has lots of benefits for all species of animal? We’ve teamed up with the University of Glasgow to offer a cut-price neutering programme for pet owners.

The reduced cost scheme helps pet owners make big savings. It can cost over £100 to neuter a cat at a vet but we can offer it at the discounted price of £35. For a dog to be neutered, it can cost over £300 at a private vet. Through our project, it costs £75 for a male and £100 a bitch – a saving of well over 60%.

What are the benefits of neutering? 

There’s a whole host of benefits to neutering your animal, including:

  • Helping with temperament, especially in males
  • Stops females coming in to season
  • Eliminates risk of unwanted litters
  • Avoids any complications from pregnancies 
  • Lessens the risk of diseases related to reproduction 
  • Reduces the number of strays

What does it involve?

The neutering procedure will be carried out by University of Glasgow final year Veterinary Medicine students with supervision by a fully qualified vet.

The surgery will take place every Thursday at the University of Glasgow Veterinary University.
