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 £40. For a dog to be neutered, it can cost over £300 at a private vet. Through our project, it costs £80 for a male and £105 a bitch – a saving of well over 60%. Please note that we are currently only offering the procedure to male and female dogs under 25kg. We are also experiencing a high demand for bitch spay appointments so the waiting list can sometimes be very long. Anyone requiring the surgery for their dog more urgently should contact their own vet.


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 on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at the Glasgow ARRC Veterinary Clinic.

Address: Veterinary Clinic, Glasgow ARRC, 125 Kinnell Avenue, Cardonald, G52 3RY


Who is eligible?

With the easing of restrictions we are now able to offer a limited number of female dog spay appointments each week, in addition to male and female cats and male dogs. Due to housing we are only able to accommodate male and female dogs of under 25kgs.

The scheme is open to those living in the G1-G82 areas of Glasgow and for those in Paisley in the PA1-PA8 postcode districts.
