Neutering

The surgical removal of a male or female pet’s reproductive organ is known as neutering.

By reducing your pet’s vulnerability to some malignancies and pregnancy-related health problems, neutering helps to improve their general health. The likelihood of a neutered dog or cat living a healthier and happy life is higher.

Neutering Greenford - Paws in the City Dog on the table

Dog Neutering 

Dog castration, often known as neutering a male dog, can reduce undesirable behaviours like scent-marking, aggressiveness, and competition with unneutered dogs. Dogs who have been castrated will consequently be less distracted during training, which will help.

Spaying a female dog refers to neutering her. By preventing unplanned pregnancies, spaying a dog helps to reduce the health risks associated with pregnancy and childbirth.

Cat Neutering

Since they are less prone to roam, bite, mark their territory, or act aggressively, neutered cats are typically considerably better behaved.

Prior to their first heat, female cats should be spayed to help ward off some diseases and malignancies.

Male cat neutering reduces the danger of prostate issues and eliminates the possibility of testicular cancer.

Paws in the City are here to make the process as painless and comfortable for your pet as possible.

IVDD is a condition that can affect the cushioning discs between the bones in the spine, causing pressure on the spinal cord and may cause mobility issues. Some breeds such as French Bulldog, Dachshund, Pekingese, Beagle, Cocker Spaniel (amongst others) are at an increased risk for IVDD. Up to 24% of dachshunds suffer with this disease!

Please speak to one of our vets if your dog is showing signs of decreased mobility or pain in their back when moving.
