Neutering

Neutering dogs

Female Dogs
We like to see each bitch for a pre-Spey check, before booking in to have the procedure. The veterinary surgeon will check how the bitch has been in general, when her last season was and if she is showing any signs of coming into season, such as nesting or any discharge coming from their vulva. You will then be booked in by a receptionist.

Male Dogs
With dogs we ask that they have been seen by a vet to do a full health check and ensure that both testicles have descended, then to book in the procedure.

We ask that you starve your animal from 8pm the night before the procedure and to remove the water in the morning.

On the Day of the Procedure
On the day of the procedure your animal will be admitted by a nurse and asked a few questions; this should take no longer then 10-15 minutes. Your animal will then be taken through to kennels where it will be looked after by the nursing team until ready for surgery. The veterinary surgeon and anaesthetic nurse then prepare your animal for surgery, after which it is taken through to theatre for the procedure.

After the surgery is finished, the nursing team monitor your dog’s recovery, feed it, and take it out for a walk. When we are content your dog can go home, we arrange a time for you to collect, and set up a follow-up appointment to check that the healing process is going well.

Neutering cats

We ask that you starve your cat from 8pm the night before the procedure and to remove the water in the morning.

On the day of the procedure your cat will be admitted by a nurse and asked a few questions, this should take no longer then 10-15 minutes. Your cat will then be taken through to the cattery where it will be looked after by the nursing team until ready for surgery.

If we haven’t seen your cat during the last year, a veterinary surgeon will perform a health check before the procedure starts. The veterinary surgeon and anaesthetic nurse then prepare your animal for surgery, after which it is taken through to theatre for the procedure.

After the surgery is finished the nursing team monitor your cat’s recovery and feed it. When we are content your cat can go home, we arrange a time for you to collect, and set up a follow up appointment to check that the healing process is going well.

Neutering rabbits

Unlike cats and dogs, we ask you to keep feeding your rabbits because they like to graze throughout the day to keep their gut motility. We would appreciate it if you could pop their favourite food in their carrier and we can them offer it to them post-surgery, to encourage eating.

On the day of the procedure your rabbit will be admitted by a nurse and asked a few questions, this should take no longer then 10-15 minutes.

If we haven’t seen your rabbit during the last year, a vet will perform a health check before the procedure starts. Your rabbit will then be taken through to our exotics ward, where it will be looked after by the nursing team until ready for surgery. The veterinary surgeon and anaesthetic nurse then prepare your animal for surgery, after which it is taken through to theatre for the procedure.

After the surgery is finished the nursing team monitor your rabbit’s recovery and feed it. We make sure it has eaten and passed faeces to ensure its gut is working well. When we are content with it to go home, we arrange a time for you to collect, and set up a follow up appointment to check that the healing process is going well.
