Neuter and spay your dogs to avoid more breeding

It’s simple – there’s too many dogs in the UK.

By taking away the possibility of breeding by having your dogs neutered or spayed, you can avoid any risk of more unwanted puppies.

In addition to saving lives, spaying and neutering can also drastically improve your pet’s behaviour, health and life expectancy.

“The British Veterinary Association (BVA) strongly supports the practice of neutering cats and dogs for preventing the birth of unwanted kittens and puppies and the perpetuation of genetic defects. Such surgical intervention removes the problems associated with finding homes or increasing the stray population.”

– Excerpt from an article about neutering on the British Veterinary Association website

How much will it cost to neuter/spay?

Prices of neutering and spaying vary widely across the country, but the cost is generally between £50-£200 depending on the gender and size of your dog.

If you’re on a low income and receive benefits you may be able to get low cost neutering/spaying through special schemes provided by organisations such as the PDSA, Dogs Trust and the RSPCA.

(We occasionally hear of low cost neutering schemes happening around the UK. When we do we’ll post about them in the ‘low cost vet treatment‘ category of our blog.)
